Our 2019 Staff Retreat

It is a common saying here at Yobel Market that we are “ships passing in the night”. With the daily small business hustle, our communication can often be limited to a monthly meeting, electronic communication and writing notes in our staff notebook. As individuals, we are each passionate about economically empowering marginalized people all over the world, which drives us each day to educate about and sell fair trade products. But the key to our success is each other. Nothing is more motivating than spending quality time together as a staff, bonding and chasing our common goal!

This January we were given the opportunity to do an overnight retreat at SCP Hotel, here in Colorado Springs. What a glorious gift it was to spend almost two days together in fellowship, dreaming big beautiful fair trade dreams! We enjoyed spacious, cozy common rooms outfitted with hammock chairs and local art while sharing our personal and professional goals, then created a blueprint for a prosperous new year for Yobel Market. We bonded over locally sourced libations and Japanese take out at the SCP bar, and retired to our lovely, spacious rooms for a cozy night's rest (after each decompressing with a hot bath in their vintage tubs). A big thanks to the lovely staff at SCP Hotel for hosting us! This retreat offered the perfect balance of rest, relaxation, team building and strategy. I can’t think of a better way to start a New Year: with intention, and with each other.
