Jean ThompsonCheck out this fabulous profile about Chocolate Chick Jean Thompson, CEO of Seattle Chocolate Company, in the February issue of Reflections magazine.  This profile shares her journey from stay-at-home mom to CEO, which is inspiring reading to say the least.

Jean is a member of the Bellevue Club and is one of the regulars in the club’s early morning spinning classes.  When I found that out, I immediately got in touch with the editor of the magazine because shining a light on its own members is a high priority.  Now, that story idea has turned into a fabulous profile, just in time to invite Valentine’s Day purchases.  Sometimes, it takes a few months to earn the thrill of the publicity you seek, and stories like this are well worth the wait.

Take heart knowing that 100% of the net profits from the sale of Survivor Chick Chocolates and the Extreme Dark Chocolate Truffle Bar are donated to women’s cancer charities.  That makes the choice of giving and receiving Seattle Chocolate Company chocolates this Valentine’s Day or any day especially good for the heart and the soul.

Speaking of which, Jean’s “Small Businesses Give Big” story is featured in a new book by the same title.

It’s all just great news for a Saturday evening.  Enjoy, and give Seattle Chocolates to your heart’s content today and every day.
