“I was so hesitant to partner and go into the licensing world because I have these expectations for what I wanted the social impact to be, what I wanted the giving element to be and, for me, those were strict and non-negotiable,” says Yarbro. “So having a team by my side to emulate that same energy of what we wanted from a brand was so important ... You watch any of my YouTube channels; I have very high standards for what I expect out of brands and my own brand just needed to go above and beyond even that. That’s why our relationship works.”
