You can’t expect creative types to limit productivity to a strict nine-to-five schedule. That’s not creative at all. Life shouldn’t be divided into weekdays and weekends or work and vacation. When everyone else zigs, we zag. It's part of our nature. Life should be about building and living our own dreams, instead of the dreams of others. We believe in putting our creative passions first, going all in and being enthusiastic, authentic and bold.
Our dream is to push you to behave boldly and build the life of your dreams. Hello, Friday lifestyle and a proper life-life balance. Forget work-life balance, you can make the life you want and eliminate the feeling of work entirely. We’re not saying this is easy, but pouring your heart into difficult tasks you’re passionate about feels a lot less like work than things you do simply to pay bills. Yes, it is possible and we’re proof.
You want to make something more of yourself and we want to help. We’re in your boat, rowing to make your dreams come true. We understand that it can feel like you’re losing the battle trying to row upstream while simultaneously feeling the euphoria of winning. Living on your own terms comes at a price, but it’s cheap compared to the alternative. Behave boldly!
Isn’t it obvious? It's a name that screams "super fun times" and we liked the sound of it. Everyone loves ponies and we all live in anticipation of the next Friday—together they represent the best possible combination. And we truly believe that every day can feel like a Pony Friday!
Besides loving our name because it’s fun and captures everything we stand for, there is a back story on where it came from. If you want to know how that idea popped up you’ll have to hear our founder’s talk.
Seriously, we love to blog and make inspiring content for you to digest wherever and whenever you want. You can learn more about our three different blogs here or go click on the menu and get straight into reading. We regularly tackle motivation stumbling blocks, share about our own experiences as a growing business and offer insight into ways others are conquering the world. There is no right answer for everyone, we’re all on our own journeys and what to make sure we’re cheering you along in the way that you most need it. Each entry has own unique pony-tastic cartoon that are worth seeing, even if you aren’t really into reading. Plus, if you have an idea for future blog post or a question you’re dying to have contemplated, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do about posting it.
Okay, we know that’s all very lovely and you want to know more about what we actually do and how we actually make money. Our business model is always evolving, like a child deciding what colour of crayon they like best. We know we like to colour outside the lines, but we aren’t stuck on one way of making that happen. Some of the ways we generate money is by running bootcamps, selling sweet merchandise and offering creative services to companies that aren’t great at thinking outside the box.
If you’re not sure what we mean by “creative services” you can label it with traditional marketing agency terms such as design, copywriting, creative direction, creative strategy and branding work. We work with a select number of direct clients looking to stand out from their competition and gain an edge.
There's no point in helping someone else build their dream unless you happen to be dreaming about the same thing—which is unlikely at best. We think you are on this planet to contribute something truly magical and don't want you to stop because of the naysayers. We know those naysayers can be a struggle to overcome, especially when they're the voice in your head—yikes! Our official mission:
To encourage you to behave boldly and chase down dreams like they're already yours.
All the big companies have a vision statement and we didn't want to be left out of the action just because we're small. All great things have humble beginnings, think of the acorn. We're a little acorn with a big vision and a big heart. Our official vision:
The creative industry leader in helping you be your most authentic self.
We do what we can with what we have. And we’re lucky enough to be able to support some pretty amazing local non-profit organizations. Visit our support local page to see what we’re doing this year.
