A note from my heart... I feel like I owe you a bit of an update from my personal perspective.
A few days ago marked the 3 full years of the GP website being online for customers, which was the first time we made money someplace other than the Etsy Shop I had made to test my idea of shipping plants directly From Our Greenhouse to Your House!®. That night was also the first batch of orders that I would need help to package and ship, as everything before that was like 10-50 plants a week so I could do it myself and learn.
This really became apparent when I had the first-ever meetup in Colorado, several states away, and people would walk up just to meet the guy who grew up growing house plants and successfully cultivated a thriving business along the way... that's still mind-blowing. To go from no website to that in under 3 years is pretty insane for just about anyone to experience and quite a LOT for an introvert like myself.
This brand of leadership and focus on individual growth within the company is a large reason why many folks want to work for our company and part of what I believe will continue to set us apart, regardless of the milestones and projects we launch next.
