I am extremely humbled and excited to bring this news to you today. Growing alongside M. Hisae has been the greatest gift I have ever received. It's been at my side, tethered to my soul, every day for almost a decade. And surely before that, as it was finding its way into the world. I am completely aware that each day I spend exploring and nurturing this gift is a privilege. And that it's so rhythmically in tune with my home that is safe, my body and mind that are healthy, and my friends and family that care for me.
I will always keep compassion at the core of M. Hisae. Sa Ta Na Ma: peace begins with me. The #1 way to succeed in business is to be nice to people. And the Earth, and the animals. Take a breath, walk away. Peace begins with me.
Peace also begins with my business, and if the health of my business depends on making money, then M. Hisae's money carries this same energy. I'm thrilled to announce that I will be making monthly charitable donations equal to 2% of total online sales. That's gross sales, not net sales, so the maximum amount possible will be donated. I chose online sales because we must use the internet for good, and that transactions and hugs outside of the internet, between you and I in real life, are inherently powerful on their own.
