Meet the YEN Local Ambassadors!

In case you missed it, we hosted our first ambassador run meetups last month and they were a huge success. 10 cities, across the US, all in one day. We could not have done this without the help of our community.

We had the opportunity to interview our ambassadors earlier this week. Interested in learning more about them? Then keep reading!

A New Classic, Just Like Us.

It goes without saying that any throwback or attempt at retro-styling these days is, as far as I can tell, unapologetically unoriginal.

Nothing Without Our Community

September has been a busy, but celebratory month for us at YEN and we couldn’t be happier. We upgraded our platform last week, we are officially larger than Tokelau, and our first ever Global Community Meetup is taking place this Saturday.

And although we love building this platform, we are not building it for us, we are building it for our community! Besides, they all have been doing some amazing things recently — they deserve to be recognized!

1,000+ Community Members, Unlimited Stories

You heard that right. We officially have over 1,000 Yenizens in the Yeniverse! The last time I wrote on hitting a milestone was in July when we became larger than Vatican City. At that time, we had 810 Community Members, which means we have grown 25% in a month (wow!). I absolutely love seeing fresh faces on the platform, but what I love even more is seeing the warm welcome they receive from our community.

Feedback Wanted: Our Brand Essence

To start, a confession: I was wrong, I’m sorry, and I hope you can forgive me as I really, really believed that this was going to be our final landing page before we go public.
