Poppy Barley Weekly 16

4-minute read

Poppy Barley Weekly 16 Welcome to Friday! It’s been a whirlwind of travel. I spent last weekend in the Okanagan celebrating the marriage of a dearest friend, flew directly to New York (shot from under the Manhattan bridge, below) and home again to Edmonton. Here on the prairies of Alberta, autumn’s brisk temperatures have arrived. I rode my bike to work yesterday to a fresh layer of frost on the pedestrian bridge. Today, we’re going to start on a sad note. Our beloved, incredible Breanne is leaving us. Tomorrow marks her final day at Poppy Barley {insert lots of tears}. When you’re a team of 2 or 4 or 8 – every person makes a significant contribution to a company. Breanne’s personality, brains, consciousness and commitment set a standard for customer care, events and fun at Poppy Barley. She may be leaving but will forever be part of the Poppy Barley story. Breanne, we’ll miss: everything pink, stories of fake hair, your smile, your patience, your kindness, for being up for anything, your mad excel skills, your bikini-packing skills, always having everything under control… YOU! For your next journey, the whole Poppy Barley team (in Edmonton and Mexico) is cheering and supporting you. Good luck! Here’s what happened this week: Here’s what we’re reading:
  • Solitude and Leadership by William Deresiewiez. It’s long, but so brilliant. It serves as welcome reminder that we do our best thinking by slowing down and concentrating.
  • The Psychological Price of Entrepreneurship by Jessica Bruder. Who can ignore relatable words like “before they made it big, they struggled through moments of near-debilitating anxiety and despair--times when it seemed everything might crumble.”
  • As I spend more time thinking about designing a Poppy Barley retail concept, this article made me think: Retailers Shift Strategy to Court Millennials.
