I must say the past one year has taught me so so so much that no paid job could ever give me. The struggles of growing a brand that nobody knew of, no one has heard of and really, just trying to build it up from scratch. We had our good times, we had out challenging times.
The one thing that has made me learn so much was indeed the whole process of managing people. Working in a place where I have a great team dynamic and good chemistry, you'd think it would be easy to re-create that in a new business. But truth be told, unless it is your company, everyone is really just there for the money. One thing that you'd have to do is to make sure you have a goal and target that you want to achieve and make sure you focus and stay on course or otherwise the struggle would consume you overnight.
Well, we survived a year without killing each other so that's good right? Phew! Hehe!
This year, to celebrate Double A's first birthday we wanted to do something a little different and give it back to a charity. So we're planning a charity bake sale this Sunday for everyone! All our previous/existing suppliers are joining hands to deliver cakes onto our counter for all our customers. HOW AMAZING IS THAT!
12 different bakers with almost 30 different types of cakes on the counter this Sunday, it'll be the biggest partnership we have had so far! BE. EXCITED!
All the day's proceeds will be channeled to Red Bubbles (click here!) :)
So come on over to Double A this Sunday everyone!
