Favorite Daughter...favorite things! 

After all, this is Favorite Daughter. And about that name. I'm the youngest of three kids and the only girl. My dad loves to introduce me as 'his favorite daughter' and it just seemed like a perfect name for my business consulting work. As a company focused on smaller businesses, we tend to become family. On this page you will find great brands, interesting products, wonderful businesses. Stop by often it's an ever-evolving list. I have intentionally added women-owned and black-owned companies. If you have something you think people need to know about, send me a note. angela@favoritedaughterllc.com
