Why is your company called Yager and May? November 18 2014
Today I was asked to explain my company name. Here goes...
Yager is my family name, the surname of my Grandparents. Much of the person I am I owe to my grandparents, both of whom were great examples to me, and unfailingly encouraging. They were creative to the core, especially my grandfather who always had some crack-pot artistic project on the go and could turn his hand to anything.
May is my middle name, as it was my grandmothers and my great-grandmothers.
It feels good to be saying aloud the names of my long gone family that meant so much to me. Its a source of inspiration, and commitment to this project.
Plus I thought it sounded cool, kinda like a Victorian soap company so why the hell not?
This is me (aged 7 or 8) and my grandmother, Elizabeth May Yager. I have no idea what I am holding in this picture.
