When I was younger, I had a cousin who lived in a mansion. With a pool. As I wandered the halls of my cousin’s house, I remember thinking to myself, “man, when I’m older, I want to be really rich, so I can have a mansion like this one, with a really big pool!” In hindsight, I realise that whilst the house was big, it was far from being a mansion. But I was 10, so a mansion it was – (did I already mention the awesome pool?!)
Well, I finally reached the age of “older” and I’m neither really rich nor do I have a mansion. I’m married with 3 kids, 2 dogs, 1 bearded dragon and 4 fish, living by the beach, and… I’m happy. Whilst I may not be filthy rich with money, I can honestly say that I am happy and content, for I have wealth in the areas that matter – time, freedom, relationships, health and impact.
And so it is this immaterial wealth that informs the Victoria Eve. & Co. company values, for:
in good health we conceive Empowerment;
out of freedom we gain Authenticity;
through having impact we earn Integrity;
by forming relationships we build Family;
in allowing ourselves time and space we nurture our Creativity.
It is in this light that I hope to shape the culture of Victoria Eve. & Co., and already I feel privileged to have on board with me a team of strong women who share these same values.
