We're getting close univer time. You Run into nonprofit VESTA success you run on a for profit. Rivoli meals a little bit about the difference between really like just being in love with culinary and being a chef versus actually running the mechanics of the business. Wow you know. It's funny because it's so hard to put down knife sometime And let somebody else pick it up. And that's been my biggest my biggest hurdle. Because I'm so passionate about what I do. I love. I love experimenting and playing. And what I've done now. Just kind of sit moon side. My little playtime Where I cut cook and play the way I want to and You know I'm still part of the process in a lot of ways with with Because when it comes to the training and introduction then you know mind. Mapping Menus mapping opportunities But it's been really you've been a shoe transition because I'm so used to be into worker. I'm so used to being the person who gets done to the person on relying for somebody else to get it done. That is a that is a tough tough transition From a worker to I guess I'm GonNa call you but a leader Below trend found that I think a lot of struggle with that. Because we're getting their hands dirty and making things happen all the time we that. Let us to stay in an often a distance and watching things happen. Well you know it's funny is that we're used to working with our troops not watching our troops work And in the NCO. Course I mean that's what they teach you know you you don't you don't do anything that they couldn't do or they can't do And so does mindset. You know it's a great thing to a degree because you know. Sometimes I have to be in thirty other places than cutting carrots you know and I'm not crazy. I really Wanna cut those carriage though because I love it But it's it's been amazing journey I'm excited for what we're about to do. Were really you know my focus community impact through the nonprofits to impact the business It's going to be different model. You know a lot of company companies wants you to ship all over the United States. We're not going to go that route lease. That's not my goal I want to impact community input. Higher veteran drivers hire veterans at Coke's hired veterans and their spouses We're actually open up Bets Houston says POPs before South This year GRANDPA really seen that day. Too they go through transition and they need reintegration so Hopefully we'll be hiring revenue meal soon and You know that makes some difference in their lives as well. Because it's a dude. I you know I saw. My mom leaves the military. My Dad did. My mom lost all her friends. She lost all her. You know her sisters and you know people around her so you know it. It affects the family. Yeah so So Brian Did you guys ever experiment on the farming side together. Experience with the micro Greens grown your own micro. Greens that kind of thing. Yeah we actually were looking into micro green table on the actually was a big thing That we were going to get into on DNA chef Michael Greens or something. I use on a regular basis actually In blends I know blends and flavors and Pungency and Acidity and these types of things at certain breeds so We're definitely going to have that program coming back up And we're actually going to be more focused and That's dollar production microbiome production we did. We did tomatoes strawberries past years Just to see you know what the more so of what the community loved it. What they liked We did very well. Restaurants received the product very well And so we're hoping to jump back into the game with a small start up again To be able to continue to make revenue for the nonprofit as well as our our fears shelters insiders that we want to produce in the future. There's a guy here in Kansas City. We've been talking with He his companies biogen egg and has trailers or connex boxes different sizes totally self contained h VAC climate temperature controlled and in. He uses no soil and no late getting tied to an alcoholic for all our gross systems. I just think it's a better better way. No issue with permaculture is that we're running out of land in most of the I hate to say it like this lovely becoming contaminated or even stripped of all its natural material And so we've taken so much from the ground. We haven't been back that we have to get to let let it sit and we have to come up with new innovative approaches in order to not continue to hurt land. We love well. Hey Brown. We're about out of time If you if you're talking to the guys in the military by get out someone going through transition look into starting on profit looking to go into business for themselves.
