Sanara Skincare was developed by founder Rebekah Jasso Jensen after she had dealt with Psoriasis for 15 years.

Swag.com was founded in early 2016 when co-founders Jeremy Parker and Josh Orbach noticed that the current swag market was filled with things that didn’t resonate with its current buyer- often times a twenty-something year old assigned with the task of purchasing branded items for their newly coveted position at a swanky company. Parker and Orbach recognized a few things about these young buyers that other promotional product companies didn’t: these buyers didn’t want to speak to anyone on the phone, they wanted a curated selection of only the best items, and they wanted to feel competent in ordering a product that was exclusive to them. Now, just 4 years after launch, Swag.com has grown to 35 employees and brings in $7m in sales.

In honor of March being Women's History Month I thought I would reflect on some of the women in my community who inspire me. Some of these women I've met personally, and some of them I admire from a distance- (I see you girl- keep doing you!). I think that as a woman it's important to honor and recognize when we see others doing something that inspires us. Even if it's something we would never pursue ourselves, the fact that watching someone else can give us the energy and motivation to create a life that we love living, is pretty amazing.
