Welcoming 2024: Last Thoughts on the Year Gone By

Dec 31, 2023

Reflecting on the whirlwind that was 2023, it's been a rollercoaster ride filled with highs and lows, just like any other year. As we welcomed the new year, little did we anticipate the challenging start it had in store for us. The first months saw us grappling with the unexpected—a battle against Covid that struck our household upon our return from a much-needed holiday. It was an unprecedented experience for all three of us, marked by a cascade of symptoms and a cocktail of emotions. Omma vividly recall my tears amid battling migraines while the Little Boss, surprisingly energetic despite grappling with the C+! Can you believe it's been nearly a year since that chaotic January and February? Time truly has flown by, leaving us now at the doorstep of December, reflecting on the journey we've traversed in what feels like the blink of an eye.

As soon as we landed back in Singapore, the hustle began. Our top priority was settling in for the Little Boss's preschool while simultaneously gearing up to kickstart Ahgiya! 

In our earliest days, one of our most vivid memories was the quest to find parents within the right age group who could test our products before they officially launched. It was a challenging endeavor as we were just starting out and needed individuals who would put their trust in our vision. The response we received was beyond what we anticipated; the enthusiasm and support were overwhelming. Requests poured in, even after we had initially filled our tester slots, with people still eager to participate. The demand was so high that we had to open up a second batch of testing, welcoming even more individuals to provide valuable feedback on our products.

Fast forward once more, and Ahgiya! was finally live! Yet, this marked merely another milestone in our journey. Expanding our audience required patience and dedication, elements that inherently take time to flourish. Nevertheless, our unwavering belief in our products fueled our persistence. Despite the challenges, we persevered, continuously pushing forward.

In what feels like the blink of an eye, we've hit the 2-month mark and found ourselves with a growing base of returning customers. Their loyalty means the world to us; their continued trust in our products is something we deeply appreciate. Our goal extends beyond mere transactions – we aim to offer more than convenience. We aspire to become a guiding support for all the soon-to-be parents out there, drawing from our own experiences to provide not just products but also a wealth of support and guidance. After all, we've walked the path they're about to tread.

As we step into 2024, we anticipate larger challenges ahead, but rest assured, we're committed to learning from any missteps and emerging stronger, solely for your benefit.

Until then, embrace the joy of the holidays, and from all of us, here's to wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a joyous New Year!
