I’ve worked in the corporate world – and for private industry. I have great stories about both experiences, so prior to landing my current position I kept an open mind about my next career step. Five years later, I can share that being a part of a small family business has literally been a breath of fresh air.
It’s the same for Lori and Mike Miscovich. Years ago as they worked in fast paced corporate roles, they did some personal soul searching and asked themselves ‘why does everything artificial seem so natural and everything natural seems so foreign?’
In 2013, the couple left their careers and relocated to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Today they encourage followers to momentarily unplug from their mobile devices – and take time to pause and enjoy the beauty of wildlife and nature. They like to consider themselves as the marketing team for Mother Nature under the Hermit brand – created for people who enjoy experiencing the outdoors and the wilderness the way it was intended to be: unplugged, unpaved and uncompromised.
The Hermit brand also commits to offering products made with the environment in mind – organic/natural products – made in America. They offer t-shirts, ball caps and of course, Sunset Hill Stoneware mugs, steins, crocks – all made in America reflecting color schemes straight from nature.
On October 29, Hermit brand will be celebrating National Hermit Day. A day dedicated to those of us who want to chill out by ourselves. A day dedicated to step away from the hustle and bustle of life and retreat to a quiet place. No phone, no computer – a time to nap, read, rest and relax. Doesn’t that sound inviting? It may become my favorite holiday.
Keeping watch. Pat
