We'll be two years old come the 25th February, and I've only got one thing to say about it - wow
When this business started as an idea to sell one white t-shirt walking around a department store, I had no idea two years down the line we'd have expanded from a kitchen table, to a spare room, garage, and second spare room combo, to now having our very own premises here in Lancashire.
We've served thousands of customers all over the world, some as close as the tiny village we started in, and others as far away as Los Angeles and Australia, and everywhere in between.
We've faced challenges most fledgling British businesses would have buckled under the pressure of (I won't mention the C-word or the B-word), but adapted quickly, stuck to our principles and pushed through. I'm a firm believer that hard work, dedication and a positive mindset give you the best chance of success at anything in life, business included.
Over the coming weeks we'll be publishing more blogs and information on the environmental and social impact we've had during the last two years, some updates on the team and our new home, and some non-business related content on climate change and other important social issues.
Finally I just want to say thank you - to every customer that has ordered something from one of our websites, everyone who has left a review (good or bad), everyone who has engaged with any of our content, and all our commercial partners, suppliers, and clients who have had their own C-word and B-word related struggles over the past 12 months.
But mainly I want to say thank you to my team - we are a family-owned and run business here at ZN and none of this would have been possible without the support, dedication, late nights and sacrifice everyone has made over the past two years. Let's make the next two as successful as the last two!
