Hey guys how are you. That was a mouthful doing pretty well. Pretty loud We'll talk be talking like you said mouthful already but that's great. We've gotten to know so much about you but telephone little bit about yourself and how. Oh you think came an accidental entrepreneur well Actually actually entrepreneurship wasn't I intended hats. Yes I spent almost ten years trying to be from a doctor and I actually Started a business out of my home kitchen. That's pretty cool. Yeah so my very first business is called healthy Mama and I was cooking for some friends and I had already been cooking for myself and some friends were like. You're already doing this for yourself herself and we would love to do it for us. 'cause I don't WanNa Cook for myself and were to do it and I was like okay great. You know I'm at at home and I need some income because I'm military south and these kids and My first company was pretty much born after that. Wow Wow that's very cool. So that's healthy Mama in for that was your first company So there had been a little bit of growing pains or some big lessons lessons that you learned When you when you launch that company so talk to us a little bit more about about that and kind of how that that company developed for for you well so like I said My intended taft was supposed to be medicine so when I decided to start a business and and food production I had no idea what I was doing. So I had to learn everything from How to cook food food to how to hire employees to bookkeeping to taxes to legal? You name it and We scaled very rapidly. And like you had said we ended up doing onless a million dollars in revenue our first year in business so it was really really successful but when you grow that fast it was also very very painful and very stressful so we had to learn everything the hard way so I feel like they did everything the wrong way two or three times before I figured out how to do it. The right I I went to the school of Google and Youtube and Scoured you know the Internet for hours at night and I was trying to find business resource centers and Anybody that I could ask questions soon as somebody helped me. I have no idea what I'm doing but I was selling this. You know healthy meal delivery service and I couldn't make food fast enough. People were just like we want more. We want more and I was like okay. The people want the product that how do I get it to them faster. That's fantastic though. That's I mean that is a good problem crab to have especially when you're building your own business and while just you know take a lot of dedication. It sounds like in a lot of Thailand. The era but it sounds like you were very successful You know with your company. So congratulations to you. That's really encouraging. Yeah it was it was really great and but it was like I said it's also very painful at the same time so it led to a lot of life lessons have I say it was a crash course NBA. That I didn't get you know a business degree but I got it at the School of hard knocks. I you know fell down multiple times than I learned in real time How to start and grow business because my business was growing so fast and now I've realized how Lucky Lucky I was with my business because I had a product that people wanted and I had no problem selling my product very fast and very quickly and now I realize that that's kind of like like in uniform thing where other people are doing? Okay I have been business. How do I sell it to people and I never had that problem? Yeah yeah no that's that blaze. You said that is definitely a Unicorn and I am a true believer that you learn the best when you're doing it in real life so I'm sure that you could probably teach me a thing or a two and probably some other people too so Well that's what I now. Yeah exactly so Now you advocate for military south entrepreneurship nationally. So share with us the wise and how Just surrounding that venture so so Just like I had just talked about I I feel like I'm fumbled my way through my first business and even though I had a tremendous amount of success over the course of Almost three years we ended up selling almost a half a million bills in San Diego So we had so many failures and and so many trials and tribulations and I felt like if I would have had some new jeter mentorship and better support systems and if I had other military thousands around me that are like hey. I'm also an entrepreneur or hey here's the path of how I did it that it would have been a little less painful and so the second that I could I started mentoring or their military spouses and with highs I turned to you know mentorship and guidance within like hey I started my own business and I started it in base housing out of my home kitchen and if I can do this so can you and it was really successful and but here's some groundwork and here's some things you need to know like to have some legal basics then have some marketing basics. And here's some tools and resources and tips and tricks nick. And you don't have to loan. And here's some great programs that you should know about. And here's some great. You know. Grants and great scholarships and all the things that I felt like like I found too late but now I've dedicated my life. Basically teaching military spouses that a entrepreneurship is even an option. That we don't always have to have a job that we can be our own bosses But we also have really big goals of entrepreneurship in Russia. It doesn't have to do something small that we can run with the big guys so That's kind of deal. That's awesome though I love it. I love that so much when you're really just providing really. I mean you're being you're becoming a resource for those you know military spouses. That may not have had that just like you said you know you you you would have loved to have had a mentor. Someone that helps you walk through that. And then as they believe it takes a village And that you know really what you're riding so it's it's really great We've kind of kind of touched on this a little bit. But he goes to a little bit more detail about why you feel so strongly about military spouse entrepeneurship and unwise important. Well I think that is military spouses Fi. First we have the highest unemployment rate in the country tree due to our crazy lifestyles and are spotty resumes and the debate on our lives and our kids and we we have Crazy amounts of education. And we just I feel like sometimes the job doesn't fit. It's like a square peg in a round hole and even if we are lucky not enough to find a good job. It's like Oh yeah I finally found something. It's like. Oh wait I have to leave it. And then you're stuck trying to find a job all over again and I feel like military south entrepreneurship. It gives us a little bit more control careers and we have more ownership ownership of that too and I just feel like we don't have to wait around and try to beg people for a job and we don't have to provide provide our worst to them that we can say no. This is how amazing I am and this is what I'm GonNa Charge for services and this is what you're GonNa pay me and I can do. The kids are in short. And I can do it from state I can do it from Japan and I can take my kids with me if I want to. And you can't say anything about it because I'm my own boss and then so true I've been there done that and I know how hard that is so I mean I I'm listening to like Yep uh-huh yeah yeah. Yeah Yeah and I love your here analogy to you. Know spending a square peg into around. Because I mean that's just I mean it is. That's that's that's what happens and that's what happens. Find something I love it and you have to move and you're always somewhat you know you're always calls the military where they want you to go. Oh and and and what you have to leave because you're this maybe on or Just you have a weird schedule just is what it is so I appreciate that. So much So why do you think that you know we talk about you. Know our schedules and different lifestyles. Besides not Why do you think that military spouses make such great entrepreneurs well? I think that we're kind of still for the entrepreneur. CNOR alive show on anybody that has built a business and it's kind of like trial by fire and I feel like that's exactly what the military lifestyle is on you have to curve. Yes sitter right and you have so many things thrown at you every single day and you have to have thick skin and you have to Have so much grit and determination and independence and strong bill and and You have to be resourceful and I feel like all of those shows. Just transfer right over into entrepreneurship that Military military spouses just it. Just it makes perfect sense for us to be entrepreneurs because in in the Business World Steph goes wrong every day just like military Y- you know in military life like something goes wrong every day and you have to curve and swerving after tibbets and you have to roll with the punches and I feel like military spouses are so used is to that and that it makes perfect sense that we survive and thrive in the business world so Once they talk to people like that I'm like you have all the skills that entrepreneur that but We are trial by fire people so it works perfect. Yes yes we very resilient. That's for sure. That's that's for sure. There's a lot of correlations. They're absolutely ossie. We do need to take a quick break but when we come back we'd love to chat with us about the Association of Military Spouse entrepreneurs. Yeah I'd love to talk about. It is super exciting.
