Gratitude Is a Must:
Giving Thanks to Our Community



Hey BYP Network,


Following on from a whirlwind few months of Senior Leadership Conference planning and execution, our focus is on recuperating and planning ahead. For the future, we're thinking about our next steps - how we can make our app more scaleable, how we can reach out to even more networks and where we go from here. However, this week we're thinking about something entirely different.


What's on our mind this week is gratitude.


In business, it can be so easy to focus on growth and goals. But we want to take this time to consider and take a pause. We're dedicating this week's post to all of you who continue to support this platform and constantly support and champion our mission here at BYP. We couldn't do it without you. 

We've been supported and backed by our community since day 1, and now 2 years later, to see this network grow to over 30,000 members in over 65 countries and to have over 800 of you attend our event is something we're continuously thankful for. With people attending our event from the Netherlands, Uganda and beyond, we're both humbled and in awe of the love and kindness of our network.


The mission continues with our app launch on the horizon (news soon to come) and our focus on our BYP global hubs. We want to be setting up bases across the world and growing our ambassador network. Do you want to be a part of it? If so, why not sign up to be a BYP ambassador here.


 In the words of Koffee, gratitude is a must.
