When investing, your capital is at risk.
Ringing in 2021 felt a little different for all of us this year. But if the mayhem that was 2020 taught us anything, it’s just how important it is to care for our health, the health of those around us, and our planet.
So in the spirit of moving forward, we’ve put together a list of some of the incredible startups that will make it easier to keep up with your resolutions, and move forward with positivity and mindfulness.
