New adventure

So one business is never enough, right??  
I am excited to share that I am starting a new business.  I am one of the co-founders of a company called Loyal to the Soil.  My husband Jim, myself and our third business partner Chris are starting the company together.  We were accepted into an incubator program called Seed Spot back in September. 
SEED SPOT supports early stage social entrepreneurs who are launching ventures that
create a positive impact in the lives of people and communities on a local, national, or global scale.
Selected ventures will participate in a rigorous 18-week program and on May 17th we pitch our business to a crowd of potential investors!  Click here to check out the list of ventures participating!
It's very exciting and I am learning so much.  So if you don't see me at Bunky, I'm at my Loyal to the Soil offices at the Levine Building.  I would love to give anyone interested a tour of our collaborative office space.  See some photos below from our first week at Seed Spot as well as the launch party event last Thursday evening.  Details on the business and lots more info to come....stay tuned!  
A totally magical night!
