All I wish is to get the kids back to school in a safe manner; I’m not teacher material.
2021 – a different year.
At eicó we have, for a number of years, been working tirelessly with the introduction of a better product which is healthier and more environmentally friendly.
We have, after many years of working with limited success, finally started to see a significant consumer base who want and care about health, sustainability and quality. We hope that this year, most consumers will start to act on this need for real health, sustainability and quality. 2021 will be one for the good guys.

In one word: RELIEF! I think this covers a multitude of areas. Relief from the anxiety caused by not knowing when we’ll get our vaccines, or see our families. Relief for struggling businesses and families who have had to juggle home schooling and full time jobs. Financial relief for the countless people who have lost their jobs and mental relief for those who have been pushed to the brink by this pandemic.
Saying that, some of my happiest moments took place during the ‘covid year’. I’ve been extremely proud of my hard working team and clients who have pivoted and adapted so well, and look forward to feeling equally proud as I see the world bounce back. And whilst I miss the many friends I haven’t been able to spend time with, I hope that the deep bonds I’ve developed with my crew on the ground continue to develop.

Ahh… the Year of the Ox! This year, I am hoping for more balance and growth. Growth seems to always happen, so I don’t know why I am wishing for that – growing older (sadly!), wiser, more experienced – but I suppose I am seeking more personal growth. As for balance, I feel like some weeks I have this nailed (*high fiving myself*) and then the next week it all goes to the S#$%. But that’s the ride of entrepreneurialism right?
