My name is Beth Kail, and I am the VP of Finance and Process at Bros. Leather Supply Co.
I’ve recently transitioned into a new role at Bros. Leather. Up until the last couple of months Adam has been doing almost everything for Bros by himself, including “the books”, aka the whole financial piece. You probably guessed my new transition by now; I took over the books. Sounds daunting and a little bit like something that most people would rather slam their head on the table than do. But, to be truthful, I really like doing stuff like this. It’s in my background and in my blood because I’m, well, a perfectionist. :) I love going meticulously through every little detail, line by line. It really gives me a lot of joy.
All of this to say, over the past few weeks, I’ve been going through different transactions, and, lets face it, we sell stuff, so I’ve been going through a lot of sales transactions. I even went all the way back to the first few sales we ever had, almost a year ago. Which leaves me feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude and awe. Gratitude in you, our customer and “family.” Gratitude in our friends and (legitimate) family because when we said we started a business selling leather bags, they bought one (or if you’re our parents, two or three or four). And awe in my husband who is the driving force behind this whole idea, this whole operation. He never ever quits. I’m in awe of him.
I am so thankful for all of you who decided to carry an awesome Bros bag. Our team is growing because of you and we are just filled with excitement with where this journey is taking us.
Also, we like to post pictures with our blog posts, and I wanted to share this picture taken just this week by James Lacroix featuring The Emerson at frozen Lake Michigan. It's an awesome picture, and this depicts just how FREEZING it is here in Michigan.
