Go Together Tue, Jan 19, 2016
**Note: my name wasn't an option in the 'Author' drop down tab, so I will now go by the nickname "Bold Apps" ?
It was the first time I went to Kenya, between my Junior and Senior year of college, where I first heard the African proverb, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." While thinking of something to write for my very first loop, this saying popped back into my head. I don't think there's a more apt way to describe the team and company culture here at SlideBelts.
With the recent surge of orders, there's no better saying to keep in mind as we push through the thousands of orders we have in the system. Even as I type this, I can hear Matt (even through my headphones, haha) in the warehouse yelling "we're literally fighting to keep our head above water." That can't be more true, with the most important word there being "we". Going back to the beginning - Brig was the one to come up with the idea, but it wasn't until Michelle was on board that SlideBelts got off the ground. And look at where we are now?! As of mid-January, we have almost already eclipsed our Shopify orders from all of 2015, we are bringing on more employees and we're basically commandeering this entire building. Unreal.
Let's see how much further we can go together.
