Baking away, daily is what I do. Along with marketing, finance, janitorial, speeches, and so forth.
But, I never thought that my product was touching the lives of those with eating disorders. One day, I had a woman with her mother come into my bakery in Miami. She proceeds to tell me that she purchased my product at a store in South Beach, FL.
I listened as to hear how the ingredients on the back quinoa, millet, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, protein, apricots, honey plus the information “Why We Use These Ingredients” on the website educated her on how these foods work for her and not against her.
At 26 years and 10 years of bulimia, her mother tells me that she no longer has this problem and has proceeded to start cooking for herself and understanding foods.
We spent a few days together, as for they flew in from Paris, France to meet me. I was honored. I was amazed. It is things like this that keep me going daily as a small business owner. Some can say, well isn’t it money that keeps you going. NO, because we can quit at any time.
That day, 4 people were blessed.
I still keep up with the girl from Paris. I still keep doing what I do.
