We’re Samantha and Andrea, the founders of Harlow. We first met in 2014 at Campaign Monitor, an email marketing company. Andrea was the CMO and Samantha was running marketing for the self-service business. During our time there, we worked closely with an amazing network of freelancers who helped us create and launch some of our most successful campaigns.
In 2018, we were both craving more autonomy and wanted the power to set our own schedules. So we left Campaign Monitor to found Interimly, a boutique consulting firm where we worked with early-stage software startups to build growth strategies and programs. We learned first-hand how challenging and rewarding freelance life can be.
The reality is, most of us didn’t set out to be small business owners—we just wanted to put our skills to work for ourselves. But we are business owners now. We build, market, and manage our own businesses on top of serving our clients, and that’s a LOT.
We’re also humans with lives outside of our clients. We have partners and pets (see above) and plants that want our attention, not to mention our own selves. Boosting our productivity and cutting down on busy work can make all the difference when it comes to our quality of life.
As the freelance community grows, we’ve seen a rising need for a simple, intuitive system that can streamline basic business operations. That’s why we’re here today.
