Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

The consult was great and outside opinion was nice to hear. The write up of [Cary’s reviews were] very helpful in [allowing me to stay present in the consult and not having to take notes, giving me direction after our meeting.]

My love for houses and helping people has led me to choosing a career as a real estate agent. I grew up with a father who worked in the residential construction business which has allowed me to recognize both positive and negative aspects of housing. I feel it is very important to educate the buyer or seller about the process, listen to their needs/wants, and be their adviser. Buying or selling a house is a very important and challenging task to undertake. I will walk you through the entire process and make it as fun as possible while putting your needs in the forefront. I earn my client’s trust through honesty, patience, and hard work. I will see my clients needs through to the very end and will continue to provide value to the client even after a sale completes.
Beautycounter is a mission based company that launched in March of 2013. Beautycounter’s mission is to get “safer products into the hands of everyone.” You may be wondering what does that really mean. It means that Beautycounter is about educating and informing consumers on how to read their personal care labels. Beautycounter provides an option to choose safer products for you and your loved ones. Beautycounter has skincare, body care, kids and baby line and cosmetics.
The last federal law to regulate the ingredients in personal care products was in 1938. To date, the US have only banned 30 ingredients, whereas the European Union (EU) have banned 1400. Therefore, it is perfectly legal for personal care companies to include ingredients that are known to be harmful to our health. With that in mind, Beautycounter created a Never List that comprises over 1500 questionable or harmful ingredients that is prohibited when formulating their products. Beautycounter creates products with safety and performance in mind. When Beautycounter launched in 2013, there were 9 products; however now there are 90 products and more in the works.
I’ve been using Beautycounter for over 2 years and started as a consultant in July 2016. I decided to join as a consultant after my youngest daughter started Kindergarten. I wanted to find a job that would be super flexible so that I can still focus on being a stay-at-home Mom. I already loved using Beautycounter products, so I thought what better way to share the mission and help our family out financially.
If you’re interested in finding out more about Beautycounter, I’d love to chat with you. I also have products on hand for you to try. You may contact me through email [email protected] or phone 415.517.0112. Here’s my personal website for you to check out the products: beautycounter.com/dinasaiz Looking forward to meeting you!

Would you like your family to learn firsthand about another culture without incurring the expense of travel? Hosting a student with World Heritage will provide the opportunity to welcome a 16 year old student from another country, another continent, another culture, into your family. Each year we have at least 400 students apply to live with an American family because they want to get to know the real America, the one that only you can offer them. They want to become a part of your family and a part of your community, and to World Heritage, a family can be empty nesters, unmarried couples, and even singles! My family has hosted, and I now have 6 international daughters in addition to my own two adult daughters. I have worked with World Heritage as an Area Representative for 12 years, and I can help you select a student who will be a good fit with your family. We place students in Wake County Public Schools for the Junior year only, either for the Fall semester or for an entire academic year. We place all over North Carolina; I have helped families in Chapel Hill and Clayton welcome an international daughter to their families, too! If you reside in Wake County, though, you need to know that WCPSS has a hard deadline of July 31, and some schools have already filled their allotted seats. Contact me for information, and let’s talk about hosting! My email address is: [email protected]
Interested in a testimonial from the World Heritage website?
Being our first time to host, we had no idea what to expect. Although terribly excited about our new venture, we were a little nervous and unsure of how much initial awkwardness or time was needed for everyone to acclimate. From the moment we met Michela at the airport, she removed all hesitation and fears by immediately hugging us all. Having two boys and no daughters in the house was a new experience for us all, yet Michela made it so easy.

My name is Erica and I am a photographer specializing in fine art portraiture for newborn babies, children, and families. I serve Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina, and surrounding areas. I place the focus on your beautiful children and capture portraits that your family will treasure for generations.
My packages are created with purpose, to best meet the needs of a busy family. All newborn portrait packages include digital files with a print release, as well as professional quality prints and custom birth announcements. Why? Every family needs and wants digital copies of their portraits. Save them as a back up or use them to make prints and other gifts. Your family will surely be busy with a newborn baby in the house, however. It may be months, at least, before you find time to print your photos or design a birth announcement. My packages allow you to receive prints and announcements to enjoy right away, leaving you more time to enjoy your family.
Newborn portrait sessions can take place at my home studio in Fuquay Varina or in the comfort of your own home. Not sure which is right for you? Email me and I’ll help you figure out what the best fit is for your family.
If all newborn portraits look the same to you, an outdoor newborn portrait session may be perfect for your family. Not only can I complete your session indoors, but I am one of the few newborn photographers on the east coast who can do newborn sessions completely outdoors. If you appreciate the beauty of nature, there is nothing more breathtaking than your fresh new baby among the calming colors of nature. These unique sessions can be completed from April through October. Outdoor newborn sessions are my passion and I have a list of many beautiful locations in the Raleigh area for this type of session that are not well known, as well as a special collection of props and equipment handpicked to keep babies comfortable and happy outdoors. I have a passion for creating portraits with earth tone colors and simple props, giving my newborn photography a natural, organic feel.
Interested in booking a newborn portrait session or family portrait session? Mention this listing and get 10% off your session fee.
If you have any questions about professional photography or my sessions, please send me an email at [email protected]. You may also wish to visit my website at http://www.ericacourtinephotography.com.

Paw And Crossbones is a boutique line of personalized accessories for pets and their people. We specialize in travel gear that helps you and your pet get out the door quickly and in style.
My name is Monica Cavanaugh, and I created Paw And Crossbones because I got tired of hauling my sweet mutt’s stuff around in random grocery bags and old corporate totes.
I knew her “luggage” would need to be sturdy, roomy, and be personalized in case there were multiple dogs with her sitter. Thus, The Bundle was born.
The sturdy canvas tote is large enough to fit everything she could possibly need, even for extended stays. The organic muslin food sack holds 24 cups of food, keeping her well fed for several days. The treat bag holds her precious carrots (and occasional cookies, when she’s extra good.) And the stainless bowls are a handy extra so we don’t have to scramble to dismantle her little dining area.
We’re expanding the brand to carry different styles of bags, as well as accessories like custom leash hook signs, custom treat jars, and more! Please check out the Etsy site and follow us on Etsy and Facebook!
