Joy in a Box is a new subscription gift company that offers anyone who is into healthy living and growing your own food an affordable, easy fun way to get started. I am Jenny Stork, a 42 year old mother of three who has 20 years of marketing, sales and commercial experience. Born and raised in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and now living in the UK, I am a keen gardener and enjoy doing this with my children who love growing their own food too.
The business idea came about when I tried to find an affordable monthly gift for my partner that he could look forward to every month, something between a full scale present on one end and a greeting card on the other and affordable enough so I would hardly notice it going out of my bank account each month. All I could find was socks (boring!) or gift-subscriptions that were just too expensive to buy on a monthly basis.
So I decided to create my own product instead?
Joyinabox is in its early days of preparing to launch our first product I anticipate this to be in the Summer of this year. Wish me lots of luck!
I have set up a Facebook page so I can take my customers on my journey and so they are involved right from the start and really buy into the whole concept. This is an approach I would also like to take with everyone involved
I have also registered on the South African Website and as you can see created a business web page, follow my journey and subscribe here, new articles and updates of my progress will be emailed to you.
