Bonnita has been inspiring people at our downtown stores for a while – maybe she’s even inspired you!

In 2013, she made a drastic lifestyle change and a commitment to exercise for just 4% of her day (or one hour). Soon, that blossomed into a love for running and a life philosophy: “Be the 4%.”

The idea that you can commit 4% of your day, just a small portion, to any goal and attain it through consistency has been a driving force in her life since then.

Our Operations Manager, Toni explains,  “You cannot meet Bon and not love her.  She is an amazing person and a great barista, and so much fun to work with and laugh with.  But more than anything, her commitment to fitness and changing her own life has been inspiring to watch. Bon is the perfect example of someone who woke up one day and decided to take control of her own life and for that, she is so much happier and healthier.  She encourages and helps folks everyday by sharing her story, more than she even knows.”
