    #1916 KeVita Case Study: The kombucha beverage company launched in a recession (that PepsiCo bought for $230,000,000)

    Joining me today is an entrepreneur who created a beverage company and sold it to PepsiCo.
    I want to find out how he sold his company but I also want to tear into this story, especially considering what’s going on in the world today.
    His name is Bill Moses. The company I’d like to spend a lot of time talking about is called KeVita. If you don’t recognize the name, you’d probably recognize the bottle.
    I want to find out how he launched it, how he grew it and why he’s coming back and doing an alcoholic beverage now.

    Bill Moses is the co-founder of Flying Embers, Organic Hard Kombucha with live probiotics and botanical adaptogens.

    #1914 Recession Proof: How to create a survival plan (so you can maintain confidence)

    #1914 Recession Proof: How to create a survival plan (so you can maintain confidence)

    I was feeling a little bit down about what’s going on in the world today. There’s the virus, but there’s also the economy that is taking businesses down and it’s hard to separate the two.
    The interesting thing is that Noah is so freaking upbeat about this. He sees it as more than a situation that we need to get through. I want to get some hope from that. But the other thing that’s coming through with Noah is that he’s got this pumped up confidence that I’m also hoping we can absorb from him.

Valuable

Asks the right questions, interviews interesting people, and shows a lot of enthusiasm. Only thing I would say is he needs to do better at not continually cutting off his interviewees- it’s not only annoying to the listener but I can tell it irritates the interviewer as well. Overall great podcast.
