Support Local!

April 28, 2021

I have always tried to support people and businesses that reflect my values. As a business owner, I feel an even greater responsibility to put my money and support where my values are. And, so far, I’m feeling really good about my partnerships in this venture as innkeeper. A few business values I hold most dear include transparency, efficiency, people over profit, sustainability, supporting the local community, and uplifting all people – including women, BIPOC and LBGTQ+. Here, I’d like to give a shout out to some of the amazing businesses I have partnered with or who have been supportive of me in this new venture:

Honor Credit Union – a local bank that has provided amazingly personal service 

Gravity Payments – putting purpose and people above profit

Leo & Laine – local women-owned marketing firm

Black Currant Bake House – local bakery making up the most delicious breakfast treats, coffee drinks and vegetarian lunches and lucky for me, located just up the street from Garden Grove in Union Pier
