One Year Later
One Year Later
When we launched Essential Soap Maker a year ago we had no idea where our dream would take us. A year later, as our original product photos pop up as “ 1 year ago” on Google Photos we can’t help but reflect on how much has changed.
A year ago we were still suffering from a miscarriage I had had two months prior. We were grieving our loss as we stumbled through the holidays. We were continuing to pursue fertility treatments. Somehow, we found it in ourselves to devote what energy we had to something we were passionate about - improving our fertility and spreading awareness to others.
A year ago we were scientists. We researched the most natural and beneficial products, and we played with our formulas endlessly until we got it just right. We celebrated when we knew we had a new bar we were proud to share with our audience.
A year ago we started getting our first sales. From that time we’ve grown to fulfill orders as large as 600 bars at a time, and as we approach 2020 were putting together our plan to be able too fulfill orders in the thousands!
A year ago we joined instagram not knowing all of the incredible people we’d meet in the infertility community and the small business community. True friendships have been created through this platform and in sharing our product we have been blessed with support.
Last, and certainly not least, a year ago we weren’t sure we would ever have another child. Today, as I write this, I’m seven months pregnant (for those of you who follow us social media this is no surprise!) We celebrate this pregnancy, we celebrate ESM and we celebrate all of you! Thank you for coming along for the ride!
