In episode 156, I got to talk with Steven Smith from the company Vegan Fine Foods. VFF opened their flagship store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in March 2018, but the journey began long before that. It started in May, 1997. After years in graduate school, Steven gained a lot of weight and his health was failing. That led to the decision to take control of his health, cleanse his system, and get back on track. It led to the decision to change from a fast-food, meat-based diet to a plant-based, vegan diet.

In episode 150 I got to talk with creator Carter Malloy about his new equity crowdfunding platform,  Acretrader. AcreTrader was created with a simple mission: provide investors direct access to the highly attractive asset class of farmland. Before AcreTrader, an investor’s options were extremely limited in gaining exposure to this alternative asset, and what few options there were carried the burden of high fees, limited or no liquidity (often 10+ years of capital commitment) and/or no control over portfolio composition.
In episode 149 - I got to talk with Kyle Schut from the successful Kickstarter Straton Legera Watch. Straton Watch Co. ® was established in 2015 by watch and car enthusiast Kyle. Combining his passions, he created a brand which has successfully launched four Kickstarter campaigns to date for various Straton watches and delivered more than 6000 watches worldwide. Kyle is proud to present his latest retro creation the "Legera". The Legera Standard and Legera Bullhead is available with two movement options for each of the cases, either the Swiss Made Valjoux 7750 Automatic for the Legera Bullhead, and  Valjoux 7753 Automatic for the Legera Standard. The Quartz versions will house the Seiko/TMI VK67 meca-quartz for the Legera Bullhead and Seiko/TMI VK63 meca-quartz for the Legera Standard. Why have we chosen both Automatic and Quartz movements? Some customers prefer Automatic movement and some prefer a Quartz movement, price is a decision factor.
In Episode 148, I got to talk with the creators of Dango Modular Watches. The watches have been in development for over one year and they wanted to create a collection that compliments and completes their everyday gear. When they decided to enter the market, they wanted to do it their way, with every detail unique to the vision and built from ground zero. Introducing the TREK, a field watch, DIVE, a sport watch that accompanies you on every adventure, and CHRONO, an automotive inspired chronograph watch. Check out their Kickstarter.
In episode 147 I got to talk with Alison Buehler about her successful Kickstarter campaign, Relatable Chapter Book Series for Diverse Developing Readers. Only 15% of African American 4th graders in Mississippi scored at the proficient reading level on the National Literacy Exam last year. That number is unacceptable.Children become fluent readers by DEVOURING early chapter book series like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Captain Underpants, or Magic Tree House. There are virtually NO popular chapter book series written by African American authors. Only 7% of all children's books are authored by African American, Native American, and Hispanic Americans combined.How likely are kids to love reading if they never encounter a character they can relate to?Take a moment to listen to our amazing conversation to learn more about this successful Kickstarter campaign.
