December is a month that has always been full of celebration for me. It is my birth month, and of course, Christmas and New Year’s Eve call for big celebrations for everyone.
Well this December, I added another celebration to my list: the 1st anniversary of Tutu Mama. Around this time last year, I had a five-month old baby; it was a week before Christmas; and I launched a business. If I had thought about it a minute longer, I would’ve waited until the hectic holidays were over. Instead, I closed my eyes and leaped into the world of entrepreneurship. Now I see that the timing couldn’t be more perfect since the year-end of my business coincides with the end of the calendar year. This makes for one big, happy, reflecting retreat.
My 2011 Review
My first year as an entrepreneur has been exhilarating. Things have come a long way since The First Tutu. Here are a few things I have accomplished in 2011…
- I shipped tutus for babies and little girls, North-America wide.
- I added The World’s Most Meaningful Gift Card and Custom Creations to my Tutu Mama products.
- I exhibited at Once Upon A Belly and the West Vancouver Craft Fair.
- I partnered with Rebecca Sehn, The Land Conservancy of BC, and most recently, Perform Art Studios.
- I was a True Cuddles “Featured Mompreneur“.
- I made BC Family’s list of “Canadian Gifts That Give Hope“.
- I wrote an article for the Yummy Mummy Club.
- I collaborated with Mom Inc Movement, Momcafe Vancouver and Momcafe Tri-cities to provide event coverage by live-tweeting and blog posting.
- I started this blog and developed a love for blogging.
A big hug and kiss to everyone who has supported Tutu Mama. An extra-long bear hug to Ami, my brother, who has walked me through my first year of being an entrepreneur by providing his love, support and encouragement 24/7/365.
