You all know I wax poetic about entrepreneurial life being about connection and ever since I relocated to the Bay Area it’s more important than ever. In September, I left my cushy, well-connected life in Raleigh and moved back to SF after 17 years of living in NYC and North Carolina. I have no problem being a small fish in a large pond, I just want to have a school of fish to keep me company. So for the past months I’ve been getting out on the town, meeting and greeting and hammering away at creating a little community. I won’t lie, it’s not easy putting myself out there constantly and I’m certain a lot of people think I’m really extra, but it’s not slowing me down, because creating the life you want for yourself takes work and sometimes feeling uncomfortable for the greater good.
This being said, that’s how Catherine of Bestowe Gifting, based in Oakland, and I met - good, old fashion outreach…which is to say, cold emailing and writing, “What’s up, I love your company, want to collaborate?” I’m pleased to report, she was game and Loyale’s biggest, most elaborate giveaway was devised with our combined elbow grease and wherewithal. Visit our IG page and enter today or tomorrow, with four total prizes valued at close to $1,000, you won’t be disappointed!
