In this episode, LaVonne Ellis shares the story of her founding of Tealing & Co., and the budding empire that tea is making.
She shares the lessons from being a small business owner, and the many details and storms of starting a new business, including the two-sided coin of having a business degree being a benefit as well as also being what makes it filled with more pressure because people have higher expectations. Particularly because nothing really prepares one when you’re starting up a new business.
LaVonne shares the challenges of getting people (normally coffee addicts) to try tea, especially those of Tealing & Co., and the magical joys of three key components to success, however you may define it: doing something you love, being able to make a living doing what you enjoy, and having a market for what you’re passionate about.
