Today, I wanted to take a moment to thank you.
YOU, the artisans and makers that put your love and passion into every product you create. YOU, the entrepreneur who spends every waking moment dreaming about your small business, thinking of new ways to enhance your client experience. YOU, the shop owner who carefully curates, packs, and ships the products you offer to customers across the world. YOU, the conscious brand who uses your business as a tool to make this world a better place. YOU, who puts mindfulness, sustainability, and ethics into every decision you make. YOU, who have chosen to hire Voyage + Heart to create thoughtful and bespoke imagery that attracts your dream clients. YOU, who have taken a chance on me, put your complete trust in me, and given me the privilege of sharing your beautiful and unique story with the world. YOU, who follow, like, comment, message or otherwise encourage me. YOU, who give me the opportunity to work, to practice my art, my passion, and spend every day doing what I love.
Your ongoing support never ceases to amaze me, and I am eternally grateful for you all.
When you support a small business like my own, you’re making a larger impact than you know! When you outsource your product photography, you’re helping me support my family. You’re allowing me to contribute to the finances and pay the bills. You’re putting food on my table. My husband can go to the eye doctor when he unexpectedly tears his last set of contacts. And I can afford the tools I need to manage my anxiety.
You aren’t lining my pockets, paying for a vacation home, or for extravagant travels around the world.
When you support a small business, you’re supporting a dream, yes, but it’s so much more than that. You’re helping a family to live humbly, with less concern and worry. And for that, there aren’t enough words of thanks.
