Whoever said you couldn’t turn your dreams into reality? Darbie Angell was able to apply her passion to impact the world, and knowledge in design onto a blank canvas to create a modern and casual dishware line. Darbie Angell is a small business that has been operating for nine years in Georgetown, Texas.
“So many people are so afraid of failure. But failure is not the end. It is only the end if you allow it to be the end,” says Darbie Angell. Most times when running a business people can get caught up in wanting to have the perfect outcome that they forget it takes a plethora amount of time, effort, and sacrificing before having the final product. Darbie Angell reminds us that it is okay to fail, but you have to have the courage to get back up and learn from your mistakes. “Only you have the power to keep trying and to make your vision a reality.”
With Darbie Angell shipping to large corporations and customers around the globe is vital. She uses FedEx Office for safe shipments on fragile dishware, “My company literally started with FedEx Office employees standing by my side. They help me wrap 40 boxes of product at a time and all with smiles that encouraged me to keep pushing as hard as I could,” says Darbie Angell.[jetpack_subscription_form title="Subscribe to Out of Office:" subscribe_button="Sign Me Up"]
