Strangely, as I publish this article today, the emotions I experienced and felt announcing my new business and sharing my vision with the world, three years ago, are also present once again. Nervous. Anxious. Stressed. Fear of the the unknown. Uncertainty. At times, I’ve struggled to accept the current climate and it’s drastic negative impact on our business. At times, even just for the length of a random thought, I’ve dreaded today. The enormous highs and powerful bursts of positivity, pride, delight and celebration overshadowed by an intense gloom, deflation and nervousness.

However, I also write today with an imensely overwhelming feeling of gratitude and good fortune. I’d have no shyness in stating that I’ve worked diligently and extremely hard over the past 3.5 years to build what I have today, but a person can work hard and be unlucky, be given no opportunity. Hard work and dedication is a primary ingredient in any recipe for achievement but without luck or good fortune it cannot guarantee you success. I’m proud of the part I’ve played but I’m forever indebted to the people and opportunities I’ve been blessed with.

The people. Be it starting a business, completing a degree, winning a championship, raising a child, beating an addiction, it absolutey does not matter what the goal is – what all these examples have in common is that they all heavily rely on a strong and reliable support system to be achieved. The people around you are fundamentally vital to achieveing anything. Our business and my progress, to date, is no different.

To Mark, Ali, Keelan + Colin, you all know I hold you in the highest regard. You all individually personify what a genuine, kind, hard working person should be. Collectively you are the back bone of this great little business. Thank you! β€οΈπŸ–€ To my Mum, Dad & Katie. There is no business and no 3 year anniversary without you. I’ll continue to work as hard as I can to repay you for a lifetime of love and support. Thank you. β€οΈπŸ–€ To our friends, families, clients and colleagues. To our online friends and followers and to everyone who’s ever even just said “Hello!” Thank you! β€οΈπŸ–€

If the next three bring even a fraction of joy, fullfillment and friendship that the last three have brought, I cannot wait to be a part of it!

A heartfelt Thank You to one and all! β€οΈπŸ–€ We can’t wait to see you all very soon!

Mind yourselves, mind each other!

Stay safe!
