˜ "I own a company that makes allergy friendly food products and right now we are doing dairy-free yogurts. Eventually I want to grow the company and sell it, but I love what I am doing right now with it.
I have a bunch of food allergies and the main one is dairy. I used to put yogurt on everything and when I found out I was crushed. I would try dairy-free yogurts and there was nothing on the market that tasted good and actually had good ingredients, so I created my own.
It's been very unglamorous. It's been a lot of hard work and staying up late. It's coconut based so I'm covered in coconut a lot and there is a lot of manual labor, but it's been really fun and rewarding; more rewarding than working for somebody else and doing something that doesn't benefit anybody. It's something you care about so you're covered in yogurt and it's midnight, but there is a purpose behind there that drives the action." ˜
