Mondays are every successful individual's secret weapon. While the first day of the workweek may be a source of dread for some, others choose to see it as a fresh start, full of exciting possibilities. Seeking to inspire its customers to make Mondays better, the country's authority on premium coffee and tea, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, is celebrating some of today's most admired achievers by sharing snippets and stories of their success.
Just like how they select only the finest and rarest loose-leaf teas and premium coffees to serve to their customers, the brand has handpicked individuals from various fields of work to lead them on their mission to make Mondays better for everyone. Mondays Made Better features the likes of entrepreneur, artist, and social worker David Bonifacio, renowned fashion stylist Ria Casco, graphic designer and illustrator Dan Matutina, and fashion journalist and stylist Meg Manzano — each of whom have openly shared their passion for their work and the reason that Mondays have everything to do with it.
For Bonifacio, Mondays well spent bring a week of content. “I look forward to Mondays because they're opportunities to make work life better,” he reveals, who starts his Mondays on Sunday evenings in order to plan, prepare, and pray for the week ahead. “When you are managing multiple things, going for Big Hairy Audacious Goals, you cannot rely on just natural talent. You need to ready your soul and spirit.”
Casco sees Mondays as an exciting start of another week to live her calling to do creative work. “Nothing thrills me more than collaborating with like-minded creatives to capture stories through beautiful images. That, and a stimulating dose of tea gets me up at anytime on any day—Mondays included,” confides Ria Casco.
For Matutina, Mondays mean meeting new challenges head on. "I look forward to Mondays because it's an opportunity to go back to work,” shares Dan Matutina. He says, “It's an opportunity to solve new challenges, meet new clients and work on new projects.”
Manzano often needs to pinch herself on Mondays, because her work as a writer and stylist is her childhood dream come true. “My work has given me the opportunity to be able to work with people, brands, and stores that I grew up with” explains Meg Manzano. She tells, “It is humbling to think that my work can build things that could be a part of someone else's childhood. Realizing this keeps me committed to my craft, making Mondays not just bearable but anticipated—of course, a warm cup of tea won't hurt.”
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®’s Mondays Made Better is happening in tandem with an extra incentive from the brand that loves to pour happy.
