Both Gayle and I recently finished a book called The Passion Test, by Janet Atwood. It has given us lots to talk about and think about concerning what we consider to be our passions in life.
Obviously, Glynne’s Soaps is a passion for both of us, but not just because it is our business and livelihood. There is a reason that we are passionate about all natural soaps, and if you spend any time with us at all I’m sure you find that out fairly quickly.
There is so much stuff out there that people take for granted. ”If it wasn’t safe, my vet wouldn’t be selling it” ”If it was harmful, you couldn’t buy it at the grocery store.” But that isn’t always the case. Topical flea treatments are concentrated pesticides. Soap (actually most of it is detergent, not true soap) that you buy at the grocery store is full of harmful chemicals. We’ve discussed the whys and hows many times before, so I won’t repeat all of it. But it is the reason we are passionate about all natural. It is safer for you and your pets. We want to make sure that you and your pet live long, healthy and happy (and clean!) lives.
Of course, we have other passions. We are passionate about dalmatian rescue and participating in agility with Wrigley. Gayle is passionate about social media, and Jenn is passionate about participating in triathlons. But our main focus is on creating a quality product that is safe for you, your family and your pets.
What are you passionate about? Leave a comment and let us know. Everyone that leaves a comment, letting us know at least one thing they are passionate will be entered into a drawing to win a free sample stack of Glynne’s Soaps (including shipping). The winner will be chosen on March 3rd.
