Darlybird Launch + Business Advice from Rachel!

The new Darlybird is up and running, and we are SO excited about how excited YOU all are about it! Thank you for being a part of our opening day. If you haven't already, browse around! You will swoon—I guarantee it!

P.S. Free shipping on all orders over $50!

Rachel was invited to share her experiences as a business owner at the Springville Library as the first part of their Small Business Startup Series. So last night, after launching the shop and celebrating this new season of Darlybird, Rachel headed down to share! (I followed her down to support, because girlfriends support girlfriends, right? Yes.)

She was joined by the powerhouse women behind Milk Honey Fine Yogurt and Little Sapling Toys (pictured). I can't remember the exact question asked, but at one point Rachel spoke about the value in surrounding yourself with an awesome team, and about delegating to the members of that awesome team. While building a business, you don't have to do everything. Do the things you want to do (and some of the things you don't, because that's just part of building anything), but you don't have to do everything yourself.

Yes. Amen. Rachel knows how to build a team, and I'm grateful to be a part of that team.

All of this reminds me of a quote from Amy Poehler: "I want to be around people that do things. I don't want to be around people that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people who dream, and support, and do things." Again: amen, sister.


Who is on your team? It doesn't need to be a work team necessarily, but who are the men and women you surround yourself with, to build a life you love? Tell us in the comments! We'd love to hear!
