Advice for Entrepreneurs
"Just start - there will never be the right time, so just do it! Whether you want to go back to work or school, start your own business or buy a house, your timing will never be perfect, but it will be right. Be brave - life is hard and you will get knocked down, but if you don't challenge yourself and make tough decisions, you won't have the chance to grow and expand. Be authentic - whatever you choose to do, make your brand/product/company reflect who you are. Consumers really want companies that they can trust and believe in."
A mom, eleven-time Ironman competitor and yoga enthusiast, Suzie spent years adhering to a low-fat diet only to hit a wall in her mid-40s. After reading Nina Teicholz’s best seller, Big Fat Surprise, she immediately shifted to a high-fat, low-carb diet, and felt better right away. While she loved the benefits of her new lifestyle, Suzie found it challenging to find convenient, good-fat snacks. Seeing a gap in the marketplace and a huge opportunity to help others through food, Suzie developed Love Good Fats, a company that produces high-fat, low-carb, and low-sugar products.
