What's your role at Hand in Hand?

I am the CEO & Co-Founder.  I am in charge of overseeing everything we do.  While it is my job to make the hard decisions, more importantly, it's my job to listen to those around me.  Good ideas come from everywhere, you just need to pay attention.

What is your favorite part about working for Hand in Hand?

I love our team.  While there are only 4 of us, we all get along wonderfully, understand the long term vision of the brand, and do our best to make work as fun as possible.  Hand in Hand would be nothing without this small, dedicated team.

What is your proudest moment at Hand in Hand?

I have many.  I could say the first time we got a PO from Anthropologie, or Target.  I could also say the very first time we donated soap to orphans in Haiti, which deeply impacted my life and the way I see the world.  I could also mention the daily pleasure I get from watching our small, dedicated team take pride and ownership over everything we do.  I am proud of what we do, every day.

What do you like to do on your days off?

Most recently, I enjoy spending time giggling and being silly with my 6 month old daughter.

Top 3 life highlights?

Getting married to Courtney, watching the birth of my daughter Finley, and traveling.

What are you currently reading/listening to/ watching?

I don't have time for that.  When I do, I enjoy listening to romantic french music.

How do you define success?

By doing the best you can possibly do, and putting your all into something.  I do not measure success by outside standards.  Success is a metric you much achieve at the individual level, specific to your person.

We didn’t start a business to make personal care products. We started it to make a difference. In 2011, millions of children were dying each year from water-related illnesses that could be prevented with hand washing alone. So we got an idea: what if we could create a soap that could also save lives? With that, our BUY ONE, GIVE BACK program (and company) were born.
