Key Takeaways:  

  • If you don’t fail big then maybe you haven’t aimed high enough  
  • Owning your own business will always require you to be there, no matter how many people you hire

    The wisdom and experience shared on this podcast is insightful and offers a ton of value from top leaders. Anne Hyman’s story about how they imported their beans and what they had to do to make sure they kept their capital. Very interesting!
