“I had spent nearly 20 years in the nonprofit sector before starting my business,” says D’Agostino. “My additional nearly five years serving in editorial positions at weekly newspapers and business publications as well as my journalism degree gave me a grounding in developing and telling stories which is what any good marketing person does. So when I started my business I assumed my clients would be nonprofits,” she adds.
As the business grew in the first year small businesses came to her as well. “Initially I wasn’t sure that I would like working with small businesses, but what I found out was it was the passion of the leaders in the organization that drove me, not whether it was for profit or nonprofit. I feel privileged to help so many amazing nonprofits, local agencies and small businesses reach their goals. The 10 for 10 anniversary celebration allows me to says thanks. Through the campaign I can honor my roots in nonprofits and honor my clients as well,” she says.
