On this episode of the Life in the Carolinas podcast, Carl sits down with Jason and Chantelle Sargood, co-owners of the veteran-owned meat processing business, The Meat Sweats. The dynamic husband and wife team kick off the conversation by discussing their secrets to raising their large family, mainly how they are teaching their five kids the value of respect and always going beyond what is expected of them. Having grown up in small towns, Jason and Chantelle believe that their grounded and value-driven approach to life has carried over into their role as parents and now as business owners.
Curiosity is yet another trait that the Sargoods have in common. Jason tells how he ended up getting a job as the site engineer for a medical robotics company simply because the opportunity arose to take on a challenging yet rewarding position. This same mindset of “go big or go home” naturally extended to Jason and Chantelle’s decision to start their own meat processing business later on.
Finally, our guests imagine how life and career will look five years from now and how they view the seasons of life in general. As Chantelle puts it:
“This is just the season we’re in right now. It’s not going to be like this forever. It’s just about enjoying the crazy, chaotic life we have right now because anything can change at any given time.”
