What a year for KAZARTT and for me! 2023 has been intense, filled with significant events and successes, including an end to the year full of emotions and achievements.
On the way to Spain
Photo taken yesterday, we took the road to Spain: a personal and professional trip. And it is from a co-working in Barcelona that I wanted to take the time to look back on the year 2023 as well as to share with you the objectives for this new year.
And let's start with the most important thing, in my eyes: she said yes!
As an entrepreneur, the line between private and professional life is often very (too) fine. The girl with whom I share my life is also an integral part of the KAZARTT adventure.
She said yes
Marya, the one I can now call my fiancée, gave me the best birthday present! On December 11, she said yes to me from the top of the atomium in Brussels.
I had been preparing the plan from Dubai for several months. And it was thanks to the precious help of the Say-It agency that I organized my request on my birthday. She was expecting a family meal. Successful surprise!
For me, a very stressful moment because I wanted everything to be perfect. But above all, one of the most beautiful moments of my life, and rich in emotion.
I am very happy to have passed this milestone and to commit to a lifetime with this girl who has now been with me for more than 2 years.
But not only her!
Since we have known each other, she has constantly told me that she is not alone. And it comes with a combo. I am very lucky because his 2 sons also accepted me into their family.
The “kinky 2,” as she calls them, are still in Colombia. And one of our big goals for 2024 is to quickly find our nest and bring the whole family together under one roof. Hence our trip to Spain right now.
To end with this beautiful page, I wanted to thank Marya for her contribution to the development of KAZARTT. Marya played a crucial role in the development of KAZARTT, redesigning the Progrès model and handling the sending of nearly 1,000 packages in December.
At the end of the year, she also took care of taking inventory and took care of reorganizing everything. THANK YOU for being part of my personal life as well as the KAZARTT adventure. Thank you for believing in my madness and following me to the ends of the earth.
Now let's move on to another person who was extremely important this year.
Employee of the year 2023
This year 2023 would not have been the same without my Dad! He deserves the official title of Employee of the Year! Because it was he who took care of all the logistics during the first 11 months of 2023. More than 1,000 packages that he prepared and sent.
For his Christmas, I gave him this symbolic frame.
Because packages... we sent them!
And we took the time to remember the beginning of the year. Where we started very (very) humbly: he started by inserting your contact details on the Post Office or Mondial Relay website. Then, he printed the labels on A4, cut them out and glued them to the envelope using his Pritt glue pot 😂.
Fortunately, during the year, we became more professional: I integrated the Mondial Relay solution on the site, allowing you to choose your own delivery method as well as your relay point. And I also invested in a label printer, saving us money on Pritt glue and wrist pain.
