The Continuing Story of Chase’s Edible Tchotchkes

Chase knows that his customers look on Facebook to learn more about the products they buy so he went

and set up a page. Now he needs to understand how his business page is different than running his personal Instagram account.


Be sure to check in on all our Foodtrepreneur emails as he progresses through the workshop topics for his

prospective business, Chase’s Edible Tchotchkes.


*Please note: Chase was not harmed during the marketing of this series.  He also was compensated for his work throughout the photo shoots.  

He is finding it hard to make the products, run the business and manage social media. He is starting to think that if he can’t afford to hire help,

he won’t be able to make this dream a reality. His human mom’s smile is growing.

NHDP - Chris Sununu & GOP Executive Councilors Vote To Defund Planned Parenthood

Chris Sununu Votes Against Funding Critical Health Services Even After Admitting Women In His District Have No Options Besides Planned Parenthood
Concord, N.H. – After Kelly Ayotte voted for the third time to defund Planned Parenthood, Chris Sununu and Republicans on the Executive Council today followed Ayotte’s lead, voting to defund Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire.
“Following Kelly Ayotte’s lead, Chris Sununu and the Republican Executive Council voted today to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides critical health services to more than 12,000 New Hampshire women including cancer screenings, breast exams and birth control,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Lizzy Price. “By voting to attack women’s health, Chris Sununu proved that he is more concerned with his own political interests and trying to win a primary for higher office than he is with the health and economic wellbeing of New Hampshire women and families.”
“Even Sununu himself conceded that women in his district have no other choice for the critical health services that Planned Parenthood provides, and it's unconscionalbe that Sununu voted to defund those services. Governor Hassan worked across party to restore funding for Planned Parenthood after the last time Republican men on the Executive Council attacked women’s health services, and Granite Staters will once again hold Republicans accountable for their wildly out-of-touch attacks on critical health services for New Hampshire women and families,” added Price.
