We have some exciting news to share!
As many of you know, this business was started from pandemic boredom. The products we launched in our first few weeks were nice, but not practical and we had no actual plan for what we wanted to do. When we launched the DIY Chai Kit, we saw what a demand there was for unique, handcrafted, personalized gift options. We realized there was something in what we have: people don't order Cardamom & Co. for the tea...they order it for the experience and the convenience of having a high quality gift or product delivered home.
You probably also know that neither of us have ANY business training LOL. It's been kinda a hack job....we learned everything off YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok, and Shopify resources. It worked but there's so much more we can do.
2+ years on, we are excited to finally have an opportunity for some formal training, mentorship, and support to support our business' goals.
A few weeks ago, we learned that Cardamom & Co. has been selected to participate in the American Express Blueprint program.
We will be part of a cohort of 100 business owners selected to take part in a comprehensive mentorship program that will support the next phase of Cardamom & Co.
We have some exciting ideas and this program will really help us build them out.
Stay tuned for more ;)
