Although the weather is still pretty warm, we have been slowing just a bit at LOL this last week giving us some time to catch up on filing and getting organized again. With the newest lemonade addition now launched and on its way, I am super happy to have a new delicious tea blend to add to our line. We have just finished up our 10th year – and I can hardly believe it.  I hardly remember what my life was like before LOL.  While I thought it would be the answer only to my financial problems and a way for me to help contribute financially to our family, it turned out to be more than I could have imagined.  I’ve met so many amazing people, won awards for my lemonade and myself by SCORE, CSUCI, Pacific Coast Business Times, NAWBO, Specialty Retailers Association, Beverage World Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, traveled to New York twice to accept industry awards, met Oprah Winfrey, Seth Goldman, Biz Stone, Malcolm Gladwell, John Mackey, Bill Bolthouse, Bolthouse Farms, Steve Demos, White Wave, interviewed by Maria Shriver for Good Morning America and more amazing things than I can list here. So I’ve been working on a book to recap the what is some of the craziest experiences that I’ve had along the way in my quest to own my own business, a dream I have had for decades. And when I thought I would never love business again after raising my three children and working for the local school district. I was fortunate enough to be laid off from my job so that I could find the tipping point in my life and create Lori’s Original Lemonade company. I am on track to release my book in 2022. A story in the making, of hard work, perseverance, dedication, surviving, and thriving during the pandemic. We will keep you posted on the launch and until then look forward to serving you the most delicious lemonades for you to sip and share.
