Today I celebrate 1 year of being employed by the most amazing company in the world, AppleCheeks. I am so incredibly thankful for even getting the chance to work for a company I truly love and believe in, but a whole year? That is incredible. I consider myself extremely lucky.
“How did you get your job?” – I’m asked this a lot. In the cloth diaper world my job is considered a “dream job” and believe me, it is! So, I’ll tell you.
I would like to thank a little app known as Instagram! I was, and still am an obsessed photo taker and poster on IG. AppleCheeks was one of my very favorite things to photograph, especially on little bums! It was August 2012 when I was asked by the beautiful Ilana co-owner of AppleCheeks to become an Ambassador for the company, a few months later she told me she had a proposal for me. I was offered the position as customer care… Of course, I took it!
My job I get to do from home – Most people don’t know that, they assume I live and work in Montreal at HQ but I don’t I’m all the way in Toronto. So really, it’s the best of both worlds. I get to work from home in my pajamas (if I want to!) while being with my kids AND doing my dream job! I absolutely love helping people with their issues – fit, laundry, stripping you name it! It brings me great joy to know someone who may be having a small issue that may be very frustrating to them but a small little fix that they hadn’t even realized and I get to help with it! Awesome, right?
Although I work for the business from home, the company is very good at keeping me in the loop about all the goings-on from within their office. The HR department even sends me pulse surveys for employee engagement from time to time to make sure that I still feel like part of the team! Employee surveys are a great way to gather feedback from your employees and they definitely help the company that I work for. The survey results are used to make changes that get results and boost employee morale.
Anyway, I think my employers are fantastic so I am doing a wonderful giveaway on my Instagram. I am giving away 3 little bundles in winners choice of size and color! So, if you love AppleCheeks and would really like to snag a new little bundle (cover and insert) check me out on Instagram for you chance! The giveaway is running for a whole week and its open to EVERYONE!
I will do a blog post at some point this weekend all about AppleCheeks so those who are new and thinking about using them can get a little look into my world and why I love them so much!
Do you cloth diaper? Why did you chose to, or not to?
