The last 8 months have been quite the adventure and I promise I will write more often from now on! I thought long and hard about the concept of email newsletters and wanted to create something that everyone would want to read. From my personal experience, I rarely have the chance to read official newsletters even if I am super interested in the topic.
And that's where I came up with the idea of "How have you been?" As many of you know, I travel a lot and am away from my family and friends most of the time. I can't tell you how excited I get when I receive an email of updates telling me how they have been. And so, I have created the Truli Wetsuits "Hi! How have you been?" newsletter to stay in touch with all of you wonderful people from various beaches, boats and travels. I want to stay in touch with you and this will be my way!
My goal is to send letters to you periodically that you would love to receive from a friend (me!) on what's been happening. I won't go into too much detail, so you can do a skim and scan and be on your way, but please always feel free to write me back and stay in touch! I really do love hearing from you.
Today's letter shows a timeline of some major progressions that have happened with Truli Wetsuits and me in 2015.
I hope you all have had lovely holidays and have big plans for some water play in 2016 - I know I do!
