We won an award!

We are so humbled and flattered to have won an award last night at the 15th Annual New Westminster Chamber of Commerce Celebration of Business Excellence Awards. We were nominated in the Best Home Based Business of the Year category, along with some great nominees. We didn’t think we would win given that our fellow nominees were well established businesses we respect and admire. So, when our names were announced we were shocked! And spent the next hour or so giggling and feeling extremely satisfied with ourselves and not really believing it had happened.

When we started our business a year ago, we really didn’t know what to expect. We knew we could likely find a few clients and projects and we knew we wanted to focus on small & medium size businesses and non profits in New Westminster. We had no idea that we’d be working hard to manage our success, and not in our wildest dreams did we expect to win Best Home Based Business of the Year.

We’d like to say thank you very much to our clients for your continued business and referrals, to our nominator for putting our name forward, and to our families, friends, and colleagues for your positive enthusiasm and support for Hyack Interactive. We are really excited about what our future holds and we are looking forward to continued growth and success.

Here are a few pictures from my phone – sorry for their quality.
