Business always brings fresh challenges, doesn’t it? Today’s little curveball came in the form of a note informing us that another agency are passing our work off as their own on their website, which as we all know is Extremely Uncool. The full story on this is available in today’s stories (15 secs is certainly not long enough for a rant! 😂)
Anyway. As with most things in life, it can be positive or negative depending on your mindset and so we’re choosing to see this positively. While it’s not at all ok that these cheeky buggers have nicked our work (and we are taking action on this front), the positives are the amazing people out there who look out for each other. We were made aware of this l’il issue by some lovely person who sent us a note over the weekend - anonymously- which was incredibly kind. A shout out also to @audenzahome who actually posted last week about copyright (I believe you can see this in their story highlights), being generous with their advice and knowledge on how to tackle this problem. Because for us, it’s not an issue right now - but for those whose work is constantly being passed off, it’s a downright insult. Not to mention something that is a) illegal and b) harmful to business. Within a few minutes a kind business friend had stepped in with some sound advice and presto, it’s being dealt with.
So I guess the moral of the story is that while shitty things can and do happen, the support that can be gained from having wonderful people around you makes these little challenges so much easier. Look after your people, and they will look after you ❤️
