Our ‪#‎TBT‬ falls an an awesome day! Five years ago today, Talking Finger, Social Media Marketing Agency became "legally official" when our LLC was approved. It took many months of hard work, planning, failing, experimenting, and sacrifice leading up to that day with my good buddy and co-founder Erik Granato. Thanks to our friends, family, clients, supporters and everyone else that made it possible! 

Thank you!
