The FEAM: A Family-Driven Team 

Rather listen to this post?

The FEAM: A Family-Driven Team 

The FEAM, which stands for Family and team, but of course, the family comes before the team, is a unique team built around my family. As the dad of this remarkable family-driven initiative, I envisioned a business where the talents and skills of my wife and children could be nurtured and put to good use.

Now, when I decided I was opening my business, it wasn't even a thought that my family would soon be all part of the company, but hey, things happen for a reason!


Noah: The Podcast and Video Editing Prodigy and Handy Man 

Noah, who is my 20-year-old son, was the very first person to join our family team. He's exceptionally talented when it comes to creating podcasts and editing videos.

Additionally, his video editing skills are remarkable. Imagine taking raw video footage, like what you record on your phone, and turning it into a well-crafted, engaging video that can be shared online. That's what Noah does!

It's quite inspiring to see someone as young as Noah, with his dedication and talent, make a significant contribution to our family's business.

He also helps with client work, website pages and so much more making him a built-in handyman!

We can't wait to see what amazing things he'll continue to create in the future.

Kayle: The Versatile Role-Changer

My daughter, Kayle, is 18 years old, and she's like a versatile chameleon on our team. She first came on board as a project manager, which means she's good at organizing things and making sure everything is in the right place.

But what makes Kayle stand out is her ability to adapt and learn new things. Over time, she didn't just stick to one job.

Instead, she explored different roles within our family business and developed various skills. It's quite impressive how she embraced change and didn't let anything hold her back.

Today, she has become a true professional in creating content and writing. Her adaptability and determination have allowed her to excel in these areas.

It's impressive to see how she can tackle different tasks with such skill and enthusiasm. We're proud of how she's grown and developed in our team, and it's exciting to think about all the great things she'll continue to achieve in the future.

Kelly: The Project Manager and Billing Maestro

My lovely wife, Kelly, plays an indispensable role in our team. She's like the captain of our ship when it comes to project management and handling finances.

Although I won't spill the beans about her age (laughs), I can tell you that her wisdom and experience are invaluable. Kelly is the person who makes sure everything runs smoothly in our business.

She's like the behind-the-scenes magician who oversees all the organizational aspects.

Her ability to keep everything organized and on track is impressive. This means the rest of us can focus on our creative work, knowing that Kelly has the details covered.

It's remarkable to have someone like Kelly on our team who can balance our business's practical and creative sides.

Her dedication and expertise have been crucial to our success, and we couldn't imagine our family team without her.

We're excited to see how her skills will continue to guide us into a bright future.

Maddy: The Social Media Maven 

Then, there's my other wonderful daughter, Maddy, who is 22. She brought a ton of social media expertise and is incredibly skilled at managing our online presence.

It's truly remarkable how she helps us connect with our audience and effectively showcase our work. Maddy knows the ins and outs of social media platforms, like the ones you use to communicate with friends or follow your favorite celebrities. But she takes it a step further.

She uses her expertise to ensure our family business gets noticed and appreciated online. She knows all the tricks to catch people's attention and does it brilliantly.

With Maddy on our team, we can share what we do with the world in a way that's both engaging and fun. Her contribution has been vital in helping us reach more people and show them the amazing things we're capable of.

We're excited to see how she'll continue to help us grow and make our mark on the internet.

Seth: The Podcast and Video Editing Star 

My oldest son, Seth, who is 29 years old, is an expert in podcasting and video editing, just like his brother.

He's dedicated and passionate about it, which is amazing.

Even though Seth couldn't attend this year's INBOUND conference with us, we missed having him there to share the experience. It motivated us even more to ensure he could join us at the next event. We can't wait to have him with us in Boston, and his skills and creativity will add an extra layer of depth to our team's creative abilities.

Seth's journey is well underway, and we're excited to see all the incredible things he'll accomplish as he continues to follow his passion. We do not doubt that he's an essential part of our family team, contributing his unique talents to help us grow and achieve even more.

The INBOUND Experience

One of the most remarkable moments in the journey of the FEAM was our recent participation in the INBOUND conference. This exceptional event, expertly organized by HubSpot, stands as one of the top-tier gatherings in marketing, sales, and customer success.

It's a place where professionals from around the globe come together to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and learn from the very best in the industry.

The INBOUND conference provides a unique opportunity for networking, which means meeting and connecting with all sorts of people. It's like making new friends, but these friends are often experts in their fields. They have wisdom and experience to share, and it's a fantastic chance for our family team to learn from them.

Beyond networking, INBOUND is a hub of learning. We attended sessions where experts gave talks and shared their knowledge. It was like going to school but a lot more exciting!

We gained insights into the latest trends, strategies, and innovative ideas in our field. It's like discovering the treasure chest of information and bringing back valuable lessons to our family business.

But what made the experience truly incredible for our family was the chance to interact with industry leaders. These people are at the very top of their game, and they share their stories, insights, and vision for the future.

It was like having a backstage pass to see how the best in the business operate. It was truly inspiring for us and filled us with ideas and enthusiasm.

INBOUND isn't just an event; it's an adventure filled with opportunities to learn, connect, and grow. It's like a whirlwind of knowledge and inspiration that left an indelible mark on our family.

The lessons we learned, and the connections we made at INBOUND have significantly contributed to our growth and success. We can't wait to return to INBOUND and continue this fantastic journey of learning, networking, and discovery.
Family Bonding at its Best

INBOUND wasn't just a professional event; it was a heartwarming family experience. Our family shared aspirations, learned from one another, and grew even closer as a tight-knit unit.

Conversations over dinners, late-night brainstorming sessions, and reflections post-conference all strengthened our family and professional bonds.

The FEAM's Success Story

Our journey as the FEAM is not just about attending conferences or the roles we play within the business; it's about how we have successfully harnessed our talents, dedication, and family ties to build a thriving enterprise.

Each member of the FEAM brings a unique skill set to the table, from video editing to project management, content creation, billing, and social media. Leveraging these individual strengths has been crucial to our business success, ensuring we offer a diverse range of services to our clients.

Overcoming Challenges Together

Working as a family team has its share of challenges. Balancing personal and professional relationships, navigating disagreements, and setting clear boundaries have all been part of our journey.

However, our ability to overcome these challenges and emerge stronger as a team is a testament to our commitment to both our family and our business.

A Vision for the Future

The FEAM has ambitious plans for the future. We aim to expand our business, take on new clients, and continue pushing the boundaries of our creativity and expertise.

Our experience at INBOUND has fueled our ambition, and we are determined to make a significant impact in the industry.

The FEAM is a testament to the power of family bonds and how they can drive a successful business. Our journey, from our initial roles to attending INBOUND as a family, has been incredibly inspiring.

As we continue to grow and evolve, the FEAM stands as a reminder that anything is possible with dedication, unity, and a shared vision. We want to inspire others with our story and show that families can achieve remarkable things when they work together.
