成功的故事

炉边生产

“With resources like the Denver Metro Chamber and the Denver Metro SBDC – and a community of entrepreneurs and leaders who are so willing to share their insights – I have to admit, learning how to run a business has been one of my greatest joys.” Naomi Binkley, founder and managing partner of 炉边生产 said.

Naomi Binkley and Tom McDonald make their living telling others’ stories through video. 他们致力于带来创造力, leveraging technology and taking a genuine interest in every project. Now that their business is entering its teenage years, they’re focused on sustaining and growing their company.

他们的生意是出于需要而开始的.

In 2005, she left her full-time career as a journalist to raise her and McDonald’s daughter. 当经济衰退袭来时, 她的很多自由职业都枯竭了:“突然之间, 我们的薪水涨了个不停.”

因为他们正在考虑下一步, 他们认识的人邀请他们拍摄项目, 脚本或语音视频. They started by borrowing or renting equipment and slowly saving up money after each project to purchase their own gear.

By February 2006, they decided to name their venture. 炉边生产诞生了.

和许多企业家一样, 宾克利和她的丈夫是这一行的专家, 但对经营企业还是个新手. They had to connect with the right people and businesses and build the right skills and support to build Fireside.

Binkley began to engage with the Chamber and Denver Metro SBDC in 2009, receiving one-on-one consulting and attending programs. They also applied for Emerging Business of the Year Award in 2011 at the Chamber’s Business Awards – becoming a finalist that year and winning the following. Today, they sponsor the event and provide video services for it.

“The relationships that we’ve built through the Chamber over the past seven years have been some of the most powerful – and meaningful – of my life,”Binkley说. “我做了朋友. I’ve learned about myself and developed my strengths and skills. 我对我们的社区有了新的认识.”

As the Fireside team – now five strong – looks to the future, they’re focused on smart growth. They’ve recently added drone video to their arsenal of offerings and have developed their own apprenticeship program to grow their team, Binkley said: “We are working to achieve that delicate balance of maintaining the quality and spirit that Fireside is known for – while needing to add (and pay for) new members to the Fireside team to ensure we can continue to turn videos for our clients quickly and meet demand.”
