Project 658 was deliberately selected not only because it’s a beautiful space and best suited to execute the vision I have for Simply the Success, but also due to the beautiful things they are doing beyond their walls. Project 658 provides services for at-risk families in Charlotte, moving them sustainability, with a key focus on the International and refugee communities. Having a charitable component to Simply the Success was imperative as I believe all businesses are far more successful when they lift up the community around them, specifically by partnering with non-profits.
