I can't say enough good things about Rachel. Though I've known her for more than half my life, I'm constantly blown away by how she uses her talents to give back to the community and the world. She's truly an amazing woman — and she's currently doing some pretty fantastic stuff with a non-profit called Rescue Freedom that's committed to freeing women and children from sex trafficking.

Needless to say — I'm proud to call this woman my friend.

I get it. Starbucks is a big-box chain. There’s one on every corner. They aren’t ‘unique.’ Howard Shultz let the Sonics leave Seattle.

I understand all the arguments against Starbucks. And, I love me some mom-and-pop local shopping.

But here’s the deal — I also really like Starbucks. Sure, I’m not going get some ultra-inspiring experience at the green mermaid. But it offers a few things that make it invaluable in my world.

1. Free Internet
2. Consistency
3. Holiday Panini
4. Mobile Office
5. Free (or Cheap) Refills
6. Rewards Program
7. Dog-Friendly

Which Starbucks do I like the absolute best? The on Lake Union! Follow the link in my profile to find out why.

Are you a fellow Starbucks lover? What would you add to my list?

Who inspires you?

I'm lucky enough to have quite a few amazing people in my life, not the least of whom is Chelsea Farmer. Her raw honesty and perseverance are a constant motivation to be the best version of myself.

Lady, you're a boss 👏 👏 👏
