Starting Pretty Knotty has been a nine year journey full of beautiful, fulfilling days and many dark days too (these will be stories for some other time... we promise).
Throughout all of these emotional ups and downs, our friends and family have stood by our sides.
Today we want to publicly recognize all of the bad-ass supporters that we've had in our corner since Day 1. We couldn't have done it without you!
To our families - our spouses, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, and sisters - you are our rocks. We love you all.
To our teammates - Deb and Tom Howard, Odalis and Jessica Jimenez, and Annie Nicholas - your creativity has brought the vision of PRETTY KNOTTY to life. Thank you for sharing your talents.
To our partners - our manufacturers, Salve Regina University Center for Business Outreach, New York Law School PTO Patent Clinic, and Suffolk University Intellectual Property & Entrepreneurship Clinic - your knowledge and expertise have helped us create the innovative, durable products we imagined. Thank you for volunteering your time and experience.
To our friends - ...especially Kristen Ouellette, Michele Eberhart, Shannon and Caitlin Burke, Amada Fiala, Jamie Hill, Heather Kurtzman, Brigid Nee, Maddie Burke, Thary Phann, Jaime Messina, Mary Valen, Ashley Matejka, Breawna Power Eaton, and Mary Mayhew - you've always been there to support us. Thank you for testing our hair ties, sharing your thoughts, posing for photos, and helping however you could along the way.
There will be future posts highlighting some of the outstanding friends, family, teammates, and partners who have helped us create PRETTY KNOTTY's FIT TIES, but for now, we would just like to say thank you! Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
We are grateful to you all!
Hair Up, Game On,
Shelly and Jacob
