Cedric shares his story of how he started his digital marketing agency after graduating from university with an internship in social media marketing. He noticed a lack of knowledge in social media marketing among his peers, colleagues, and even the university professors, which sparked his interest in starting his own business.

However, he used his network and eventually grew his client base to over 250 businesses in nine different states, including small and large companies, nonprofits, politicians, and restaurants.
