What inspires you most about the work you do?

At its core, Intentionalist is about connecting people and building community. From the small businesses whose stories we share, to consumers, companies, and nonprofit organizations who care, we believe that the money we spend is an investment in the world that we want. I am most inspired by the people I've met on our journey to date - small business owners who exemplify grit and grace, people in the community who share how we're making it easier for them to align their values with the money they spend, and corporate leaders who are stepping up to explore how their organizations can do their part to support a more vibrant local economy.

How can someone engage or get involved with your organization/mission?
