We had the good fortune of connecting with Donna Galassi and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Donna, what do you attribute your success to?
I’ve been in business for over eleven years, and have grown from a solo-preneur to a team of four. 2020 has been a year of challenges and a year of opportunity for us. The number one most important factor behind the success and growth of my business is simple – its having a big vision, and seeing purpose as something bigger than myself. To me, it comes down to recognizing the transformation made in the lives of our customers, seeing how working with us changes their lives and business. It is that which keeps me inspired.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Our company, Blue Zenith Design + Strategy provides digital marketing solutions. We see our digital marketing services as pieces of a puzzle, parts that need to always drive a business forward: mainly, getting more customers to grow your business.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love being in the mountains! Getting in touch with nature – and away from my computer screen – is always my top priority on a summer afternoon. My favorite place in the Colorado mountains is Summit County, Colorado. Anyone coming to visit needs to be immersed in that beauty. This trip would need to be a long weekend in July.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I operate my business with my son, Alex Galassi. He’s been with Blue Zenith 7 of the 11 years in business. He began working with me after graduating college in 2013. His partnership has allowed the business to thrive and grow. He has the same level of compassion for our customers as I do, the same desire to see their growth through our services. His partnership has allowed me to focus on growing the business, while he manages much of the development work. I am forever grateful for his being part of this entrepreneurial journey!
