From the Founder :: Get to know Kristin and 10+ ethical brands she loves
Hey lovely people! It’s been awhile since I’ve dropped in here, so I thought I’d do a little ‘get to know me’ since I am one with the business and the business is with me (nerd alert 🤓 ).
Here’s what you’re going to get. Little snippets about me (I’m calling them founder facts, because alliteration is fun), mixed in with some pictures featuring ethical, local, and sustainable brands that I love. Because why not start the year off supporting other amazing brands? Collaboration over competition, baby!
Founder Fact #1 :: Before I was married, I would eat some variation of avocado toast for about 50% of my meals.
Who doesn’t love avocado toast? I mean, c’mon.
Founder Fact #2 :: I LOVE goal planning. But if I’m honest, I’m not always great at the follow through.
New Years Resolutions are my jam. Except I make way too many and I almost never keep them. The only time I did was when I went an entire year without purchasing new clothes. So worth it.
Founder Fact #3 :: I’m obsessed with personality tests.
I’m a 9w1 on the enneagram (hence my love for goal planning and organizing my life, and my inability to successfully follow through on my New Year’s Resolutions) and an INFJ on Myers Briggs (also called the Advocate). Read about them to know my deepest darkest secrets.
Founder Fact #4 :: I’m obsessed with Travel.
Someday, I’d like to say that I’ve been to every country (okay, at least half of them). So far, I’ve only been to 18 (will be 20 later this year 🥳🤘🏻🤘🏽🤘🏿).
Founder Fact #5 :: I probably listen to 15 or more podcast episodes a week.
Here are some of my favs (I couldn’t just pick one, sorry). Believed, Depolarize, Code Switch, Serial (esp, season 3), Skimm’d from the Couch, This Cultural Moment, The Bible Project, the Liturgists, the Moth. I listen to them all on apple podcasts, but these links will get you in the right direction if you’re interested.
Founder Fact #6 :: My go-to genre is Sci-fi
Despite the Star Wars reference in the first paragraph, I’m much more of a Star Trek kind of gal. To boldly go where no one has gone before…. I can’t resist it. 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏽♀️🤷🏿♀️
Founder Fact #7 :: I didn’t have a smart phone until 2016
I’ll never stop being proud of that. 🤣 Although, I am very appreciative of my smart phone now. It makes life as a business owner a heck-of-a-lot easier.
Okay, that’s enough about me. Tell me about YOU! If you’ve made it this far, I’d LOVE to hear some of the quirky things that make you lovely and unique. Comment below 👇🏻👇🏽👇🏿
