I am starting a new bracelet today to mark the 1 year anniversary of our company. We’ve had lots of ups and plenty of downs but as I sit here beginning this bracelets journey I realize how grateful I am for the opportunity to experience all these phases of life and business. I have learned so much and have family and friends that probably don’t even realize how much their support has kept me moving forward. Today I am particularly reminded of a saying my Dad always said…”When the going gets tough, the tough get going”. It’s stuck with me my entire life and gotten me through some difficult times. He doesn’t know it yet but I will be passing this bracelet along to him as a token of my appreciation for always encouraging me, challenging me and keeping me humble. Thanks for being the best Dad and friend a girl could ever ask for.
