StorErotica's 11th Annual Awards recognize The MIMIC as the best New Product of the Year!
Let's get personal for a moment:
My name is Kim and I'm the Director of Sales and Operations for Clandestine Devices. Before this wonderful opportunity came to me in 2015, I had been a veteran of the adult-retail industry, having started in Central PA in 2003. Needless to say, this has been a dream job. No career is without its struggles, but I wholeheartedly believe that hard work and positivity will always lead to success, which includes happiness. This industry is small, tightly knit, familial, and warm. On Monday night, I got to attend the Storerotica awards with the president and founder of Clandestine Devices, Jules. He and I were truly honored just to be nominated among our fellow manufacturers. We are the new kid on the block, and seeing our MIMIC up there with so many other wonderful products was heart-warming. And then... we won!
I don't remember every word I said during our thank-you speech. I'm an improviser, and if I had written a thank-you speech, I'm sure it wouldn't have been as genuine. But I know I thanked StorErotica, the ANME Founders, and all of the voters who supported us enough to help us take home the trophy. I also know that I expressed how thrilled I am to work in an industry where we have the opportunity to win awards for doing what we love to do. Aren't we lucky?
Below is the actual press release regarding our StorErotica win, but I didn't want to publish this without taking the time to personally thank you for your support and explain why this means so much to me and to us.
Here's what we learned or were reminded of in 2017:
