Today, I made a huge announcement on social media, and I want to share a little more about what it is, why I’m doing it, and what my change in direction means for you.
In October 2014 I started a FB page and started sharing recipes. That evolved quickly to become a social media community of 75,000+, a product range of 80+, a very busy online store, 3 extra staff (incredible, happy, positive humans whom I will forever hold close to my heart) and an actual warehouse. It has been incredibly rewarding and empowering. However, it’s time to make a little change…
We (I) have made the very exciting and emotional decision to close down the part of TILP that sells ingredients and supplies for DIY. In the coming weeks, you’ll notice the website slowly selling out of products, one-by-one.
This change in direction will mean greater inspiration for you. It is in my plans to:
- Create more recipes (physical books, booklets and ebooks)
- Focus on even more education
- Share my top resources with you for supplies, ingredients and packaging (and here it is…!!)
- Create more blogs and free online videos (check out my YouTube channel here)
- Travel more for talks and events (want to invite me to your town or event? Click here!) plus heaps more.
I will still be stocking Naturally Inspired (my insanely beautiful, 375 page, mega-inspiring, earth-changing, planet-loving new book)!
Why am I doing this?
I have a crazy amount of creative energy, it’s something I am proud of and secretly go internally-berserk when it gets noticed, haha! I need the time to showcase it even more than I have done to-date. My energy gets swallowed up by the logistics of running a busy online store and warehouse, even though I have the world’s best staff. I just have way more to give.
I want and need to be a part of something greater – making this planet and the humans living on it healthier, happier, safer.
It is not possible for me to compete with larger companies who have a greater buying power; even though I always prided myself on not compromising on quality, it’s sadly not a top priority for the majority. I want to be able to recommend the amazing businesses/suppliers out there who do it so well. However, the only way I have been able to afford to continue providing free content for you, is to rely on the warehouse to turn a profit, therefore I was stuck promoting my (absolutely perfectly perfect) stock. I am so excited for this slight swing in my path; it brings me closer to my mission and core values, and it’s only good news for you too.
For those of you that supported the product side of TILP, I am forever grateful for YOU (you have no idea how much I adore my supporters!!). Don’t worry, I am going to share my supplier info with YOU, seek and source the best product info for YOU, so you can make the best possible choices for YOU. You will benefit from this change of direction.
Be prepared to see a crazy amount of awesomeness in this space. I’m excited. You just wait!
