Hello to all our members, subscribers, followers, associates and dear friends.
Christmasy feelings are all around us again. It is so different than any other time of the year. It reminds us that now is time to clean up our surroundings and that now we should be extra nice to each other and get closer. It reminds us that we should look back upon the past 12 months and see all the rights and wrongs, and also to look forward to a new year with more hope to be better. No matter how religious or commercial Christmas is, it has so much goodness that brings us all together.
First I would like to look back upon our 12 months and share with you some highlights of 2016. Apart from the recent expected loss of Serkan’s mother in law which was quite upsetting, I want to thank God for all my family members getting through the year with health and happiness.
Yeners Way continues to welcome a substantial number of new members with a healthy growing rate which is always very motivating for me. As I mentioned in my message last year, we sold our factory in June which was 30 km away from home and set up a fully equipped studio at home. I am so happy that we don’t have to drive everyday for 1.5 hours any more. Also to be able to concentrate mainly on tutorials is more enjoyable, especially at my age. I would like to thank all our members in the past 3 years since we started, for making this dream possible.
We’ve made our first joint venture with Polen Food Oceania and endorsed their Rolled Fondant by placing my handsome face on the product. I proudly believe in Vizyon Rolled Fondant’s quality and use it in most of my tutorials now. Through this joint venture we have successfully participated in several seminars and exhibitions as well. Next year, I will be on the stage a lot more with these activities starting with the International Cake Show Brisbane in February, and the Cake Bake & Sweets Show in Sydney and Melbourne. There are also national and state seminars with associations already scheduled. I thought I could be a little more relaxed when I only do tutorials but it appears that this is not the case. I am busier than ever but happy to be so.
The plan for next year is to take care about my health which is quite necessary when I am trying to be on the same stage with young cake decorating boys and girls. I am also aiming to improve on our video quality by getting some more equipment and to produce more tutorials that cover wider range of techniques. The bag is quite full and I promise to take more things out one by one and share with you guys, my dear members.
I would also like to say don’t forget the unfortunate kids in war and the people who need bread while we happily decorate cakes. Feel for peace and feel for whole world while we still have it.
So that is all from me guys for this year message God bless you all. Thank you for having me for one more year and thank you sooooo much for making Yeners Way part of your online learning experience. On behalf of my family and myself, we wish you and your family the best Christmas ever and a most happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
