  • Thanks for the inside peek into many aspects of running Murmur Creative! I always enjoy hearing how other agencies do things behind the scenes. I’m growing my team too, so it was interesting to hear how you’ve done that.

  • Thanks Chad! We’re happy to share. It’s a fun and challenging journey. And I know we’re not the only ones figuring all this stuff out!
