The LA Galaxy and Omega Accounting Solutions have teamed up to champion small businesses in Los Angeles County and Orange County. To help tell the small business story, three Galaxy players visited three small businesses to learn their stories. Small business owners taught our players the unique joys and struggles of running a small business.

Fashion-forward fan-favorite Raheem Edwards ventures to Venice to visit Barely Canadian, a clothing brand focusing on super soft fabrics. Raheem spent the day at Barely Canadian’s HQ – founder Kelly Slattery’s family home – to learn about the design process and try on some clothes.

Veteran Uri Rosell trades cleats for oven mitts at Natas Pastries in Sherman Oaks – LA’s premier Portuguese bakery. Founder Fatima Marques teaches Uri to make their signature Pastel de Nata – a favorite of Uri’s during his years spent playing in Portugal.

Homegrown defender Jalen Neal visits Sayler Studios in Costa Mesa to get a lesson in interior design, even getting to try his hand at decorating a set of shelves with design lessons he learned from founder, Beth Sayler.
