Helping businesses and organizations achieve “triple bottom line” performance using Lean and Six Sigma
We are committed to sustainability, which can be summarized by the concept of the Triple Bottom Line:
People – Nonprofits, society and community
Planet – Environment
Profit – Finances
When businesses make decisions that maximize all three areas (not just profit), they move towards a business that is rewarding to work at (for employees) and work with (for customers). As a result, your business is more likely to survive the ups and downs of the economy. It may seem strange, but when you stop focusing on profits and focus on people and the environment, it actually improves your profitability in the long run.
We partner with other consultants and experts to provide you with the right resources for the right situation and skill sets, which allows us to avoid delays and/or inferior service.

Founded in 2016, Limeadestand Works empowers people by facilitating a process of discovering their own voices and personal power, curating their stories, and helping them reclaim their own inner sparks. We are a public relations and brand communications service for independent artists, crafters, and makers who seek a path toward their own creative liberation.
We promote human dignity through micro-enterprise.
Limeadestand Works’ program is three-fold:
1. Discover one’s sparks and restore human dignity through our Personal Narratives Studio–a cross between personal branding consultation and spiritual directions.
2. At our Creative Liberation Lab, learn how to start and run one’s own small business with little or no start-up capital requirement, even if you have zero access to banking or financing. The academy provides personalized mentorship, continuing access to support, and a community of peers on the journey.
3. For new and established businesses (and community organizations) we offer comprehensive brand communications and brand management service, from facilitated brainstorming sessions at the inception stage to long-range brand engagement and public relations. This includes content creations and curation, social media strategy and management, event planning, and other components to help business owners communicate their stories and share their experiences with an engaged audience.
In 2018, we have opened the Floy Preslar Gallery, where emerging visual artists can gain professional experiences as a working, exhibiting artist and develop their artistic career. In conjuction with the gallery’s mission to discover and showcase emerging artists, we also help foster a vibrant arts and cultural scene in Columbia County, Oregon.
The founder brings to the world a unique combination of her unconventional life experiences as a journalist, a visual artist, a graphic designer, a political activist, a community organizer, a world citizen, a theologian, and a clergyperson–who has experienced both a life of privilege and that of an extreme poverty. The works of Limeadestand Works is rooted in both religious and political values for the liberation of every human being.
We also welcome new and continuing partnership with a wide variety of community groups, faith communities, and social enterprises to further our missions.
I have been organizing the Social Entrepreneurs Meetup – PDX for several years and every month it’s a fun learning experience. If you are introverted, you will find our networking process is extremely easy and low stress. No other organization does networking like we do it. Come and experience it for yourself.

ServiceStoreUSA.com is a unique service which can be thought of as an Etsy.com for local people to buy and sell services.
Our goal is to help all who want to grow their income. Too many self-motivated, ambitious people have been let down by our low wage, low job growth economy.
