Podcast Episode 009: Fashion & Philanthropy with Alma Mei

Hey Glowers!

This episode of Go and Glow! is an interview with fashionpreneurs Gaby Ortega and Liz De La Cruz-Jean of Alma Mei, an online fashion boutique that donates a percentage of every purchase to non-profit organizations. How cool is that, right!?

‘Alma’ which means ‘Soul’ in Spanish and ‘Mei’ which means ‘Beautiful’ in Mandarin expresses the spirit of the woman who embraces her sense of fashion as well as her sense of purpose. The Alma Mei girl doesn’t just look good – she gives back to her community. Check out the hashtag #LookGoodDoGood to see the ‘Beautiful Souls’ out there spreading awareness for different causes.

Based in Miami, Gaby and Liz share their entrepreneur and philanthropic journey, the impact their brand has had on the fashion community and the Latina community, and jewels on relationship building and collaboration. They also give great tips on how to manage a full-time job, a family and a personal life all while running a business.

One Special Way to Say Thank You and I’m Thinking of You

posted in: Life Coach, Shop | 2

Hey, Glowers!

Today’s essentials for my arsenal includes:

1. A 314-page special edition O Magazine book called Dream Big.

2. My journal.

3. My personalized Thank You notes that I’m writing to a few people today.

When I was little, a friend of our family bought me my first personalized stationery set, to which my grandparents then taught me about the importance of hand-writing ‘thank you’s’ and ‘thinking of you’ cards to people I’m grateful for. That stationery set and life lesson were 2 of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received.

And my close friends, family and even a few favorite former coworkers probably have about 5 of these kinds of cards from me over the years (that’s how many sets I’ve had! Ha!)

I like to sit down and let God use me to write to people I’m thinking about and grateful for and let them know. No special holiday is needed. Gratitude is my attitude.

So who are you gonna write to today? Or who can you encourage? I challenge you to spread some love and light today and hand-write a personal letter or card to that person you’re grateful for and thinking about. Appreciation and edification is a beautiful thing.

Until the next post, GO and GLOW!
