You may have noticed that we’ve been a bit quiet recently… well, that’s because we’ve been trying to work out what to do! While we absolutely love the Box Happy community and sending a little bit of happiness out to you each month, we’re having to really practise what we preach, do a little self-love and do what makes us happy. So, we have come to the hard decision to close Box Happy.
We started Box Happy with such good and exciting intentions and were so carried away by the idea and our enthusiasm that we kind of forgot about the amount of time required to start a business. Even under perfect circumstances starting a new business is a huge time commitment and gamble… as they say, only an Entrepreneur will work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40.
We didn’t have perfect circumstances (new baby and house renovation for Hannah, and new job and single motherhood for Emily) and we gave it our all but we just don’t have the time to put in what it deserves. Life and other commitments have made it impossible for us to keep doing it and keep our sanity.
We’re really proud of what we have achieved in such a short time - selling over 100 boxes pre Christmas in just a month, was huge for us - but it nearly killed us boxing them all up with a 3 week old baby!!
So, it’s with a heavy heart that we say 'Good Bye’. We sent the March Boxes out recently, so we hope you are enjoying them, and shortly you should have a notification that we have paid you back for future boxes that you will not receive. If you’re looking for something to replace it with - the Buddy Box by Blurt Foundation is a really nice alternative!
I guess the only thing for us to say is THANK YOU! Thank you for your support, for your kind words and recommendations, and for generally being onboard so early on in a new business’s life. We love and appreciate each one of you. And remember, as Emerson says - Life is about experiments. That’s how we feel too.
