As 2016 comes to a close, I want to thank everyone who made this year wonderful. Founding The Honest Consumer in February 2016 led to an amazing year. I have met some truly incredible people who have welcomed me into a beautiful community advocating for change. I am thankful for every business owner who has taken their time to share their story with me. I am thankful for all the followers of The Honest Consumer. I am thankful for my dedicated friends who believe in my mission enough to be my personal photographers and share my mission. I have learned something different from each and every person. You ALL have played a role in my personal growth and for that I am forever grateful.
This past year The Honest Consumer has continuously pushed me out of my comfort zone. Through my collaboration with mental health social enterprises, this was the first time I felt comfortable talking about my anxiety. In the past my anxiety has held me back from certain experiences, simple things such as driving on the highway or talking on the phone tend to trigger my anxiety. However, I am SO passionate about sharing these stories that I pushed myself to drive to those meetings and chat with new people on the phone. I have been able to overcome a lot and I would not have been able to do it without followers and business owners pushing me to follow my passion. I am so grateful for YOU.
As we enter 2017 I am excited to share more stories and grow The Honest Consumer. Stay posted for new product posts, more giveaways, and promo codes. You are such an important part of The Honest Consumer. Please do not hesitate to reach out. I am always looking for feedback and suggestions. The Honest Consumer is a community and I want to get to know all of you! I look forward to sharing 2017 with you. Happy New Year!
