Hi friends! What a year it has been. We can’t believe 2018 is winding down already! In today’s blog post, we thought we would reflect on our year. We’d be honored if you join us for a trip down memory lane.
When I think back to where we started two years ago, I never cease to be amazed at how far we’ve come. Owning a business is hard, but has been one of the best things that has ever happened to us. I know for me at least it tests me in ways that I never have thought possible, but at the end of the day, I wouldn’t change a thing.
Looking back on 2018, we have accomplished so many things. We remodeled our workshop area, attended our first Fusion Merchant Retreat, celebrated our 2nd Anniversary and so much more! I mean, we expanded our inventory, got over 16,000 followers on Facebook, completely revamped our website, started a blog and a podcast, I can go on and on (I promise I won’t) so much has happened over the past year and we have so much to be thankful for.
Starting a blog and a podcast was one of the highlights of our year, but I’m going to be honest here, it was a little scary for us to put ourselves out there in such a different way. We love putting out this content now, but starting something new can be scary and it sometimes takes a leap of faith. Knowing we have gotten such a great response from you guys, makes us want to produce the best content we can, so definitely keep an eye out for more fun blogs and podcasts in the new year!
We could not be more grateful for the opportunity to attend the Fusion Merchant Retreat way back in October, which was another highlight of our year. For me it was the first time I got to visit Canada and honestly, we were welcomed with open arms. We are so honored to be apart of the Fusion Family. We learned so much about the paint line and business in general. Not to mention we made so many new friends and made some great memories.
From there we were able to celebrate our second anniversary which was a huge success! If you didn't get to attend our event you can read all about it here. We were truly humbled by the response and are extremely grateful for everyone who celebrated with us. I know we say this all the time but we truly could not be where we are without you.
We are so happy you are along for this ride with us. We are grateful for all the blessings 2018 has brought us and we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store, we do have a few exciting things we can’t wait to share with you in the new year, but until then, we are wishing you a safe and Happy New Year!
Alexa, Gabe and Marco
