Yes, I had low sales and product failures but let me put things into perspective.
Pola came with my inaanak Suki. She bought her favorite Yema with Pili Spread.
May be an image of 1 person This is one sale, but you know what it is beyond the financials? It is Pola's dedication to us, celebrating every bit of triumph we experience, no matter how small it is.
My LB youth clients dropped by to celebrate me on my first day. They bought their favorite White Mocha with Macadamia and Matcha Spreads. These are but 2 jars, but do you see what it shows? It radiates their passion towards me and my business that whenever I ask for support, they will be the first hands on deck.

My clients who received the jars of spreads in an upsetting condition provided feedback. But instead of putting me down, they helped troubleshoot as to what happened and what we could do better next time.
Bad for sales and branding? Very much so. But it taught us that we are more than just a transaction for them because they are willing to work with us through our challenges.
And you know what the best thing was, Ms. Ela, one of our clients got to meet Uncle Roberto. When I introduced them to each other, Ms. Ela was elated! Seeing them connect with each other was more than enough to keep my heart and soul warm for the day.
This is a reminder to all of us to not take failures at face value. It is an opportunity to tell ourselves,ā€œš—–š—¼š—»š—“š—暝—®š˜š˜‚š—¹š—®š˜š—¶š—¼š—»š˜€, š˜†š—¼š˜‚ š—³š—®š—¶š—¹š—²š—±. š—œš˜ š—ŗš—²š—®š—»š˜€ š˜š—µš—®š˜ š˜†š—¼š˜‚ š—®š—暝—² š—“š—¼š—¶š—»š—“ š˜š—¼ š—±š—¼ š—Æš—²š˜š˜š—²š—æ š—®š—»š—± š—¹š—²š—®š—暝—» š—ŗš—¼š—暝—² š˜š—µš—² š—»š—²š˜…š˜ š˜š—¶š—ŗš—²."
