April 2020: Feedback
In celebration of International Women’s Day, March 8, the March issue of PPB featured the careers and companies of six successful female business owners from across the promotional products industry.
I’m so proud of the women in our industry and pored over every word of this sharing of dreams, successes, hurdles and love. Thank you to the admired leaders profiled here and to the many other women who boldly and passionately dare to be their unique selves: beacons, inspirers, game-changers and the best moms ever.

As the coronavirus continues to disrupt supply chains in China and beyond, industry companies are dealing with the impact on their business, vendors and customers, but haven’t forgotten the people affected by the disease.
Our partners at Browse 25 in China are doing a fantastic job of continual communication with our factories regarding re-open dates, current projects and how every detail is being affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Our clients, though understandably concerned about their client’s orders, are very understanding and know that every possible effort is being made to meet their deadlines. The most important thing, however, is the people.
Despite living and working on opposite sides of the world, our Browse 25 team is more family now than simply business partners. Since our inception 10 years ago, [together] we have gone through marriages, the birth of children and grandchildren, family illnesses and the death of several beloved family members, both young and old. Our hearts are knit together with more than P.O.s and tracking numbers. A chapter of my upcoming book Gratitude is a Perspective will certainly be devoted to how our partners in China feel about and deal with this current situation. God is good.
