“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." ~ Nelson Mandela

The idea seems simple. Almost too simple. Give other people light so they can shine too. Share information about their businesses within your networks--extend and broaden the reach so we can ALL be heard and supported.

Say hello to this weeks featured Shine Your Light đź’ˇ businesses:

Ramat Wiley of Adun Spice Company 

Adun Spice Company: Ramat Wiley has created an exceptional line of spices that are sold in her shop at the Van Aken District Market Hall in Shaker Heights, as well as online. I’m a fan of Citrus Garlic, Fines Herbs, and Sazon blends and use them for marinades and seasoning.

Vintage Vision Cards

Pat Bennett and Pat Isenstadt

Vintage Vision Cards: Pat Isenstadt is the creator of a line of vintage themed cards as well as everyday cards for birthdays, holidays, get well and just because. Each card is meticulously hand crafted and the details are stunning. They really are keepsake cards worth framing.

Sweet Bean Candies

Sweet Bean: Kristin Barnes and her husband are the dynamic duo behind Sweet Bean. A bright, sun lit corner shop in Cleveland filled with hand painted bonbons, sweet treats, local products and just good vibes. Custom order for special events, weddings, holidays and parties—your guests will ooh and aah! Kristin is also the genius behind the Pear Ginger Spiced Pat’s Granola bonbons.

 Rough Around the Etched glassware

Rough Around the Etches: This is Katsie O’Neills dream business. “Locally inspired & sassy etched glass products including unique drinking glasses, mugs, tumblers and lanterns hand made in Cleveland, Ohio.” She’s also created custom etched jars for Pat’s Granola. 

Proud to know these owners and support their businesses. Who do YOU know that would be a great Shine Yoir Light đź’ˇ featured business? Let me know!
