Learning to Run« BACK TO JOURNAL
This September, Hatchet turned three years old.
Back when we started in 2009, as a recent graduate and not too sure what the future held, starting on this journey was both scary and exciting, but really there was nothing to lose. The economy had tanked, the job offer I had was not what I wanted to be doing, and the boy was feeling like he needed a change. So we got to work.
Now, three years later, it seems we have everything to lose. We have built a life, from the ground up, with Hatchet being the lifeblood. In its most elemental form, it is the umbilical cord that connects us to a life of passion and purpose. Without it, we would be hard-pressed to take this much ownership and stock in our own lives, in our successes and our failures. It is truly something we can get behind and stand up for, a priceless commodity in today’s climate.
We are more aware of who we are and what we stand for than ever before, and as we approach this fourth year of existence we intend to be more active in creating a path to the life we desire, rather than the one that is right in front of us. We have added a player to the team. One who we feel will bring amazing things to the table, as we hope to do for him.
And so, we would like to thank each and every one of you for all that you have helped us to build. Without strength in numbers and a few key people who were instrumental in our establishment, we would not be here today. We are excited for what this new year will bring, and we hope you’ll be there to drink more of our beer next year :)
