Love 41 team, it’s been too long since we last connected. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with our community again. Some readers might have missed our prior conversations, so maybe you can kick things off for us with a quick intro?
Love 41 was started by Suzette Munson (wife of Dave Munson, Saddleback President) and her sister Tina Lytch. They were motivated by a deep desire to help the many hurting orphans, widows, and street children Suzette found on her first visit to the country of Rwanda in 2010. Rather than try to accomplish this monumental task on her own, Suzette realized that she and Tina could multiply their efforts by partnering with like-minded women. To gain their attention, Suzette began to do one of the things she does best – design. Since Saddleback already had the capability of manufacturing high-quality leather goods, the best plan was to use those facilities to produce women’s leather products such as backpacks, totes, and purses. The profits from the sales of those products would be used to further the mission of helping the helpless around the world through education, job training, the teaching of God’s Word, and numerous other avenues. With that, Love 41 was born and today continues toward its goal of reaching those less fortunate in places far and near.
What would you say the three most important things are to you about your business?
Quality Leather Products, Great customer service, 100% of the profit goes to helping those in need around the world
Can you talk us about working with or hiring family members? What are the main challenges and benefits?
We weren’t sure how it was going to work out to have two sisters working together but the beautiful thing we’ve noticed is that each of us brings many different strengths to the business.
What brings you the most joy at work?
Seeing the fruit of our labor. When we are able to help single moms, widows, and orphans with the profit of our sales.
Why do you choose to give away most of your profit?
We saw a need to help single moms, orphans, and widows and we started this company to help them.
Thank you so much again for sharing all of this with us. Before we go, can you share with our readers how they can connect with you, learn more or show support?
