Rolande Sumner and I became fast friends through the Indie Business Network. She opened her business, Butter Angels, LLC., a bit over a year ago, and I just fell in love with her enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge. We started with speaking to each other through the IBN forum, but quickly began messaging and calling one another. Our professional relationship morphed into a true friendship, and I am ever grateful to have met such an intelligent, ambitious, compassionate, giving woman and fellow entrepreneur.
Rolande has had an interesting journey into entrepreneurship, including beginning her career in the military. One of Rolande’s, and Butter Angels’, main goals is to support fellow women veterans. Much of Rolande’s work is based in charity, including the KEY P.E.A.R.L.S. Youth Mentorship Program of Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority Inc; this program supports and mentors little girls so they grow to become intelligent and strong women. Butter Angels, like Bath, Body, Candle Moments, is certified by Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free International, and they donate a portion of sales to the Leaping Bunny program, as well. There is no shortage of charity involved in Butter Angels, which is just one of the reasons why I personally love Rolande’s business.
I purchase from Butter Angels, and I am a huge fan of their lip moisturizers and lotion bars, which are completely natural, moisturizing, and totally fabulous. I encourage you to listen to Rolande’s interview because she is a true American dream and inspiration. Of course, you absolutely need to try Butter Angels’ products!
