Minku is six this month and to celebrate, I’m taking the week off. Last year, when this being that has brought so much joy to people’s lives turned five, I celebrated in a different way: a pop-up event in Lagos showing the new collection, flanked by friends, and stuffing myself with Minku-branded red-velvet cupcakes.
So just as Spanish schools have this week off leading to Easter, I am going to take the week off, too. We will watch the Chinese GP on Sunday morning and go running along the beach. We will catch up on movies (Trainspotting, I haven’t seen, can you believe? :)) I will try to do nothing during the week while my <3 works towards his lurking deadline. Well, maybe I will write about music.
Thank you to everyone spurring Minku along on this journey. People are so proud to associate with it, to wear Minku; I keep getting happy emails; I’ve always wanted to do work where I could delight people, and not be too far-removed from sharing in their delight. Through Minku, I feel fortunate to do that. This blog is another unexpected hit, where knowledge I share on lean startups, judging leather quality, hot-stamping leather, etc, helps thousands of entrepreneurs, leather goods consumers, and hobbyists respectively make informed business and buying decisions.
I don’t know what ideas I’ll return with on the 17th of April when I get back to work. I know I’ll be excited and ready to keep going.
