Hullo Hopes for 2017

 

It's time to reflect on 2016! What a year it has been socially and politically, it is a year we will all remember for a long time, for many reasons. It has been a year of change and growth for Hullo and as we get into 2017 we thought we would share our hopes for the coming year...

Following an amazing visioning day at the end of October we came up with three key phrases that we thought encapsulated all that we are.

Be kind and courageous
— amy trevaskus, digital marketing manager

We kept coming across this phrase and versions of it before we had our visioning day and we loved it. It sits really well with me. Even when I was little I just thought - if only we could just be nice to each other, the world would be a better place. Now as a grown up (maybe) I feel the same, and some. I truly believe that what you give out, you get back. It's happened time and time again!

At Hullo, we are so incredibly passionate about helping small businesses flourish and being kind and courageous to all will be integral to our own success next year - what a phrase to live by. This year we want to resource and facilitate small businesses communicating their message with compassion and courage.

 

Take the limits off
— Suzi Hull, creative director

We spend our lives excusing why we can’t do things or don’t have time for this and that. 2017, I want to take off limiting beliefs of us as a business, me as a person and our clients. I want to see people we work with and do life with, being strong and courageous like Amy said, but also embracing where they’re at rather than being afraid and limited by our circumstances. We can do incredibly more that we expect of ourselves if we just take the limits off and free our minds to believe we can. Just imagine what we can do when we let our heart lead us rather than our minds.

This year is about seeing the new elements in life as tools in my belt rather than things that will hold me back. Here comes a year filled with potential, freedom and limitless possibilities. Seeing our shop products encourage people to be kind and courageous in their walk in life and Hullo Studio helping resource them in their businesses.

Dream big, dream true
— Emily Jones, studio manager

When we did our Vision Day a few weeks back, I had this sense that we should be dreaming big as a collective but also dreaming authentically… dreaming true. It’s not unusual to say “I want to grow next year” but harder to say, we want to be more effective at what we’re doing and being stronger and more considered in how we approach our day to day work. 2017 isn't necessarily about growing in numbers of employees and clients but connecting with the business we’re passionate about, training ourselves and clients on a deeper level, and having fun networking with like-minded businesses and start ups. 

It's time to dream about where we're meant to be going next. This year, lets stay connected, relax and enjoy the next bit of the journey together.
