Cheers! Raising a Glass to 3 Small Business Owners This Month

At C&C, we believe there are few things more admirable than people who monetize their side hustle. In many cases, side gigs manifest into full-fledged careers, and small businesses. That trajectory requires a lot of hard work, late nights, and long-term commitment. So, we bow our hats to the side-hustler’s out there who put their heads down and make sh*t happen for themselves.

We had the pleasure of spending the evening with some small business owners at our intimate dinner in Miami. We discussed humble beginnings, missteps, and what the future has in store—we left feeling truly inspired. So, we partnered with Smirnoff Spiked Sparkling Seltzer to raise a glass in celebration of our current small-business crushes. These little cans of sugarless cocktails are the perfect drink for summer with flavors ranging from Berry Lemonade to Cranberry Lime. Did we mention our event attendees loved them?  There’s no better way to celebrate one another than giving a shoutout to those we admire with tasty cocktails that are under 90 calories. Take a look below to see who we’re highlighting.

Danielle Barkhausens

Influencer and owner of not one but two small businesses, Danielle Barkhausen really shines under our spotlight. She has been able to embody her passion for fashion and love for coffee by starting her own clothing line and boutique cafe pop-up company. Who says she can’t do it all?!

Danielle Bernstien

Many of us recognize the handle @weworewhat for Danielle Bernstien’s iconic style and entrepreneurial charm. Bernstien has filled the white space in the fashion market with her notable overall line, Second Skin Overalls. Not to mention, she has partnered with Onia to bring us some incredible swimwear that repeatedly sells out. We can’t wait to see what is next on her agenda.

Vanessa Zambito

Vanessa Zambito’s love for fashion and stylish Instagram feed turned this successful influencer into a small business owner. Her clothing company, From VZ,  has Vannessa written all over it and we can’t get enough of her graphic tees.
