This is not a list of sponsorships. The brands I list here are some of my favorite non-profit and for-profit organizations that I spend my personally hard-earned money on and buy products from. I believe in their products and usually their missions. Strong recommend.
R Riveter: A military spouse owned and operated business, R Riveter creates handbags from upcycled military materials. More than just a handbag company, R Riveter provides mobile employment to military spouses who move on average every 2.9 years.
Southern Elegance Candle Company: As if SECC being military spouse-owned and made right in Raeford, NC (where I live!) wasn’t enough reason to love them, owner D’Shawn is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. “Savannah,” the peach nectar scent, is the best candle I’ve ever smelt in my life. An upstanding company with an upstanding founder.
Banza: Founded by fellow Venture for America Fellow Brian Rudolph, Banza is chickpea pasta. All the deliciousness of pasta with half the carbs, twice the protein, and twice the fiber. Seems like a win to me. Here is my Banza referral link. This gets you a $10 discount and gets me a $10 coupon code.
Mountain Gap Photography: Having worked with Betsy and AJ on a shoot in Baltimore, I will recommend them over and over. I was so impressed with how easy they were to work with! You can read about my experience with them on the Mountain Gap Blog.
Shift Society Magazine: This is the first print magazine where I was published. The team behind the Shift Society Magazine is amazing, supportive, and a pleasure to work with.
Overcast.FM: My favorite podcast player! I only listen to podcasts a 2.1+ speed and Overcast is definitely the best way to do that!
