Thank YOU For an Amazing 2022
As the year comes to a close, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported my business. Starting and running a business as a teenager is not an easy task, but with the support of my family, friends, and customers, I've been able to make it a success.
I want to specifically thank my parents and family for their unwavering support and sacrifice. Without them, Ava's Pet Palace wouldn't be where it is today. Their guidance, encouragement and support have been invaluable to me.
I also want to thank my amazing partners (you know who you are!), who have been a constant source of inspiration and motivation. Their ideas, insights, and expertise have helped me take my business to the next level.
As I look forward to the new year, I am excited to continue growing Ava's Pet Palace and achieving my goals. I'm also looking forward to the new opportunities and challenges that 2023 will bring.
I hope everyone has a happy and successful New Year, and I look forward to continuing to bring you the best dog and cat treats possible from Ava's Pet Palace. Thank you for your continued support!
Attended My First Big Expos
Attending trade shows and expos as a teenager can be an exciting and valuable experience. Being an exhibitor at the Global Pet Expo, Black Women's Expo, and SuperZoo in 2022 allowed me to showcase my business to a wide audience of retailers, distributors, and pet owners.
The Global Pet Expo was particularly special for me because the age limit was lowered, which allowed me and other young entrepreneurs to attend. This was a great opportunity for me to connect with other industry professionals and make valuable contacts. I was thrilled to learn that many of the retailers and distributors I met at the expo now carry my organic and all-natural dog treats.
The Black Women's Expo in Chicago was another great opportunity for me to connect with pet owners and showcase my treats. It was amazing to meet so many dog and cat moms, and hear their feedback on my products.
Lastly, SuperZoo in Las Vegas was an amazing experience. It was great to meet more retailers and distributors, and learn about the latest trends in the pet industry. I was able to connect with many industry professionals, and I look forward to growing those relationships in the future.
Attending these expos has been a great opportunity for me to grow my business and reach new customers. I am excited to continue attending these expos in the future and expanding my business even further. I hope my experience will be helpful for other young entrepreneurs looking to attend trade shows and expos.
