I get by with a little help from my gang

This week, I have been hella sick... and not just for a day or two, for a whole week! 7 days of feeling lethargic, cruddy, cranky, and blerghy. (so blerghy, in fact, that you may have noticed we didn't even send a newsletter last week)

We've had many phases of business at Outlaw Soaps, but many of them have just been me 'n' Russ, stickin' it out as best we can.

For the past few years, though, we've grown our team to the point that if one of us has to go down for the count, Russ and/or I can do it with the full knowledge that Elysia, Marci, Stacie, Amy, Jennalee, Garwood, Amy2, Arrow, and Robert are still keeping the trains on schedule, the orders shipping out in ship shape, and production running at full steam ahead!

As a first-time CEO, knowing that we've created the kind of company that smart, good, responsible, awesome people like to work for is a really fulfilling feeling.

Thanks to you, our awesome customer, for making it possible to bring such great people on board. We literally couldn't do it without you.

In love & cleanliness,
Danielle
