New Year, New Balm: A Giddy 2014.


Happy New Years!  First off, I want to start out by thanking everyone for the support you brought our business over the past year.  It was surreal and exhilarating and we couldn’t have done it without our fans, followers, and customers!  As we grow – I think it will give us the means and resources to bring our message of happiness to more people and will allow us to build an even more sustainable business.

Secondly, I want to announce that our present for the New Year is a new Giddy balm that pops out (so it is easier to apply).  You asked so we made it happen!  We’re always striving for improvement so your tips, thoughts, and feedback are always welcome as it helps us get better as a business.  We thank you for that!

Thirdly, I wanted to share some reflections about where we plan to go from here personally and as a business.  For some of us – myself included – New Years, and the holidays in general, are affecting and introspective times where we reflect on our past year, our life, and try to figure out what we did right, what we did wrong, and where it all fits in the grand scheme of things.  It’s entrancing to think about how much happens in a year considering its scale in comparison with the overall scale of the universe.  I think our intrinsic (and extrinsic) notion of this awareness is what prompts New Year’s resolutions.  Our time is short so we want to spend it living “right.”

So what is “right?”  I believe foremost – we should be happy.  That is why I named my company Giddy.  It’s also why we are obsessed with customer service – because I wanted to bring that Giddy feeling of joy to people’s life everyday. I also believe our happiness shouldn’t take away from or negatively impact anyone else’s pursuit of happiness.  That is why we try our best to do things as sustainably as possible – so our descendants who call us ancestors can enjoy the same green earth we do. Past that, it’s sort of up to you what you make of everything and that, in itself, is part of what makes life awesome.

I have a plan for global sustainability that I won’t get into here for the sake of brevity (I’ll explain it over the coming months).  However, I in wrapping things up, I want to announce our Giddy New Year’s Resolution:

We want to build a globally sustainable, waste-free business that brings joy to the lives of people around the world.

Happy New Year everyone!  Let’s all have a very Giddy 2014!
