It's the last day of 2020, a year none of us will ever forget! The year that I decided to found my own brand...
There's so much racing through my mind right now when I look back on the year we've had, but somehow all the joys and moments of hope are what stand out to me the most, and much of that is thanks to you!
Anyone knows starting a brand from the ground up isn't easy. I was prepared for an uphill climb, but nothing could have prepared me for all the road blocks and challenges we were faced with, especially due to the pandemic.
But as we talk internally with the Monday Born team, even in our lowest and most challenging moments, we always say that if we can get through this year, we can get through anything!
What made this year memorable and extra motivating for me was our community's willingness to take a chance on us. We invited you to become part of our product development, our product design, and other operations that would normally be completely done behind closed doors. This, for me, was the single greatest joy in watching Monday Born grow!
For that I want to say thank you. Thank you for lending us your time, your attention, and most of all your enthusiasm for something that I've poured my heart and soul into.
I knew in starting a brand I wanted to do things differently, and you allowed me to do that. One thing I learned from this process is that trust is probably the most important thing to our community; we've done our very best to be transparent about any challenges that came our way and any mistakes we've made. (Alas, no journey is without its hiccups!)
You've been patient with us all along, and beyond that you CELEBRATED our wins right along with us!! I am BEAMING right now just thinking of all the moments you cheered us on, told me "it's ok, Teni, we'll wait, I know it's not easy!", and shouted from the rooftops about how much you love our products.
Simply put, YOU are the best part of this journey. Without you, none of this would have ever materialized and I want to send you my sincerest gratitude for that.
I'm so eager to show you what's coming next for Monday Born in 2021, and I hope you'll continue to navigate this journey with us!
Happy 2021, Monday Born!! I haven’t had a chance to pop in recently, but I keep up best I can on IG and recommend Rebirth and Source (omg...nectar of the goddesses. Literally ordering my next bottle as soon as I hit send) to everyone I know. Y’all have done an incredible job launching this skincare line—during a global pandemic, no less!—and should be so, so proud of your products and yourselves. Cheers to even better things to come in the new year!🥂💖
