Since 2015, we have been eating, sleeping, dreaming and breathing life into the creation and development of the I See You® Candle. When we were brainstorming the name of our company and products, we always came back to the initial moment of inspiration from our father’s random act of kindness with an employee. In this moment of appreciation, he literally said the words, “Because I See You!”
We believe that no matter the direction of our company, our core values will be centered around the fact that everyone deserves to feel seen, recognized and appreciated. In 2015 if you searched #iseeyou on social media there were less than 500 hashtags associated with this saying. However, over time we started to hear more people using the I See You vernacular. By 2016, we knew there was a shift occurring in our country! We noticed how people were sharing their own feelings of what I See You meant to them. Whether it was a passing comment that someone just wished that they were seen for how hard they worked to someone who said how much they appreciated it when someone truly saw and connected to who they are, we knew that we were on the right path with The I See You Company. There was even a high-profile moment when Viola Davis, during her Golden Globe award winning speech, chose the words “I See You” when paying tribute to Meryl Streep [at 2:22 in the video you’ll see what she says]. Hearing people speak in this way was validation that it wouldn’t be farfetched to ask people to create what would become our coined phrase, I See You Moments.
There was a goosebump moment that happened prior to our launch that I will never forget. In 2016, while driving in Nashville, I turned the radio on and The Bobby Bones Show was on. I rushed to turn the volume up as I heard Bobby Bones say “I See You Manny Pacquiao. You didn’t just build 1 house for A family, you built 1,000 homes. I See You Manny!” That was a moment I’ll never forget. I pulled over on the side of the hill, threw on my emergency flashers and started filming my radio. I had to share this with my business partner/sister and our dad because Bobby Bones was speaking the way we spoke about seeing and recognizing people!
I’ll never forget this because Bobby Bones was using his time on the radio to spread positivity. No sponsors. No Sales. Just a message of goodness and celebration for an act of kindness! His way of recognizing someone by saying “I See You” is what we call an I See You Moment. An I See You Moment is when someone takes the time to recognize, SEE and appreciate someone for who they are, what they are doing and celebrate them as a person. Now, with our I See You® Candle, you can create an I See You Moment that includes a wish!!!!!!!
I have yet to meet Bobby Bones, but I know this day is coming soon! It has too! We can’t wait to create an I See You Moment for him! We didn’t know that it would be another year and half til we launched The I See You Company, but we believe this segment on The Bobby Bones Show was a beacon of light and divine reminder that we were headed in the right direction with The I See You Company, our message and product!
So, Bobby Bones………We See you! We recognize and celebrate you for choosing to spread a message of positivity, laughter and refreshing realness to people across the nation! Even journalist, Derek Scancarelli, with Forbes Magazine wrote about how amazing you are, what you’re doing and your recent book. We can’t wait to recognize you with an I See You Moment and a WISH!!!
