New Year, New Possibilities

Dec 31, 2016

What is your wish for 2017? If you’re like us here at Mason Jar Lifestyle, you’re hoping we don’t lose any more of our favorite music artists or actors. It’s been a rough year for a lot of us in many ways, but it’s the perfect time to reflect on 2016 and look ahead to all the possibilities of 2017.

2016 was a banner year in the world of Mason Jar Lifestyle. We hit some pretty big milestones, and we could not have done it without you, our loyal customers. Here are a few 2016 highlights:

-We had our first anniversary in June.

-MJL moved from a home-based office to an office/warehouse space. We experienced tremendous growth and needed more space to get all of you your orders!

-Not only did we need more space, but we needed help getting your orders out. We hired some picking, packing, and shipping experts. Without these wonderful ladies, we could not get you all your orders in the super speed we strive for!

-As we grew in 2016, we wanted our product line to grow in step. We added some fun and practical stainless steel accessories along with our silicone koozies and regular mouth silicone drinking Lids in all sorts of fun colors.

-These new products must have been winners, because we outgrew our current office/warehouse space and will be upgrading to a bigger space in 2017!

-We also hired another shipping specialist to our team, and we are so happy to have him.

-And then….yours truly was hired to ramp up the social media and blogging!

-Towards the end of 2016, we continued to keep it fresh and added (my personal fav) the lemon yellow to the silicone product line-up.

To say 2016 was a fabulous year for us here at MJL is truly an understatement! We are so appreciative of our customers and our new shipping team for making this such a great year!! So give yourselves a big pat on the back because you all deserve it!!

Looking ahead to 2017 is just as exciting for us. We’ve chosen to focus on a word for 2017, as opposed to a specific goal or resolution. You may be asking yourself, “what’s the difference?!?!”. Well, choosing a word helps us to simplify what it is we want to always be focusing on in 2017. We’ve also all personalized what that one word means to us and how it makes us feel. Our word is GROWTH.

Growth to us means feeling like we are shipping efficiently, adding relevant product lines, adding more staff to accommodate for new growth, making sure tenured staff is happy, the website and content is relevant, social media followings continue to increase, and so much more (but you get the point). “Growth” is more than just our word; it is our feeling and what we are projecting onto 2017!

Here are a few things to look for in 2017

-We will be moving into our new building in the first half of 2017.

-We will be having some local Colorado pop-up shops in the new year.

-And of course some fun new product additions!

We are very excited to continue to grow Mason Jar Lifestyle in 2017 and beyond! We will keep you updated and informed as new things pop up…literally!! Please feel free to comment or email us if there is something you’d like to see in 2017.

Happy New Year from all of us at MJL, xoxo
