A message from our Founder, Dana Sicko:
Being a small business owner can be very lonely at times. You have a unique set of problems every day and sometimes there is no one to look to to help solve the problems.
I used to feel this way, in the very beginning when I was my only employee. I had no idea what networking was and I had no idea how to meet other business owners. Fast forward seven years and I couldn’t feel more opposite about being lonely. Through my businesses, I have met some of my best friends and I have an entire new set of friendships that I never would have made. I may not have a water cooler that I can chat around with co-workers, but I have several group chats with other small business owners, work in a co-working kitchen, and work with two teams of amazing women, who I am lucky to call friends and family.
So, I am excited to reflect and celebrate National Best Friends Day! From my girl boss best friends to my best friends from pre-school and first grade, thank you for always being there and reminding I am not alone, not matter what. Now, read on for today's blog post by Leah:
National Best Friends Day gives special meaning to the term “Smaltimore” where Gundalow began – we often hear that it is a small world, and the beauty of our “small” world is that there is so much potential for connections with other people, businesses and community organizations.
To celebrate this friend-filled holiday, we want to help you fuel the ambitions of all of the important people in your life with our Summer Starter! There’s a reason that this package includes two of each juice and shot flavor - to share with your best friend! For $60 you can enjoy seven pairs of Gundalow concoctions – here are some fun ways to share our Summer Starter:
Collaboration really can win over competition! In honor of National Best Friends Day, be sure to thank the special people in your life. Don’t underestimate the power of a random phone call, hand-written note, or thoughtful gesture (like sharing a juice) with a friend. You are never alone and we all get by with a little help from our friends.
