Our guests this morning are Heidi Butzine and Khryste Langlais.

Heidi is a best-selling author, entrepreneur, wine aficionado and shop local maven. Her most recent book, Shop Local: A Practical Pain-Free Guide to Shopping with Purpose, is part of her personal mission to get more people to support local businesses everywhere and strengthen the communities where they work and live. She is the founder of ShopLocal.us and Certified Locally Owned™ and creator of Wineopolis® Citizen's Guide wine travel book series. Heidi earned her executive MBA from UCLA and her bachelors degree from Cal State University, Dominguez Hills. 

Khryste Langlais is the owner of BabyCakes Baking Company in Torrance.  Her love for baking started in childhood and eventually resulted in the opening of her bakery in 2007. As a self-taught baker, Khryste finds that she is influenced mostly by traditional Southern dessert flavors, but her wicked sweet tooth means there is a wide variety in her cupcake menu.  Khryste’s specialty is big, bold flavors and creamy, not too sweet frostings.  

ShopLocal.us has just announced the kick-off of their second annual Small Indie Business Grant program.  Heidi will tell us how that works while Khryste, being one of the winners of last year’s grant award, will explain how it helped to move her business forward.
