I wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to you, our fan and customer for helping EasyTots have such a fantastic 2018. If you have 2 spare mins then I’ve shared some of our highlights in this short video. A reflection of the Easytots year. We owe our customers the world – Thank you.
We are now only in our third year of business and it’s both humbling and amazing to see how far we have come since we launched our very first product in 2016.
I have pledged a personal commitment to continue to add new quality new design products to the EasyTots range and my ultimate vision is for EasyTots become a one stop shop for mums to shop for ‘All things weaning’ within the next 1-2 years.
It’s a big plan, but bit by bit we are getting there.
I think we can all relate to how fast paced life is sometimes, and how many challenges we need to overcome. Fitting in being a mum and running a business is difficult at times, but 100% worth it. The years seem to whizz by so fast recently, and before we know it our babies are not babies anymore. Each stage they are at is wonderful but its so nice to reflect back. That’s why I’ve tried to spend some time reflecting on the positives from this year by putting together this note.
If you are anything like me you’ll agree that as women tend to focus on all the things that haven’t been done, or all the things that still need to be done, and give too much time to feeling like we should be dong more or better. I’m learning to celebrate the small and sometimes big achievements I’ve made along the way.
The highlight of this year for me was for my story and journey so far to have been recognised in the 2018 We are the City Rising Star awards. It astounded me that my story received so many pubic votes and caught the Judges attention.
I’m a normal mum, now aged 42 who simply works hard for her dream, just like thousands of other mums like you across the UK. I haven’t given up when things have felt too hard, I simply wan’t to be the best version of myself that I can be, to my family, friends and my customers. Integrity goes a long way I believe.
This year we made our national television debut on Channel 4’s ‘Buy It Now’ in May; I presented at the 2018 International Business Festival in June; and won ‘Female Entrepreneur of the Year’ at WeAreTheCity’s Rising Star Awards in July. In September, EasyTots was recognised as North West Best Baby Weaning Accessories Provider in the 2018 Parent and Baby Awards before going on to win the MIB ‘Retailer of the Year’. We have also been shortlisted for the 2019 MadeFor Mums award
I feel really fortunate to see our brand grow over these past few years, having initially been inspired in to baby product design through my own daughter Kiera, whose messy ways inspired our original EasyMat!
Supporting families – especially those in need – is something that’s really close to our hearts. That’s why we donate all non-faulty customer returns to our local foodbanks and have given three cartons of saleable products to the Giving World Christmas Appeal, who re-distribute surplus goods to vulnerable families and those that live below the poverty line.
As 2019 approaches I’m excited to look forward a short two weeks ‘off grid’ at the beginning of January to help me focus on the year to come and take a break. Then on my return I am excited to announce we will have 2 new products ready to showcase to you!
