Most of the media often paints all businesses with a single stroke, but in our experience businesses are each unique and so many of them are focused on making the world a better place. We’ve highlighted a few such gems below.

Ronny LeJeune & Michelle Lowe | Certified Pet Nutritionists

Our pets and working animals are a massive part of our society and our daily lives. They provide companionship, therapy, task assistance and safety.

Perfectly Rawsome provides nutrition consultation and diet formulation for dogs and cats. Our focus is providing pet owners the means to feed a balanced homemade diet, be it home cooked or raw food.

My business provides that connection to people who’s voice is less heard. I help small businesses showcase their work and impact through thought-provoking visuals. My films allow viewers to easily digest information and understand concepts. And through the internet, these films can be consumed all around the world for people to learn from. Read more>>

Andrew Hall | Cosmetic Dentist

Smile with confidence is the tag line for my business or brand. This also directly relates with how we help the world. We are social creatures yet often times we have things that hold us back from being confident in a social setting or for that matter just feeling confident in who we are as people. Our smile is something that we share daily with everyone we come in contact with. Read more>>

Jessica Day | Founder of Being A Girl Is Hardcore, high school English teacher, & cat mom.

I was influenced to create Being A Girl Is Hardcore by a variety of factors. The first was seeing my close friend coming forward about her abuser, who was within our music community and friends with all of us. The next was seeing women rip each other apart for so long and then seeing a new wave of younger ladies helping each other crowd surf at a show. I knew that I wanted to create something to bring women together to support each other and aid in creating a safe space within a music scene that often has predators and abusers. Read more>>

Becca Smith | Adventure Elopement Photographer | Travelfor2photography

What comes to mind when you hear the term elopement? Do you see a couple running away in secret to get married because their parents don’t approve? Do you picture a couple spontaneously getting hitched in Vegas? Or quickly signing a piece of paper at the courthouse? Elopements tend to be misunderstood by many as the wedding industry has shifted the term to mean something completely different. The term is no longer clouded with judgement, embarrassment or shame. Quite frankly, it’s the exact opposite. My business helps the community and the world by showing couples a completely new and unique way of getting married. Read more>>

Pat Kofahl | Custom Framing, Printmaking and Photo Restoration

We help the world by helping our community. We help our community by providing services that impact their lives and sense of well-being on a daily basis. Human memory can be fragile and ephemeral in nature. Thats why we have things like diaries, photographs, movies, music and the like. Many of us have become experts in acquiring memorable events – we take trips, we watch our children grow up and become adults, we compile scrapbooks and thousands of images on our phones, yet somehow we seldom get a chance to look at and savor these precious memories. That’s where we come in. Read more>>
