Joey Arora @JosephArora

I am passionate about community building, collaboration and enabling others to be the best they can be. I joined the Air Force because I want to know what it means to protect our freedoms before I improve them. I am building my own company called Unity for People, where my goal is to identify and bring together the movers, shakers, dreamers and do'ers in every community. I want to change the world by building communities, and I believe entrepreneurship is the way to make the world a better place for people. Enabling people who foster innovation and change is critical to our success as a society, and I want to create a community that makes it easy for people to connect with each other.

Match My Monogram


We recently created a much needed online marketplace, www.matchmymonogram.com, to solve the problem of what to do with mint condition monogrammed items that for one reason or another are no longer in use. This situation arises more than you may realize; you get married and acquire a new last name, your child outgrows his gingham Fourth of July outfit with his giant initial on the pocket, or you inherit Aunt Esther's fine china but your cabinet is filled with your own prized pieces. Match My Monogram takes the burden off of the consignor by finding that person out there with the same name who loves your personalized style. We do this with personalized care, so you don't stick your once-loved items into a closet or drawer with hopes that someone with the same name will come along and love it as much as you did. We also have partnered with and are able to work as a custom clearinghouse for many businesses that create personalized products and may have too many old samples or unfortunate monogram mishaps. For example, a local boutique personalizes Sarah's beautiful dress and accidentally has her name misspelled as Sara or the initial order is wrong on ZTC's briefcase. My business is new, only a few months old, but it is catching on nationwide as an ideal, easy way to upcycle unused personalized pieces. We are valued by sellers and buyers alike. We reach a wide variety of audiences; the fashionistas, the mom, the name enthusiasts, the recycler and the heirloom lover. Find your match!
