We have just turned 4 and to celebrate another year of our journey we wanted to share a message written by our CEO, Clarice. It will shed some light on how we started, what challenges we have come upon and what are our plans and aspirations for the future. Enjoy!
Message from Clarice, our CEO
This month we celebrate our 4th Birthday and it feels really special to be a toddler in the world (as my own three toddlers at home would agree). We have learned to walk but still run a little funny and trip over at times. We know what we want to say and are finding our voice, but the language is still new and we don’t always get it right. We want to be heard, we have a say. We know what we want (the yellow plate, not the red one!) and are all out to get it.
The discovery of Vitamin D’s potential as a topical analgesic was made and patented by Dr John Lyftogt back in 1992. To Better Days was set up to help these ideas and insights reach people who could benefit from them and we started out as a business in September 2017. We only launched our first patches in January 2020, after two years of further research, listening to those who lived in pain and further testing and trials to find the perfect product that would be safe, easy to use and convenient. The business was set up with the vision of offering great, natural, side effect free products for chronic pain sufferers but also more than that, to create a safe environment to share ideas and insights, experiences and tips within the community. We aim to be a non-judgmental, empathetic and open-minded space where the chronic community and their friends and loved ones can be really seen and heard.
2020 was an odd year to launch a business, to say the least. For so many of us, it was sad, isolating and scary time, away from loved ones and uncertain about what the future held in store. At To Better Days we felt we more than ever needed to support our community through relevant content and information. We learned so much and made quite a few mistakes, but it’s been an incredible journey. We have grown our Facebook support community 2,5 fold in the past year and our Instagram following by 5 fold. We are still a learning small business but we are growing and we are determined to make a difference.
So I wanted to take the opportunity to really truly thank all our customers and friends, the people who read our articles, post and share, correct us when we make mistakes and generally make life better for those around them. It’s been incredible and we are honoured and humbled by your support and trust in us. This year we are launching 2 more products – including an amazing cream which offers progressive recovery of tired or stiff joints. I use it after exercise for speeding up recovery and for my trouble areas like my hips and ankles and something else which we think will revolutionise how we take care of our health. So do watch this space, subscribe to our mailing list to be in the loop for the new launches and special events.
