I cannot believe another year has passed and Baby Pibu is almost 2 years old! This is that time when I like to take a moment and pause for new year reflections and to plan for the new 2016 year to come.
Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude! First, I would like to take my first moment to be grateful. I am so thankful for the Baby Pibu team that has made this year another growing year for Baby Pibu. What is so amazing about our team is that it is made up of strong women and working moms with a vision to make Baby Pibu as successful as it can be. To these women (you know who you are) I am just so happy, proud and grateful to be working with each of you. As a company of women (for now), I can only hope that we serve as some inspiration to other women and working moms out there with a vision to build something that they believe in. Having that belief and confidence in oneself is one of the key components of success. The other key component is that hard and continuous work which the Baby Pibu team has committed to. Our belief, confidence and hard work has helped us women in the Baby Pibu team lean on each other to make it through both the good and tough times.
This time of year also gets me thinking about how much Baby Pibu has grown in the past year and a half. I remember just having the vision of having an infant skin care line that would help parents by offering the necessary education needed for basic baby skin care and for spotting and soothing common baby skin conditions. Taking that idea to fruition has been an experience like no other and I am still learning so much each and every day. It’s been an amazing ride seeing Baby Pibu born from development to its current state of expansion in boutiques, hotels and online presence. We just love that our best selling items are ones for sensitive skin or eczema-prone skin. Baby Pibu’s Baby Butter, Hydrating Ointment and Bathtime Wash all carry the seal of acceptance by the National Eczema Association (NEA), and we are so proud of this. We are steadily gaining brand recognition through our products themselves, press recognition (thanks to Marque Communication), blog educational content, YouTube videos (like how to give a baby a bath), social media, and by word of mouth from our Baby Pibu fans.
And, to our Baby Pibu fans and supporters, I just want to sincerely thank you for loving and believing in our products! We appreciate your loyalty and you spreading the word about Baby Pibu. A big, big thank you to all of you!
In thinking of the year to come, the Baby Pibu team and I are excited about some new Baby Pibu offerings that we have in mind and are due to come this year- so stay tuned with us! We are excited to share those with you in 2016.
Finally, some last thoughts on reminding each and every one of us
- To take that moment and pause to stop and smell the roses
- To take each day one day at a time
- To take the time to thank our family and friends who are there for us in both good and bad times
- To take the time throughout each day to know we are doing the right thing for ourselves and others
These are some things I remind myself on a daily basis, and I hope these can help you out as well when you need that moment to pause, reflect, and move on.
Happy New Year!
