Sometimes you get buried in the day-to-day craziness of building a business, and you don’t have the chance to personally interact as much as you would like with the very customers you are building the products for. You also do not get to spend as long as you would like talking about the very real people our customers are helping or the curriculum we worked so hard on for the Mariemae Business School classes.
In case you haven't heard, we have partnered with two other socially conscious companies to host a two day pop-up shop this weekend in Dallas! We are launching over 15 new products at the event and will run several event specials. Please see below for the press release with all of the details. Should be quite an event, and we would love to see you there!
After years of dreaming about it and months of preparation, the first Mariemae Business School is here! This Sunday, Tara Clapper of No41 and I depart for Rwanda to spend two very busy weeks with her team outside of Gisenyi. Before we leave, I wanted to give each of you a little glimpse into what we will be covering while we are there.
Check out our post on expressing gratitude on the Enrou blog today as part of their #betteryoubetterworld challenge! (Link in their profile)
Figured I would break my "no phone" on vacation rule for a good cause 💕 Here's my #withoutshoes pic for @toms!
Thanks so much to everyone that came out to the first "Mingle with Mariemae" tonight in College Station and to @erica_hightower for hosting! Your purchases enabled us to provide another 33 hours of business school for our class of 2015 in Rwanda! Thank you!
Working on an upcoming blog post regarding expressing #gratitude. What helps you to be more intentional about expressing your gratitude? How can you work to foster a company culture that embodies this?
Happy Saturday! Counting down the days until we head to the beach for a MUCH needed sanity break. Can. Not. Wait. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Write with purpose
For every product purchased, Mariemae will provide an hour of business training to a woman entrepreneur in a developing market.
