We’re always so glad to get to know our customers better, and learn a little about what’s important to you! We love to give you peeks behind the scenes here too. Today you’ll get to know Tal Ewing.
What are you in charge of at Beeyoutiful?
Working at a small business like Beeyoutiful means that we all make contributions to several areas of the business. I spend the majority of my time supervising the ordering, shipping, and receiving of all our products. I also produce our sales reports that let us know how our business is doing.
What do you do every day?
Every day is interesting here at Beeyoutiful. Some days you will find me talking to our manufacturers and staff about our products. Other days, I’m focused on creating reports that will help us keep up with the business side of things, or I’m helping our team plan our sales and marketing strategies. And every day, you will find me working with our team to troubleshoot problems that invariably pop up along the way.
What can customers count on you for?
My goal is to make sure that we make available the best products to our customers for the best price. If one of our products is ever out of stock, know that it simply means we can’t currently meet one of those criteria. Sometimes, a product is delayed because an essential ingredient didn’t pass our quality testing, and sometimes we have to discontinue a product for a time because it becomes too expensive for us and our customers.
What do you do to support your own health?
My main health struggle has always been my allergies, so I try to be proactive in keeping them under control. I try to take one of our BerryWell products at the first sign of an itchy throat or runny nose. I’m even learning to like some of the herbal teas that my wife Mary makes for me when I’m sick. I downed a ton of red raspberry tea this winter when I had a cold, and it helped tremendously. I also try to stay active by working in the yard or garden and chasing after the kids.
When you’re not working on Beeyoutiful projects, what’s one way that you enjoy spending your time?
I’m learning to farm. In fact, that is one of the main reasons I’m working at Beeyoutiful. We wanted to move to Centerville so that we could enjoy a simpler, rural life with and work with friends. So, along with our co-worker Jeff and his wife Michelle, Mary and I have helped create a garden and raise pastured chickens. We are even going to grow out a few turkeys for the holidays!
