Sometimes we have more to say than Twitter and Facebook will allow. Often our heart is full of so much joy it’s impossible to explain in a mere 140 characters. This is one of those times. We’re going to need a few more paragraphs to tell you about all the goodness we found recently in Arizona.
Who schedules a trip to steamy Arizona in the summertime? We did! And for good reason. We were excited to launch the Jean’s Green line at the Get Sassy Beauty Supply store in Chandler. We knew we would be spending the day at Get Sassy, visiting with customers, answering questions and demonstrating the product. What we didn’t know was just how welcome we’d be and how many wonderful people would make a lasting impression on us.
During the six days we spent in the great southwest, we launched our product, spent time with family, visited a beauty school to perform a demonstration and then did four more demos at beauty salons across the state, including one within an hour of stepping off the plane. We don’t mess around.
One of our most memorable days occurred when we gave a training class at Empire Beauty School in Chandler. It reminded us once again why we travel and why we’re committed to speaking with the public about our product. Our company vision isn’t about stocking jars and making money, it’s about education. We can’t shout it loud enough, “there is a better way, we have it and we want to share it with you.”
There is a great feeling that comes from walking away from a beauty school and know in our hearts we’ve touched lives and changed minds. The students at Empire Beauty were kind and receptive to what we had to say. We know wherever their career paths take them, now they’re armed with a base knowledge about how to straighten hair naturally. As always, our hope is that they will spread the word and hopefully change the mind of a skeptic because they can say, “I saw it with my own eyes.” An empowered student with knowledge of a better way. . . it’s a beautiful thing.
We want to extend our sincere gratitude to the people of Arizona for welcoming Jean’s Green in to their community. We were humbled by your kindness and blessed by the connections and friendships we made while we were there. We can’t wait to come back.
We met so many amazing people and want to thank a few of them by name including Vanissa Young with Get Sassy Beauty Supply store, Tammi Herrion at Z Spot Salon, Tamika McDonald at Balaros Hair Salon, Shani Wilson at Nappy By Nature, Empire Beauty School, Samaj James and Dr. V.A. Joseph who was kind enough to feature us on his Live 2 Produce radio show yesterday.
Thank you, Arizona! For letting us show you what we do, and supporting us!
