Looking for a marketing agency that is the perfect fit for your business might be as simple as finding one that is the ideal fit for its employees. Not sure what I mean? Read on.
In Search of Happiness
If you’re like me, you want to be as happy as you are with your work as you are with where you work. Not surprisingly these two things often go hand-in-hand.

If happiness is my goal then working at SMA was the right move for me. So how did I know that SMA and I were a good fit? Well, there a few things I can highlight. The first is the owner. Ryan probably doesn’t want to read this but working for him has been a dream. He treats the SMA team as humans capable of great things and understanding that they are also capable of mistakes.
