- A messaged from our founder Justin Barnes BA-BCMS, MBA:
It's been an incredible rollercoaster ride, filled with good months and challenging ones. But that's what entrepreneurship is all about, right?
Learning, adapting, and growing.
As we celebrate Rocket Launcher's 3rd birthday this weekend, I want to express my gratitude to everyone who has been a part of this amazing journey.
First and foremost, I want to thank my incredible business coach, Suzzanne, who has supported me from day one. Your guidance has been invaluable, and I couldn't have done it without you.
I also want to express my heartfelt appreciation to our long-term clients, including Suzzane Laidlaw, Justin Prince, Angelina Allen Kate Tsorvas & Theo Tsorvas, Ciara Brennan, Jacson Chung at AGAR, AJR Energy Solutions, Maryline Cassou, Danyman Images, Stephen Vlam, Mark Bossong, Paul Bossong, Darren Peterson (he/him), Urban Future, WHS Foundation, Laura Pickup, Trevor Fraser, Paul Ashburne, Toni Ashburne, Philippa Lonie & Todd Lonie, Shay Duldig, Magda Lipnicka & Conor, Jeff Bowman, Leanne Bicknell, Carmen Solorzano & Lizette Viljoen, The Mighty Booths, Monitor WA, Inner Body Composition, GRAI - GLBTI Rights in Ageing Inc. and countless others.
Your support has been invaluable, and I am truly thankful.
I also need to thank the team of people that make up Rocket Launcher - the ones I rely on, complain to and help me do all of the work we do. Julyan, Scott, Alysha, Anuj, Georges, Patrick, Kyle and many others who have helped me, contracted to the business or been interns! This business would not run without your support.
The entrepreneurial journey is wild, and it gets even crazier when you decide to launch another venture like Perth Networking Club. But the benefits are immeasurable, as I get to support and learn from incredible business people and owners like you.
None of this would have been possible without my family, especially my partner Harvey Dinh. A few years ago, I wouldn't have imagined mentioning my "male partner" out in the professional world, let alone starting this exciting business with him by my side.
Here's to breaking barriers, challenging the status quo, giving back and embracing change!
As we enter this new year, let's continue to innovate, provide exceptional customer experiences, challenge the status quo, and make a lasting impact on the WA business landscape.
Thank you all for being a part of Rocket Launcher's journey! 🚀🥂
