Last month, we were sponsors for an amazing event, Rock n' Restock CLE, which raised money for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. The September 17th event was held at a new venue, FWD Day + Night Club, on the East Bank of the Flats. The event featured Tyler Reid rockin' on his guitar with his band and opened with toe tappin' Bobby St. Vincent.
I remember nervously pulling my car up not knowing what to expect from our first event where we would set up a vendor table and show our tees to strangers. How would we be received? Would there be a lot of people? How would people react to us? To our shirts? To our brand?
My first thought was how beautiful everyone was. Such a great looking crowd! Our host, Al from Stasek Real Estate Experts was awesome and definitely knows how to throw a great party. We came to adore Brandy from Brandy Bright Media. What a real sweetheart! She kept an eye on us and made sure that we were successful throughout the night! And there was Orville from Orville McEachron Photography. Seeing his photos the days following the event - wow! They just blew my socks off! So beautiful how he captured each moment of the night.
Throughout the night, it was surreal to hear our company being announced on stage from radio personality, LeeAnn Sommers. The lights, the music, the crowd, the excitement - it felt like something I could get used to. And of course there were the customers. To each person who came to our table and supported us by purchasing our unique tees, we appreciate you. Todd and Lisa, Brandy, Denise, Angela, Kristen, and so many others whose names we didn't catch... you are all so important in these beginning stages of our company's growth.
Everything you do in life begins with first steps. One foot in front of the other. The same goes for goals and success - you can't begin at your goal's end; you need to take steps to get to that success. It is through the lessons you learn and the people you meet along the way that help lead and guide you to your goal. It is in the moment to moment of who you are becoming, where you will find your success at the finish line.
