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.

Tamara Meyer | Pole instructor, Event coordinator, & Reptile enthusiast

Well, there are a few things… with all things the one thing I do in common that helps the community is by helping others face fear and become a better version of themselves. I do events. Not just events, but My husband and I help the community by giving them an opportunity to experience, learn, and grow. The great experiences we provide sheds a positive light on our industry and helps change people’s minds about reptiles and “exotics”. Believe it or not, there are those who actually do not like these animals based on JUST fear. Our goal is to help change people’s minds and turn their fears into fascination. With these great experiences, we strike passion. We educate the public about these great creatures and what we can do to be responsible keepers. We want more people to care about and love these animals instead of fearing them. We promote reptile owners to be responsible keepers. Read more>>

Mara Hauser | Founder and CEO

When 25N Coworking launched in 2015, I envisioned it as a way to ignite collaboration and productivity in the workplace. As an interior designer by trade, I wanted to create elaborate spaces that allowed people and businesses the opportunity to enhance the way they operate and create success within their organizations. So, when the COVID-19 pandemic began, everything changed. No one knew what to do, and everyone had to make extreme life changes, especially when it came to millions of people working and doing everything from home. Now, almost two years into the pandemic, burnout is real. People are tired of looking at the same four walls in their house or apartment and calling it “going to the office.” I believe that our coworking spaces give people the option to get out of the house and alleviate some of that burnout.

Yvette Blair-Lavallais | Food Justice Scholar and Activist

We Knead Bread is a faith-based response to food deserts, food insecurity and food injustice. It looks at the root causes and asks the question of why is this happening and what can we do about it. I convene and participate in national conversations that address the disparities in food insecurity, looking at it through a faith lens. Food insecurity affects millions of people globally and thousands of people in North Texas. You’d be surprised at the number of people in our communities who do not have access to fresh, affordable, healthy food. It’s really more complicated than you might even know. There are barriers that prohibit access and sometimes those barriers are in the form of policies that prioritize one area of the city over another area in terms of whether or not there are full-scale grocery stores in every community.

Kyler Robertson | Owner Operator

We work specifically with farmers, ranchers, land developers, builders and residents to help grow the community. We come in and clear the heavy brush and trees in order for space to build. We provide an eco friendly land clearing experience without the expensive hauling off or burning on the property. Beautifying the land is a way to give back, trimming larger trees and making nature become enjoyable for families. Read more>>
