This week, though—I don't have ANY hesitation in declaring it the best week ever, and that's because of YOU!
2021 PowerSheets launched this week, and together, we’re about to grow some wonderful things across the world.
Because of you, something far better than a product launch happened this week. We have a not-so-secret dream: to see you live out what lasts—and encourage everyone around you to do the same.
This week, that dream started to take root.
Our bright yellow “Oh happy day!” boxes have started shipping out all over the world (to all 50 states plus our nation's capitol, many military bases (thank you for your service!) and 54 countries!). Our shipping team is working hard getting orders out the door—thank you in advance for your patience as they get through them as fast as they can. Fun fact: they have used more than 6,000 feet of floral packing tape to secure your boxes this week already!!
These boxes may appear to be filled with new products, but we know a deeper truth: they’re also filled with hope. In hitting “purchase” this week, you chose courage—courage to start fresh. Courage to dream. Courage to change. Courage to cultivate what you hold dear. After the year we've all had, we have never needed that hope more, and it has never required more courage to believe in it. We're so proud of you, we got you a trophy.
There are 13 women in our office, and together—with you!—we make one strong team. You might even say we're #SquadGoals ;)
You are a community of women that see challenges as opportunities.
You walk the walk—you encouraged us this week, as you do so well!
You think big picture and take small steps.
You are generous.
You are encouraging.
You are capable.
You are passionate.
You are ready!
You, friends, are Cultivators. And we’re so grateful to be on this team alongside you helping every woman know she can think differently. She doesn’t have to do it all. She can walk her unique path and use her gifts to love others well. She can cultivate what matters, right where she is, with what she has.
And now, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at some of our favorite moments from Launch Day and what’s ahead.
After a year of (mostly) being apart, the North Carolina-based team was SO excited to be together in our beautiful new office for Launch Day! We've spent far less time here than we anticipated when we moved in on March 2 (!), but on this happy day, we were so grateful for a space to spread out in and celebrate together.
Of course, we spent most of the day on an all-team video call since we have team members in Colorado, Missouri, Oregon, South Carolina, and Wisconsin, too. Even Irene, who's on maternity leave, gave into FOMO and joined us for the morning! Alexa performed a little Photoshop magic to help us feel closer together :)
We took care of last minute to-dos and prayed over the launch before diving into our individual roles for the day. Our goal on what can be an overwhelming day: to serve you well, one by one, with joy! For us, even if someone doesn’t purchase our products, we hope the experience of visiting our site or interacting with us will open her eyes to think differently and live out what lasts, right where she is.
Friends, thank you! Your kindness and enthusiasm have meant the world to us this week. This is just the beginning for all of us—we'll be with you each step of the way in the year ahead!
