The holiday season is finally here. Can you believe it? It feels like just yesterday we were toasting to good health and happiness in 2016.
It’s no secret that Harness seeks to empower women, and one of our FAVORITE things to do is celebrate women-owned businesses. What better way to celebrate than to share a few from our beautiful hometown of Columbus, Ohio?
