Our story; 5th year (2015) Steady growth, strategy and happiness
Everything was going at a steady pace. I couldn’t predict the future, but I could predict more of what we needed. I decided to run the Royal Sydney Show, always one for a challenge, and train up some new staff. Chard and Harriet A joined our team and I was finally relieved from the ever-enduring task of flying to Sydney every couple of weeks. I had been cat sitting, in exchange for accommodation for over a year now.
I started paying myself a manager’s wage and took some time to travel with Gil. Naturally, I was still working part time whilst I was away, but I was able to let go a little and let the team flourish. The week I left, I launched the new website and our new booking system, Insightly. Everything was going so well. I was even interviewed by the talented mindful coach Kate James: http://totalbalance.com.au/inspiring-clients-leena-van-raay/
Then I came home and found out I was pregnant and we built 25 new blender bikes.
