On any given day, Mary Boland can be found shooting videos of one of the local breweries in trade for free beer. A former Plum Island resident, Mary operates a video production company that has its roots in Newburyport, but is now right next door in Amesbury MA. In the early days of Anchor Hitch Media, Mary collaborated with locals like Dancing Goats Dairy, Newburyport Brewing Company, Metzy’s, Riverwalk and other emerging young companies. She believes in new companies building each other up to help each other achieve success. She is now in her 5th year owning and operating Anchor Hitch Media and although not trading work for tacos anymore, she still shoots some video “just for fun.”
Mary is thrilled to be part of YPP because, “It’s not about age, but it’s about having a fresh mentality and approach to networking. Networking should be fun, engaging, interactive, low cost, philanthropic, creative and purposeful. YPP is organized and lead by a dynamic group of new business owners who understand the pain points of getting started and staying open. We are not some “old boys club.” We don’t have an antiquated model whose only goal is to pay the organizers. We are a non-exclusive group where the goal is to inspire collaboration, co-working and innovative ideas!”
When she’s not shooting marketing and promotional videos, Mary can be found out on the boat in the summer or walking in the woods with her dog Chance in the winter.
