In This Episode:
When your closest loved ones tell you, “You can’t do it,” what keeps you going?
When you sleep a mere 4 hours a night because the rest of your life is consumed with managing every facet of your budding start-up, how do you keep the vision alive?
When you’re selling raw, vegan, soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free energy balls that taste like cookie dough, how do you stay the course and end up in 52-grocery stores nationwide in the span of 3 years and on target to building a multi-million dollar business?
And… oh yeah... when you have never done anything remotely like this before in your entire life, what on earth makes you think you can?!
This week on the DTBY podcast, guest Dara Haid, founder and owner of Simply Dara Raw Balls explores just that: what does it take to build the life you’ve only ever glimpsed in dreams?
Dara is the real deal. She’s on a mission to change how we relate to our food, one ball at a time. She doesn’t dally around; her honesty and intimacy keeps us waiting on each word, curious where she’ll lead us next.
From following flow to daily self-doubt, Dara recounts her sacred and messy journey of being propelled by an inner sense of knowing, even when it has you facing the total unknown.
In this episode, Isabelle and Dara cover how:
- A radio interview with a prisoner of war changed the course of her life
- Hiring people has taught her the vital importance of open communication
- Several of her closest loved ones went from naysayers to supporters
