Farewell to 2020 and to Chocolate Calling
2020 brought about many changes, and like it or not, we’ve had plenty of time to slow down and re-evaluate our lives and how we spend our time. As we come to the end of this uniquely challenging year and look ahead to the new year, we have the opportunity to choose how we re-normalize our lives.
Running a small business is a challenging undertaking at any time. For the past five years, I’ve maintained a full-time job while growing Chocolate Calling. The pandemic added another layer of challenges from waiting in line at stores to buy ingredients to postal delivery delays to canceled markets. The attention demanded by a growing business and a full-time job left zero personal time and after five years, that has reached its limit.
It is a bittersweet decision to close the business, even though it is the right one. Thanks to each and every one of you for your support and enthusiasm and encouragement these past five years. Wishing you all a safe and healthy and happy new year full of love, laughter, and of course, chocolate!
