“In this industry, you either evolve or become obsolete. I’m constantly learning, but just like any growing business, I’m always looking for ways we can better serve our clients and build stronger partnerships. This last year, I’ve put lots of thought into processes, smart growth and investing into our current team.”
It’s finally Fall! It’s that time of the year when we take our sweaters out of boxes (even though it’s still 100 degrees in Austin, TX) and consume pumpkin-spice flavored everything, despite what the haters say. As October 31st approaches, we could all use a fun night out to get us in the Halloween spirit! We have entertainment options for everyone, on the big screen AND the small screen, in-person, and even up close and personal!
Mark your calendars, because we’ve compiled a list of five Fall festivals this month, where you can eat, drink, play, and even immerse yourself into other cultures while doing it. All events are kid friendly and some are free to enter!
October is the perfect month to stroll around and shop for fresh food and vintage finds- the weather is cooling down, everyone is in a cheery Autumn mood, cravings for pumpkin pie are peaking. Luckily, Austin is a hot spot for flea markets and farmers markets. No matter your schedule or budget, you can find the occasion to shop around every week this month. Plus, most are completely free to enter!
As we look back on SXSW 2018, it is hard to ignore some of the most innovative and unique happenings brought to our backyard this March. Activations, celebrities and creators alike flocked to Austin for a week full of events surrounding the industries of technology, music, film, media, marketing and advertising, journalism and much more. Our very own Founder and Managing Partner, James Trumbly, was lucky enough to attend many of these sessions and could not help but gush about the amazing times he had this year. Can you blame him? Below are some of HMG’s favorite picks for SXSW’s most interesting and even impromptu events.
