What inspired you to start your business?
I looked for chemical free, sustainable, practical food storage containers. When I couldn’t find them, I decided to create them.
What has been your proudest moment thus far?
So many little milestones, it’s hard to pick one. My first sale, my first award, my first retailer, my first freight container- all are proud moments and each was huge at the time.
Entrepreneurship often comes with a boatload of challenges, what has been your biggest challenge thus far? cashflow to support a growing company. Grow requires more capital. It’s hard to secure capital when you’re a small company.
If you could give any piece of advice to a new entrepreneur, what would it be? Make sure you have good personal credit- it opens more doors allows banks to trust you.
