SHIFTING DREAMS TO REALITY WITH PEOPLE AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT

How The Fiery Feather helped transform the concept of Topeka into a thriving business

In 2018, Andy Levine, a successful serial entrepreneur and chairman of Sixthman, was assessing multiple business concepts and needed help with the evaluation and prioritization of his ideas and assistance in executing them. For that, he partnered with The Fiery Feather.

Together, The Fiery Feather and Andy honed in on Topeka–Andy’s next big undertaking–and went to work. Theresa created a project plan and connected Andy with the resources and team members he would need for that plan’s execution including a UX Designer, Web Developer, and Branding Strategist.

As their team grew, their approach had to adapt. Theresa kept up the project’s momentum by not only making the necessary modifications to their timeline, but by keeping tabs on all of the details of the initiative to avoid duplicative work and expenses. She managed communications, project plans, and files between different specialists, serving as a mediator for challenges that arose between team members along the way.

Today, thanks to their critical partnership, Topeka has passed its one-year anniversary with unprecedented success. Not only has the team been able to successfully pivot during the pandemic, but they’ve received an abundance of positive press and maintained their growth momentum along the way.

“With an idea that you want to bring to life, Theresa is absolutely the person you want quarterbacking and leading and driving the project. I loved working with Theresa – she knew everything that was going on, she was driving it forward by leveraging other people’s talents. Before, Topeka was just an idea. With The Fiery Feather’s help, my idea became reality.” ⁠— Andy Levine
