On November 8, 2017, I posted on Facebook a simple ask if any of my friends or family wanted to try a sample of my Elderberry Syrup. At the time, Elderberry Syrup was a staple in our house for keeping our family healthy, breathing well, and staying out of the doctor’s office. Just a tablespoon a day (teaspoon for the kiddos) had made such a positive impact on our health, I wanted to share this incredible natural remedy with everyone I knew! Well, here we are 5 years later with our Elderberry Syrup (and a complete line of wellness products) in households across the country as a trusted nationwide brand! SO CRAZY! I could write pages and pages about the memories, milestones, victories, and struggles we have experienced from 5 years of growing a business, but for the sake of this blog, I thought it would be fun to ask our team: “Why do you love working at The Elderberry Co?” We have a small team of 11 and most of them have been with me since I went from a one-woman-show to a team of incredible people who share my same mission of empowering families with natural and effective ways to support their immune systems. Here’s what they had to say:
“I love the feeling of being a part of a team of strong women who know how to have fun, work hard, and support each other along the way. I have too many favorite memories to count!” - Kerry
“I love working at The Elderberry Co. because I have formed healthy, loving relationships. I feel loved, supported, and appreciated. I love the day to day changes and surprises, good and bad. Some of my favorite memories are girls’ nights with lots of laughter and all the good and bad of March 2020.” - Christie
“I love working at The Elderberry Co. for the fact that it is family-owned. It’s amazing. It doesn’t feel robotic here. All of us women come as we are. I feel safe and very loved here. My favorite memories are all of the filmed videos of us scaring each other. I love that we all have a good sense of humor.” - Alex
“My favorite memories are, crazy enough, during COVID-19. We were so busy, so chaotic, but so much fun. There were stories being told, laughs being had, and connections being made. All of this happening while we were trying to keep others healthy. It was such a neat thing to be a part of, and I feel proud to have been on this team during such a trying time.” - Kimberly
All in all, I could not have said it any better myself. The Elderberry Co. has morphed into not just being a wellness brand, helping to keep you and your families strong and healthy, but into a family of its own. We come into work every morning eager to connect with each other, sharing a bond uniquely loving and laugh-inducing. I am so proud to have created a company that invites these women to share their strengths and still grow along the way. It has been a trying, but joyful 5 years!
