Over a year and a half ago I stepped away from advertising and branding to to pursue something I had always wanted to do: grow a company of my own, develop a brand from the ground up, and be responsible for my own professional destiny.
I thought it was going to be a simple creative sabbatical, but it turned out way different than I imagined.
The shift from working behind a desk with my brain all day, removed from the real world, to working with my brain AND hands has been a wonderful and enlightening experience.
Additionally, it helped me realize that 99% of the advertising I saw done before was useless to running an actual business.
For those of you thinking about a second career, it is possible. If you’re brave enough to step away from the comforts of your current condition.
As for my little business venture: The Bishop+Rook Family Continues To Grow
For the past year and a half, Bishop+Rook has been working with DNA Auto Centre of Cholderton, Wiltshire, UK as an extension of our American team – assisting on several Land Rover restoration projects and providing our team with workshop space at their facility.
We are now pleased to announce the acquisition of DNA Auto Centre by the Bishop+Rook Trading Company.
