2014: An Overview

Over the last few days I have been thinking a lot about all that I want to achieve in 2015 both personally and with BODO, but as well as makingScreen Shot 2013-11-25 at 18.57.35 plans for the future, I have also been going over the highs and lows of 2014 and analysing all that has occurred in the last 12 months.
2014 has been a tumultuous year, a rollercoaster ride with so many highs and lows that it is difficult to go over them all.
At the start of the year, BODO experienced a bit of a setback due to some unforeseen circumstances and investment issues. I had to really tighten the proverbial belt and make some changes to keep the company going in the direction I wanted it to. It was a very difficult start to the year, but we managed to get through it and I feel that the things that I learnt will really help me in the future.

We have achieved a great deal including getting several of our websites up and running, increasing our social media presence and are edging ever closer to the launch of our Shopify website and the sale of our flagship product the BODO Sandal. We have also established an excellent partnership with Barefoot Foundation (Pies Descalzos Foundation) which I feel will go a long way towards helping us to achieve our goals to get our donation sandal out to some of the neediest people in the world and help to make a positive impact in their lives. I am really grateful for all the unfaltering determination and hard work of the BODO team and the loyalty of our supporters. Both our longstanding employees and the external contractors that have been brought into to complete specific projects, have been instrumental in all our achievements this year.
Personally, it has also been a rather incredible year where I feel I have achieved a great deal. Moving into my new home, marrying my beautiful fiancé and becoming a father for the first time have really been earth-shattering experiences. My life has changed in ways I could have never imagined and I feel really optimistic for the future!
