It’s Sisters’ Day!
National Sisters' Day always falls on the first Sunday in August (how fitting for Fatty Sundays)! While they may not always agree, sisters share such a unique bond unlike anything else, and they deserve their own holiday! And sisterhood is, of course, a huge part of Fatty Sundays.
Together, Ali and Lauren have been through it all. From growing up enjoying 'fatty Sundays' with their family, to now building a chocolate pretzel biz, they've shared many amazing memories as sisters and co-founders.
In honor of the day, we asked Ali and Lauren separately five questions on what it’s like being sisters and work partners. And guess what? They basically had the same answers! They must be sisters after all. Check out the special Q&A here!
What is the best part of working with your sister?
LAUREN: There is an innate trust that we have with each other that is nearly impossible to have with anyone that isn't family! Knowing we always have each others' backs even during the hardest of times - as sisters, co-founders, business partners, friends, all of the above - is something that is really invaluable. Ali is also uber creative in all ways that I am not - keeps me on my toes! She's the left brain to my right brain behind Fatty Sundays and I couldn't imagine it any other way!
What is more challenging about working with your sister?
How have you celebrated National Sisters' Day in the past?
How do you handle tough situations, arguments or disagreements with your sister when it comes to Fatty Sundays?
You must spend a lot of time together in the office. Do you also see each other on your down time? What are some things you like to do together outside of Fatty Sundays?
LAUREN: Spending a lot of time together is an understatement! I'd say majority of our time together outside of work is more generally family time, with our parents and husbands and Ruthie (Ali's daughter!). We definitely have a lot of family hang time in the summer by the pool and should probably be better about hanging out more unrelated to Fatty Sundays in any direct way! Always a work in progress.
We all have a special gal in our life. Whether it be your sister, sister-in-law, BFF or work wife, show them how much you love them a little extra today!
Happy National Sisters’ Day!
