Hello 2016 – we’re excited to see you!
A year ago, we weren’t quite sure what 2015 would have in store for us. Having just come out of what we thought was our last year in business, we had lots of trepidation and were optimistic at best. We knew it would be a very challenging year ramping back up, but we were up for the challenge.
After all, we had been off the market for almost a year, we were short on funding, we had lost many of our retail partners and new competition had entered the market place. Like we said – we had challenges to overcome, but overcome we did! 2015 will now go down in the books as our “Come Back Year”.
So here we are – ready to embrace 2016 and have it go down in the books as our “Kick-Ass Year”. Unlike a year ago, today we are positioned to accelerate our growth with new markets, new partners, new distribution and recognized as a purposed driven company and trusted source of natural, personal care and hygiene products.
A couple of things we are super excited about:
Our Healing Honey Stick will be launched on The Grommet January 15! The Grommet is the online launch platform for early-stage consumer products from independent makers like us. Since 2008, more than 60,000 products have been evaluated by The Grommet and they have only chosen 3% of those reviewed. Our Healing Honey Stick is handcrafted right here on the Central Coast and was chosen for its versatile use as a nourishing skin moisturizer and amazing wound care. This is a huge step for us and we are beyond ecstatic about it.
Working with Firefighters to help fight cancer. This is an important market, and more importantly, it is emotional and close to our hearts. We are beyond grateful to be working with such dedicated men and women that work hard and risk their lives to serve our communities.
Our global presence is expanding! We are now in Canada, United Kingdom and France and are working with our distribution partners to bring several more countries on board by the end of the year. This picture is of us meeting our 'French Connection' ;)
This is just a glimpse of what’s keeping us excited and confident that it pays to persevere. Thank you for your continued support, we couldn’t do this without you!
