I recently had the opportunity to moderate a panel for BlogHer Food where we heard from 3 trailblazing women on how they turned their passion into profit in the food industry. There was so much wisdom shared in our conversation, and BlogHer was generous enough to lend us this audio recording so you guys could access this panel discussion as well. The 3 amazing entrepreneurs you will meet today are Lori Taylor, Dzung Lewis, and Candace Nelson. You’ll get a chance to hear more about their impressive backgrounds when I introduce them on the panel. 

We chat about the vastly different ways they all got started, the 3 rules of business partnerships, and what people are craving right now more than ever. If you are a product based business, especially in the food space, or are wanting to create an established national brand, this episode is for you! So go grab a snack and stay tuned for the incredible insight these women share about turning their hobby into their career.
