Lettering Works is moving to Chicago!*
Now that I have your attention, let me take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made my time in Peoria such an incredible experience AND assure you that I will be continuing working with Peoria clients. I am excited to bring new connections and ideas from Chicago back to Peoria and will be forever grateful to this place for fostering the growth of my small business.
*I say “Lettering Works is moving to Chicago” because I am moving to Chicago June 1st and I suppose that means that Lettering Works is coming with, although you shouldn’t expect to see Lettering Works disappear from Peoria - because there are enough projects floating around to last quite a while in addition to new ones I will continue to accept.
For anyone who doesn’t know, I am originally from the Chicago suburbs. I grew up always hoping that I’d be able to spend a year in my twenties in the city. This will be that year. I am excited for the new challenges and opportunities that a larger market will provide. I look forward to reconnecting with those I’ve worked with in the Chicago area as well as making new connections.
Thoughts on Peoria
Peoria has provided me a solid foundation and the best start to my business. From winning the $10,000 from Bradley’s Student Entrepreneurship competition that allowed me to set up shop here to the many lessons and experiences I gained, I feel Peoria equipped me to more confidently move into a larger market. Without the many individuals that have stood behind me, encouraged me, and hired me in this area, I don’t believe I’d be ready to take this next step for my business.
Peoria has a lot of potential. When I started out in business, I had so much hope that I could make a difference. And while I feel (and hope) that I did, I know there are a lot of factors and reasons why things can’t always move as quickly here as we would like. I poured my heart and soul into building this city into something better and I hope that I left it better off than when I got here. To my friends in Peoria, keep making things happen. After these three years in business here, I am even more excited to see where we are at in the next three.
