Each year I reach out thoughtfully to my network extending my warmest greetings and well wishes to you, and all your loved ones during the festive season.

It’s been a year of great introspection, learning opportunities and lessons in gratitude.

As you may know, Shopin is growing with new talented folks. We work relentlessly to bring a renaissance to the world of retail.

It’s a humbling experience to be out there fighting for what I believe in, and seeing incredible folks rise to the challenge alongside me every day.

Here is some of what I’ve had the gift to reinforce within myself:

  • Empathy, compassion, perseverance are classic virtues, that know no seasonality;
  • Strength without perception is spiritually and functionally useless;
  • In challenging times, one’s ability to perceive is tested more than ever. Your true friends and supporters emerge to hold the flame of truth up high and illuminate your path;
  • One should seek the truth oneself. It is a time honored tradition to take up this quest;
  • The people you’ve invested care, time and capital in, are gifted with the opportunity to show their strength of character;
  • The ones dedicated to the mission will crawl over barbed wire to capture the flag (or be smart enough to bring a thick blanket to smother the barbs);

I urge you to take time to slow down for a heartbeat, and therein-between the beats find the stillness and warmth to spend time with your loved ones, or listen with care. These are sacred moments available to you, if you choose to do so.

Breathe in your challenges. Exhale care, truth, patience and generosity. (also brush your teeth😁).

Even though the world tends to slow down at this time of year, we’re still pushing forth, dedicated to the vision of a retailer federation unified through our universal shopper profile.
