Smashing’s Ab Workout — the Year in Review

December 26, 2011

I can hardly believe it has almost been a year since we launched Smashing.  As I was reviewing our blogs for our “year in review” today, I couldn’t believe how many crazy things have happened!  I mean seriously folks, we can’t make this stuff up.

So sit back and prepare for some ab exercises, as you relive the highlights of 2011 with us in Smashing’s Year in Review.

We learned that the devil is in the details when it comes to our many systems– including inventory What Charlie Sheen, Bernie Madoff and Smashing Have in Common ,

shipping in Going Postal with a Blender , E=MC2 and The Tale of the UPS Man, My Bathrobe and the Heart Attack

and our factory/product Our Factory is SOOOO sleeping on the Couch Tonight

We learned while we love a trunk show, they are all not created equal in Hypothermia & She Bop on Repeat and the Panera Trunk Show

We learned that different departments have different criteria for financial success Marketing Math vs CPAs which is why I’m not allowed at the bank anymore APB out for Spinner

We got tons of GREAT media in our launch year (including Golf Digest, Shape, More, WBBM/CBS, Make It Better and countless others), although not all was easy Marilu Henner wants Smashing and The Chicken, The Electric Toothbrush and Smashing .  And we learned that to get noticed at the PGA Show you need more than great clothes in Smashing’s Marketing Tool Box – A Flask, A Stack of Dollar Bills & The Fuzz

We learned my mom is not allowed on Google in Whatever you do, DO NOT CLICK ON THE ADS

We also learned that we seem to have a lot of dirty laundry in She Pooped in Her Pants and Smashing’s Dirty Laundry

But most of all, we learned that through on the bumps along the way, we still keep our sense of humor.  Big Foot Sighting, Pimped out Golf Cart and Renal Failure at the Photo Shoot. 

2012 is shaping out to be a banner year.  Stay tuned for our big announcement in January, for our new Spring styles and of course, our blog.

Happy New Year!

    Times does fly when you’re having fun, although a few more grey hairs and 5 more lbs!
