I’m humbly basking in the glow of Loyale’s San Francisco Chronicle Holiday Gift Guide spotlight in the Food + Wine section this past Sunday. This is not a moment to take lightly. Firstly, I’ve always aspired for our ethical products to be featured in my hometown paper, so it’s a dream come true. Secondly, I think it’s important to mention, I don’t have a publicist or connections in the industry. I work very hard at making databases and spend my time a lot emailing folks...98% of the time I don’t hear back from anyone. This particular feature was a stupendous, serendipitous, right-time-right-product-right-person turn of events and I feel extremely grateful. I say this mainly to encourage you to keep going and stay strong...whatever you’re diligently working at and investing your mind, body and soul into is worth it, and you never know when a positive development can take you to the next level.
