As summer winds down and we get ready to send our kids back to school (and get back to some sort of routine ourselves) we can't help but look back over the past year and appreciate what WIP has given us and our families.
Having been in business together now for 6 1/2 years we have experienced both the highs and lows of owning a small business. Thankfully the highs out weigh the lows, but even through the tough times we continue to enjoy working together. Many people find it surprising that after spending hours together all week at "work", we then choose to spend so much time together outside the gym. The truth is, we are friends first. A key to our successful working relationship is remembering that (it helps that our kids are friends and our husbands...yup, you guessed it they are friends too)!
We love what we do and more importantly our families love what we do. Both our husbands and kids are so supportive and proud of what we have accomplished, that it makes it all that much sweeter. And at the end of the day, that's what it's all about.
So as we sit on the beach for our last summer hurrah, we want to say thank you. Thank you for making WIP a successful small & locally owned business. Thank you for allowing us to financially help support our families. Thank you for allowing two friends to grow a business together and love what they do!
