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.

Shawn Banzhaf | Author & Assistant Director of Student Success at the Pat Tillman Veterans Center at Arizona State University

My book The Five Ls: A Practical Guide for Helping Loved Ones Heal After Trauma is written from the veterans perspective after I came home from war in Iraq. I suffered from many of the symptoms of PTSD and I lay out very practically how my wife did these five things to help me walk through that. It is a journey of course and it is a continual walk to healing. My thoughts in creating the frame work I lay out is to make a difference in helping slow the suicide rate in the veteran population which is hovering around 20 a day. Read more>>

Geries Shaheen | Owner/Founder/Executive Director/Psychotherapist

I started my business out of a desire to better shape the mental health industry in my local area. I realized after 10 years in the non profit industry that mental health as business and mental health as a non profit entity could work together to impact the community. At that time, larger agencies practiced this, but smaller private practices were fearful to engage in this manner. Read more>>

Elizabeth Urabe | Spiritual Midwife and Abstract Artist Extraordinaire

Art is only as transformational as the level of Consciousness it both reflects and embodies. Urabe Spirit Art is 100% alive with some of the most powerful living, breathing energies in the world. Real change can ONLY come about when the spiritual consciousness of the people on the planet is awake and integrated enough for them to remember the Truth that we are all part of one human family. From the inside out. All problems have one cause and thus only one solution. There is NOTHING more potentially purifying than an art form that embodies pure Consciousness. The business that I am in the process of expanding to a global level is literally going to help transform the very fabric of humanity.🙏 Read more>>

Ken Braband | Kayak Instructor and volunteer

I started Liquid Adventuring eight years ago as a way to share my love for the outdoors, especially through kayaking. The rapid growth of paddling sports in recent years has encouraged many people to take part, which is great. Unfortunately, too many of them do so without recognizing the risks that often accompany the rewards. That’s why, over the years I have kept my instructor certifications and industry knowledge up-to-date with recognized best practices. Read more>>

Lisa Horne | Published Cookbook Author, Podcast Host, Blogger and Holistic Nutritionist

32 Million Americans have food allergies. That’s 1 in 10 adults, and 1 in 13 children. Food allergies can be life-threatening (anaphylactic), and there is no cure. Food allergies are not taken seriously, and our community has a tough time getting buy-in and understanding. Often mistaken for food intolerances, and fad diets, there is a lot of confusion.
