1. HAPPINESS: OUR MISSION AND OUR FORMULA FOR SUCCESS
New members of the Nadine West Team,
First of all, big welcome to Nadine West! Of all the places you could be right now, you chose Nadine West and we’re glad you’re here.
Secondly, I’d like to share our mission and our formula for success.
Our company mission is to: deliver happiness to the everyday woman.
Our formula for long-term success is: Happy Customers + Happy Employees = Winning.
According to science, gratitude is the key to happiness. So, today is the perfect day to express our deepest thanks for being a part of Nadine West. We are very grateful to have such an amazing team. In fact, that is why we named our internal team blog “thankyou.nadinewest.com.”
Thank you, Nadine West Team!
2. NADINE WEST CORE VALUES
Last month, I wrote about how we do things differently at Nadine West. Why? It’s because we value different things than other organizations. We value:
- DEEP WORK
- FOCUS ON THE SYSTEM
This is just a partial list. If you are curious to learn more, please read last month’s team update.
3. THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO CHANGE PATIENTS’ LIVES
Did you know that there are about 300 million people around the world living with a rare disease? Ben’s Friends Patient Communities is a non-profit that runs online support communities for people living with a rare disease. Ben’s Friends helps about 100,000 people every month connect with others like them.
Nadine West helps out Ben’s Friends Patient Communities with donations of time and money. Executive Director Clasina Field recorded this beautiful video thanking all of us – including Sascha, Sidney, Joe, and Rosemarie by name.
4. THANK YOU FOR HELPING FAMILIES AFFECTED BY TYPHOON ROLLY
Earlier this month, Shy and Nadine West combined forces to help families affected by massive flooding and heavy winds from a powerful typhoon that hit her local province in the Philippines. Below are pictures with Shy helping to distribute food and supplies directly to families affected.
Shy, everyone here at Nadine West is so proud of your work helping others!! ❤️

9. FEEDBACK ALWAYS WELCOME
Sidney and I (and all your team leads) are still learning on the job, every day. Sidney and I have made so many silly mistakes over the past 6 years, one day we will compile them into a book called “Best of Nadine West Fails!!”
We all make mistakes, but what matters is that we remain open to self-improvement and seek feedback from others on how we can do better.
If you have any suggestions for your team leads, please let them know. If you have any suggestions for me or for Sidney, please don’t be bashful about letting us know.
Thank you so much for being the best team ever! 🙏
