I want to let you in on a little bit of what is going on behind the scenes here in our East Coast office in New Hampshire.
Over the last few months, we’ve been reinvesting a lot of money and sweat equity into our little corner of this building. First, we expanded from just 1,200 sqft. to roughly 3,000 sqft. We’ve expanded into the unit next door so that we can offer a sufficient amount of studio space to be able to do pretty much whatever we want. We’ve also built a voiceover booth so that we can create high-end voiceover content for our videos, audiobooks . . . or to simply capture the random, goosebump-inducing vocal stylings of one Grant Morris.
Oh yeah, and we made a pretty slick entry way too.
Our East Coast office isn’t in a sexy highrise. Our neighbors aren’t supremely attractive models or upscale Fortune 500 type companies. Our office building is a place of passion, creativity, teamwork, and heart. What it lacks in sexiness and polish, it more than makes up for with the ideas, laughter, and remarkable customer service that I’m proud to be a part of.
You have to know, though, that it’s not the cheap rent that lured us to this little part of Nashua (though that didn’t hurt). We chose to locate here because we believe in this little neighborhood that’s trying so hard to get better. We decided, as a company, to be a part of that. It also doesn’t hurt that there’s an apartment building across the parking lot where one of our employees lives.
When we moved in almost two years ago, things were just starting to happen down here. Cotton Mill Square had just began leasing to new tenants, a little footbridge opened across the Nashua River, the Broad Street Parkway project had just started to ramp up, and what used to be an ugly old parking lot got a facelift with new pavement and beautiful, granite-curbed flower beds. Today, the improvements have slowed down a little bit, but I’m confident that people like us can help keep the drive to continue the improvement alive.
So, with all of that being said, I’d love to invite you down to our little spot in the Millyard and find out about what’s going on down by the river in Nashua. Maybe we can split a beer and talk about how we can pull in the same direction to try to make this little community on the border of Massachusetts and New Hampshire a real cradle of civilization, where business and personal life can flourish.
