News On The Homefront

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

I returned to Mali late Tuesday night and went to visit Sababu on Wednesday afternoon.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous.  Nervous because I left for nearly 4 weeks………..the day after the grand opening.  I had the utmost confidence in the management team so I boarded the plane with little doubt.  However, as I went back on Wednesday I started to question just how smart it was to leave. 
After the short 10 minute drive and 86 speedbumps (exaggeration, but not by much), I arrived at Sababu.  I greeted the management team and looked at the progress……….I was all smiles.  My expectations were surpassed and great progress was made in many areas. 
I’m convinced that having the right people in the right place is what makes things successful.  Our management team is top-notch and I am undeserving to have a group like them on board at Sababu.  The truth is, they are Sababu.  They are the ones that have made this vision come to fruition.  They are the ones who have put the right people in the right places.  They are the ones developing life in radical ways.  It’s our job to make sure that they can continue to do this by getting the product into the hands of our American friends.  Are you willing to make this happen?

Sababu Clothing at Life Event

Sababu Clothing is headed to the CMA LIFE Festival in Louisville, KY this week.  We are excited to be a part of this awesome event.  We will have the opportunity to speak from the stage to 5,000 young people.  It should be a great time and a great location for our “soft launch” of Sababu Clothing.
