It was a Monday morning, huddled over some strong coffee, when the team at Hashtag Creative realized that we had a collective crush on Tom Brady. Strictly professional though, you understand. *Cough*

Most of us had spent the weekend cheering on the Buccaneers quarterback and came to the same conclusion: if our company had a spirit animal, it would be Tom Brady. 

We can totally explain…

  1. He’s a family man 

When Tom Brady announced his retirement after 22 years in the NFL in a heartfelt Instagram post, he was putting his wife and three kids first. “Our family is my greatest achievement,” Tom posted on Instagram. He described his wife, Gisele Bundchen, and kids as his “biggest supporters.” 

This, friends, is the secret sauce right there. No matter how high your career flies, it never comes above who’s waiting for you when you get home.

  1. He’s a social animal

It’s not just the sheer volume of followers that Tom Brady has on social media that impresses us.  (It’s almost 12 million, on Instagram, if you must know). It’s the quality. Tom has teamed with a strong Social Media management company and he writes his own statements and approves all posts on his personal channels. Smart. 

We’ve been saying it for years: it’s not about the likes and followers, it’s about brand recognition, brand loyalty, consistency, conversions, and strategy.  

  1. He’s a team player

Considered the greatest quarterback of all time, Tom has won 7 Super Bowl titles, 5 Super Bowl MVPs, and 3 NFL MVP awards. Then there are the 15 Pro Bowl selections, and the 3 first-team All-Pro nods. Impressive.

However, Tom knows that it’s the strength of his team that counts. That’s the money shot, folks. 

This rings true for us: a win for anyone on our team is a win for all of us. Because whether crisis or success, we are pulling in the same direction. Go team!

  1. He’s all-in

“I have always believed the sport of football is an all-in proposition- if a 100% competitive commitment isn’t there, you won’t succeed, and success is what I love so much about our game,” Tom remarked on Instagram.

The all-in rule is a good rule to live by, and we’re all in for our clients. If we commit to them, it’s hut…hut…hike!

  1. He’s all about potential

“There is a physical, mental, and emotional challenge EVERY single day that has allowed me to maximize my highest potential. And I have tried my very best these past 22 years,” Tom stated on Instagram. 

Potential is something we believe in, too. Individually, our team players are like Legos: bright, colorful, and full of possibilities. But when clicked together, we have the potential to build something special.

End zone

Work-life balance is something our team values. After all, we work our shoulder pads off. 

Monday to Friday we huddle, craft marketing campaigns, design sleek websites, and create content for our amazing clients. At the weekend, we turn off that laptop, grab a cold beer, and cheer for the Buccaneers. When Monday comes, we’re back in action. Creative geniuses need rest we’ll have you know.

So Tom, if you’re reading this, there’s always a job for you here at Hashtag Creative. We think you’d fit right in. Clean your coffee cup, though, we are not your mom.

But until that glorious day comes, our little team of winners will keep on scoring touchdowns for our clients.  

If, like Tom, you’re ready to have your social media managed by the experts, get in touch. You’ll get dedication, motivation, and results. And hey, we never fumble the ball.
