Happy Chinese New Year!
2016, the year of the fire monkey, was a big unpredictable adventure. What did we accomplish?
- Completed a successful Kickstarter campaign
- Built a supply chain from scratch (wow)
- Made some amazing travel t-shirts and a hand-made journal
- Launched our e-retail site
- Made a beautiful LookBook
- Partnered with inspiring travelers, photographers, and entrepreneurs
- Outfitted a lot of happy people in our gear which is the best part of this whole journey!
Doing all this with a small team required some serious monkey skills:
According to the Chinese zodiac, monkeys are nimble and clever. Being a monkey last year wasn't easy, but nothing worth achieving ever is.
Ok, what about the Rooster?
2017 is the year of the Rooster. If we were all Roosters, the trains would run on time, loyalty would rule, and we would all be hyper motivated to achieve our goals. Rooters pride themselves on:
What does that mean for us at Anywhere? Other than trying to be on time for our meetings, we're getting personal, sharing more about what we do every day, the people behind our vision, and why we wake up early feeling excited about the future.
