Author of "Good Food, Great Business: How to Take Your Artisan Food Idea from Concept to Marketplace"

Susie connected the dots to combine her loves of supporting food makers and marketing. Into what? A Good Food business strategist and one-woman personal think tank for food entrepreneurs. Based in Oakland, California, she Susie sourced artisan food for several online marketplaces (like Foodzie), planned (and scrapped) her own snack-food business (an important lesson), co-chaired the Good Food Awards Confections committee, kicked off the U.S. Fair Trade cocoa program early on, and wrote her MBA thesis on Consumer Attitudes Toward Giving Chocolate as a Gift.

Connect the Dots From Good Food to Great Business

Part of Me, Why Not Take Part of Me?

The song goes All of Me, but entrepreneurs often find ourselves conflicted by different parts of ourselves. You know, "Part of me wants to go for it. But part of me wants the security of a job."

Through stories and exercises, we take a look at how we can get those part of us into alignment. Needless to say, this is a fun, inspirational topic that gets at the core of what often stops us.
