One Year Down....Happy Anniversary

Sole Savers is celebrating their 1 year anniversary all week long! Why is this great? Because they are sharing this celebration with you. Only those who read the entire blog will have the insider information -- aren't you lucky! 

When the owners were asked about this first year in business, they were gushing with answers. They both pride themselves on holding on to the core values of their business -- philanthropy, community, support, and dedication. In this first year, Sole Savers has given to CHD, Breast Cancer, Hip Hip Whoray, We Can-Cer vive, Love Life Foundation, and others. They have stood solidly on their mantra, Every Sole has a Soul. 

"After 1 year of business, we are still sponges. We are learning something new every single day. One year means that we have enough insight to encourage others to start and go for it! That is something that we both believe. You just have to go for it. Create a plan and know that it will absolutely change. But, you need a plan so that you create some sort of direction for yourself. And, honestly, so that you don't just jump at every single thing that pops into your head," says Melodie. 

Why do you enjoy this business? "I honestly enjoy it because I get to work with my daughter. She's always been a person who jumps and takes risks. Me, not so much. I had her early in life, and my priority was to provide and protect. I made very conscious decisions so that I could show her that nothing was impossible. In doing that, I think she really took that and held tightly to it. I am glad that she did, we probably wouldn't be celebrating a year had she not," says Teresa. 

Do you think that the business has changed you all? Teresa: "Absolutely! This business has made us both want to connect more with people and community. Melodie isn't shy, but I can be at times. Of course, our family and friends would disagree with me being shy, but I truly am. She pushes me to speak and create relationships. The foundation that I gave my children, as they were growing up, was that we are to love people. We visited nursing homes and the sick and shut in. During holidays, with their own money, they purchased gifts for those less fortunate. So, the business didn't change our foundation and our principles, it actually increased them and our capacity to do what we love to do -- give back. It has been a blessing."

What's next for Sole Savers? Melodie: "What's next? Well, we launched t-shirts today, which we are really excited about! We would love to have a retail partner -- Hey DSW, Nordstrom Rack, Neimans Last Call, Saks Off Fifth, Nasty Gal (we love you Sophia) we would love to work with you. Can we chat? (she laughs) No honestly, we would really love to have a retail partner so that our items are more accessible. Everyone needs a rollable flat to back-up their painful shoes. So, why not have a cute one like ours? It's a win-win-win -- for the customer, the retailer, and us! So, we are working on that. We also have some new colors and styles coming out -- stay tuned. Lastly, we have a unique partnership that we are working on; I can't say too much on that, but keep your eyes on our social media."

As is the list of what's to come this week!

Congratulations on your great start! I’ve just learned of your business and products through a link from the Emerson Rose Heart Foundation. I live that you are committed to giving back to those in need. It is so important in our world today. I love your shoes and think they will be great as one of my daughter’s Christmas gifts. They both wear heels at work and your flats seem perfect for giving their feet a rest!

I watched Melodie on Queen Boss and I was intriqued and interested in the sole savers shoes. I always can visually spot when someone will be successful. However, I wear heels sometimes but I will use these shoes as a every day use especially at work bc I teach and sometimes I do not want to wear shoes. So I will be purchasing a pair 2 see how it will turn out in class.
