Today we officially renamed our Epicure Team to Trailblazers.
What is a trailblazer? Someone who is blazing a trail for others and a pioneer.
I’ve been a trailblazer in a lot of things in direct sales but the one I’m most proud of is my work in creating a diversity and inclusion committee at Epicure. During Black Lives Matters I was at home and haven’t left my block cause of COVID. I thought what could I do really that would help make a change? I was one person who haven’t left the house in days or the block. I was literally a pebble in an ocean. I then reached out to the CEO of Epicure Amelia Warren and from there we created a diversity and inclusion committee.
The committee is working on slowly making change within the company to make it a more inclusive space. Will we be able to make a change in everything? No, but then I thought I am a trailblazer and this really extends to my team. So as a small pebble that I mentioned above you can be thrown into the ocean and make small ripples that lead to bigger changes.
We had our first unconscious bias training that leaders, the committee and Epicure staff attended. Some of the other changes might be smaller like representation in Epicure social media and publications. My larger vision is that BIPOC are comfortable joining Epicure and that we have tons of diverse consultants.
The team is continuing to be a leader in so many things.
When I joined a year ago we were just about to expand into the USA! We have some of the first US consultants on our team that I earned an award for global business builders, one of 11 people to earn this award. I owe that to my amazing team. A few consultants joined the same day!
Leaders in online
I became a leader and built my business all online without a single in-person cooking class. I also did it within 6 months! Epicure head office noticed that I built all online and asked how I did it and I even had the pleasure of having lunch with Amelia the CEO of Epicure to tell her more about online. Now with COVID we are all online and I’ve been a trailblazer since I’ve already been doing it. I’m not sure I will ever have in-person classes ever again! I love the online space.
We the team continue to blaze trails in this new world and I can’t wait to see what happens next with our team. The team is growing and expanding and I know we will break more records, continue to find new and innovative ways to do business.
The other unexpected thing I love about our team is that we have become friends. Especially during COVID when I don’t see a lot of people it’s been wonderful to be able to see people online! They really are my friends and I love them.
My vision for the future
My vision for the team is that we are and continue to be the leaders in Epicure blazing the trail on online,
