entrepreneurial spirit

Two qualities that I deeply admire are creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.  My friend Shelby recently started a company with a few friends and has proven that she has both. I am so impressed and proud of them for acting on their idea. For turning their passion into a reality. For taking risks. And for working hard to fulfill their dream. 

Their company is called FiveHumans. Their mission is to raise awareness of life threatening diseases through interesting and inspiring apparel. The diseases they have chosen are asthma, cancer, diabetes and heart disease – although they hope to add to that list in the future.  Their t-shirts feature bold facts and statements to spark interest and start conversations (click here to view heart diesease example). In addition to spreading the word and raising awareness, they have identified charitable organizations for each of their causes and will be donating 10% of the sale price to those organizations. 

So, check out their website – spread the word. Support a local Seattle business and help raise awareness of diseases that impact us all.  And for goodness sake, if you have a business idea – go for it.  Don’t be afraid to follow your dream. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
