So much has happened in the past few years. I read back on this blog, and life has made shift after shift. I’m not who I was when I posted last; considering when that was, that’s a very good thing.
My last post was June 17, 2022. Man, was that a rough time? Since then, things have gotten better. In October of 2021, I moved back to New York. I think you can say I *ran* back to New York. I had a backpack and some luggage full of things I knew I would need to get life started here. I was scared but determined to fight for my life and start again where I was most comfortable, the Lower East Side.
Here we are in September of 2023, and I’m finally settled in my home. I don’t have anywhere to go or anyone to be but who I am at this very moment.
I read this blog, and I feel a little disconnected. I’m not an artist who glamorously flits between NYC's bustling metropolis and New Mexico's mountains, designing patterns for shoes and scarves. I’m not that scared widow, running raw and finding my way. Life is pretty simple now.
I’m just the COO of a really cool company.
I don’t talk much about Skipti because, for a while, it was quick-changing. We had clients we couldn’t publicly talk about and opportunities in the pipeline that were delicate and exciting, but even this has become just solid and stable.
I don’t know who reads these posts, but for you - the one reading right now - Skipti is really freaking cool. Personally, I am a minimalist. For me, it’s not about having a cold and sterile living space; it is about living purposefully and only having what you need. Skipti was born from this vision. Why own something when you can have it when you need it and then give it back when you’re done?
We are a powerhouse team that has built some technology to provide a turn-key circular commerce solution that inspires consumers to live deliberately and sustainably.
Suppose we can inspire the community to live deliberately by powering the circular economy. In that case, we serve a world that values experience over possession, repair over replacement, and quality over quantity while reducing production for obsolescence.
We aren't the only ones who think this is cool. Home Depot cold-called us after stumbling on our site, and we began working with them this year. We power sports companies, e-bike demos and rentals, ski shops, and other professional services that require a physical product to accompany the experience.
The increase in global circularity processes will not only impact our climate but will give us all the freedom to experience more with less, and Skipti provides businesses with an easy way to adopt circular practices, diversify revenue streams, and find new ways to interact with their customers.
How about that for positivity in the workplace?
Not to mention, the job is pretty fun.
