Now seems like just the right moment to get a little reflective. We've taken the last few weeks away from work (mostly) + there's nothing like a bit of space to reset + refocus. We've come a long way in 12 months with a lot of hard work, tears, mistakes, wins + luck along the way.
It's brought us closer as sisters (literally, we've seen each other loads!) + given us a growing sense of confidence in business. It's been a year of connecting with other small business owners, finding support + comfort in knowing our struggles are pretty normal really. 2019 was also the year we began donating to Beam on behalf of our customers, this is a huge achievement for us both as a new business + well, as people who give a sh*t.
Last year a LOT happened. Here's our 2019 in numbers...
1 x trip to China
1 x new office
1 x Becca speaking at the opening of the Facebook HQ in Sydney
2 x page spread in Lunch Lady Mag!
2 x Jess flying to Australia

What's in store for next year?
We are starting it with Jess heading to Australia then both of us flying to visit our factory in China. We're celebrating our Dad's 60th with a bunch of family in Tuscany (can't wait!!). We're getting to launch some new products... hopefully growing our team a little more + spreading the mustard even further afield! The rest... we shall see what 2020 has up it's sleeve for Mustard!
