I would love to hear what you are most thankful for so go ahead tag us in your social media, we love interacting with you guys.
I created Thavin & Marcob in the living room of my rental house a few years ago. I put my heart and soul into every aspect. I love every nook and cranny of my company, but there are a few thing that I love more so than others.
Here are my top 5!
I spent forever and a day trying to create the perfect name for my bright lighted idea. The name Thavin & Marcob came to me while I was searching. In case you don't know, our name is a mash up of all five of my children's names.
Here's the breakdown..
Th- Our Youngest contribution
Av- Our 4th child's contribution
In- Is from my business partner
&- Stands for my husband and I
Mar- is from my first born
Cob- is from our second born
That's what I used to create the name
Thavin & Marcob
Unique is such a strong stand alone word.
I love that Thavin & Marcob fits with the word Unique.
I love the idea that the fashion choices I make with in Thavin & Marcob
have the ability to make a difference To others.
Whether it's a high end 100% cashmere scarf that was created by disabled weavers,
or a 1.00 Fair Trade Friendship bracelet. Both of these products mater to someone and to the world.
If I want to support a manufacture who is running a No Waste Manufacturing Plant..
then guess what I can do that at Thavin & Marcob.
If I truly don't care about the impact my purchase makes and I just need something to wear for my date night with my absolute amazing husband then yes, I can do that too!
I love the diversity and the acceptance that we are all uniquely different individuals.
As many of you know
I'm not the only owner of Thavin & Marcob. The kids all own a little piece of it. I am the founder and one of the CEO's. Our company is entirely family owned. We discuses everything from promotions to who's turn it is to clean the windows.
The community support has always amazed me.
I'm humbled by it, I'm truly honored by those who knew us when we were first starting out and we only had a landing page and we didn't know what we were doing and my blog post from that time where horrible! I know it, you know it, and yet you still encouraged my with love to keep going. to not give up. Those people are what kept me going when I got tired , those people are why I keep growing, why I'm still doing what I do. I'm always looking for better ways, a way to grow, to learn something new that will benefit all of us. And truly I have the community to thank for that drive.
Starting Thavin & Marcob has taken me beyond my comfort zone time and time again.
The experience of that is one that I can never replace. Even today I'm stretching out my arms ready to embrace the new, to take chances, to put myself out into the world that I may not have done if not for the fact that I started Thavin & Marcob.
Thavin & Marcob is a place where you are celebrated for being you!
