The Pineapple is the official mascot of The Social Crown. Being Southern born and raised, I've always known the Pineapple is the symbol of Hospitality. In the Colonial days, having the crowned fruit at a social event meant that you were in a welcoming space of friendship. Today, in the South, the symbol of hospitality carries on.
I’ve always had a naturally curious mind. When I’d come across something I loved, whether it be a local store, a new book, or a new perspective, I always wanted to know EVERYTHING about how it came to pass.
I wanted to know the owner, the author, how the idea sparked, what was the process to bring their dream to reality.
Simply put, I’m intrigued with the WHY.
It didn’t take me long to connect the dots— once I knew and respected someone’s WHY, I instantly became their champion! I wanted to support them, I’d share with all my friends and all over social. I believed in their dream as if it were my own. Not enough people (or businesses) have caught onto this unique way of selling. And for service based businesses, giving your potential client a peek behind the curtains, and answering their WHY upfront is for a must.
So, my curiosity (read: nosey-ness) led me to my passion— getting to tell stories about businesses and connecting them with their own champions. Building better communities and deeper connections.
