Meet Leah Sadowski of LMS Agency

Today we’d like to introduce you to Leah Sadowski .

Leah, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
My entrepreneurial story began in late 2008. I was a casualty of ‘the crash’ or the Global Financial Crisis. Only a few years out of college, I was working at a media buying firm when layoffs and department shutdowns started happening daily, I knew my days were numbered. It was a sink or swim moment in my life and I decided to swim.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There is nothing smooth about any start-up company. The fear of the phone never ringing again is as real as your next mortgage payment. I started my social media company, LMS Agency when social media was just on the cusp of being a high priority for businesses. Not only was I tasked with the feat to drum up business, I had to also educate prospective clients on why they needed social media and validate it as a necessary and valuable marketing strategy.

Social media is free right? Why should I pay for it? I had zero capital, a phone and computer, two dogs as office mates and a lot of cheap, frozen pizzas to tide us through. Armed with a solid business plan, a few lucky breaks and a lot of hard work, LMS Agency has been helping clients grow for nearly 10 years.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about LMS Agency – what should we know?
LMS Agency is a boutique social media and internet marketing company that specializes in building a social strategy for boutique brands and small businesses. We understand the plight of entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses– the limitations of their budgets and the trust that is needed to allow us to get you to the next evolution of your social media goals. It can be an intimidating hump to get over and we pride ourselves on supporting companies through each step of the “social” adventure.

I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help companies at an early stage and/or being integral in moving them to the next level. It also keeps it fresh and fun. Imagine starting your day with plastic surgery & magnetic eyelashes, moving into colossal-sized tenting & front-loading machines AND round it out with strategies to raise money for a non-profit pop-up park. It keeps it interesting and balanced… every single day.

I am a self-described passionate misfit, the underdog (with real dogs) and laugh-at-my-own-jokes kind of person. At all times I have a phone, computer & tablet in my hands. I work late. I work early. I work hard. I laugh a lot.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
The best part of LMS Agency is our down-to-earth approach. We are truly an extension of your brand, which we treat like family. Our small team of three humans and two office dogs take on every project with style, humor and pizza… LOTS of pizza.
