Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce.

I basically got started with my business because I was interested in all things beauty. But I knew that I didn’t have time to go back to school for Cosmetology. So I just started looking around for things that would not take a lot of time for me to get certified in. Read more>>
