It's official! 2 years and counting for Bolt Addiction!
How did I get here and where did the time go?
This newsletter is dedicated to my journey and pride that has made this company everything I could have dreamed about.
June 2018 my life changed forever. I was 38 and told that I had very aggressive breast cancer and had to start treatment ASAP. I had a corporate career that spanned 2 decades, 2 little kiddo's in preschool, and a hard working, incredible husband. I sprinted through a super aggressive year long treatment plan that included chemo, radiation and very rough surgery. To say I went to hell and back, and then to hell and back again...is me just trying to keep this newsletter uplifting and PG.
As I laid around (a lot) feeling like I was never going to feel like myself again, I knew there had to be a silver lining in all of this, right? While literally pondering life as I battled breast cancer, I realized it was time to take everything I had been taught and become my own boss. Prior to corporate America, I spent every spare moment working with my Dad selling printed t-shirts, sweatshirts and more. From hot summer street fairs and fests that I worked in my adolescent years; clothes and fashion had always been my biggest passion. And it got me through the excruciating days while I was battling my cancer.
Going through the breast cancer journey, marathon or whatever else you want to call it, I truly realized how short life is and how important it is to be happy each and every day. It was my opportunity to do what I have always wanted to do.
INSERT BOLT ADDICTION
My new life, new baby, new business venture came about as a result of a huge gap in the market for on trend, fresh, fashion forward looks at prices that would have you take a triple take and then come back wanting more.
Our new logo is edgy, elegant and sophisticated - just how our clothing elevates YOU, the customer and the only person in the end I care is always happy. I hope you love our mini facelift (on the logo) as much as I do and continue to support Bolt Addiction. Because without all of you, Bolt would be nothing.
So happy 2 years Bolt Addiction!
To say I am proud is an understatement. Here's to many, many more amazing outfits and years of growth⚡️
