A few days after my recent entrepreneur speed dating night, I was matched up with the EforAll team that I’ll be working with for the next few months.
Felicia and Josh are a wife and husband who left more traditional full-time jobs to start a family farm. They’ve been at it for a couple of years and have some great momentum going, primarily selling through farmers’ markets and community-supported agriculture (CSA) memberships. But they are interested in expanding into farm-to-table prepared foods and exploring other ways to grow their business.
We had a great kick-off meeting today. Felicia and Josh are both bright and motivated, and the dynamic and mix of skills among the three mentors is also very good.
It’s really fun to get my mental wheels turning about a business that is completely unfamiliar to me. I also really enjoy working with entrepreneurs with a running start with their business, since it’s possible to make a more significant impact in three months.
