So, this happened last night!
I have been working so hard since establishing TABITHA + CO™ NC. that I forget to reflect on all that I have accomplished in such a short time. Last night provided a period in time to do just that!
I was humbly honoured to have my company recognized last evening by the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce and to receive the 'New Business of the Year Award' that is sponsored by CBDC- NOBL. Special mention goes out to Jack Kyte and Heather MacCulloch for all of the hard work from behind the scenes to make this annual event a success.
To be recognized with so many other amazing individuals from the Pictou County business and not-for-profit community is humbling in itself. Congratulations to all the other outstanding recipients!
There have been many challenges throughout this endeavour and I would be naïve to think that there won’t be more in the future. It’s the encouragement of all in attendance last evening, my community and clients that keep me forging ahead each day. Anyone can come up with a great concept for a business plan, but it’s the support of many that contribute to making it a success.
I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to accept the award with gratitude if it weren’t for my leather mentor Paul Marcella who is 82 years young this year, team CBDC~NOBL, Nova Scotia Works PC, the community of Pictou County, my friends, my family and most importantly, my clients.
Without this support, the idea for this business model would still be on paper or floating around inside of my busy brain.
Thank you for believing in my dream, continuing to support it, and 'Traveling with Tab'!
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, this year marked the third year, both as a province, and as bereaved parents. Gardens of Grace is the way parents can continue to celebrate the life of a child lost.
TABITHA + CO™ was honoured to support this meaningful initiative for so many families.
"Tabitha and I were school mates and fellow Girl Guides from childhood. I am in awe of the success she has had with her business over the past year, and of the beautiful products she creates. I reached out to Tabitha VERY shortly before Gardens of Grace donated the early loss memory packets to the QEII, wondering if she would be interested in being involved.l She came through with flying colours, contributing stamped heart keychains to the packets. Congratulations, Tabitha, the award is definitely not unwarranted!" ~ Paula Harmon
