Achieving Goals One Risk at a Time
Reaching your goals is hard, but this inspiring podcast episode will pump you up to make your dreams a reality! If you’re looking for a career change or want to accomplish a goal but are scared to take the leap, have a listen below.
I have such a treat for you all today and it is completely unrelated to cooking, but it might just become your favorite Cook Smarts podcast episode. I’m excited to share another part of our origin story today! There would be no Cook Smarts without the talents and persistence of Jen Gilbert, who helped me build our meal plan service back in 2013.
Jen and I met in the fall of 2012 at a Railsbridge workshop. We had both just turned 30 and made huge career changes. She wanted to learn to code to become a software developer, and I wanted to learn to code because I was determined to build a meal plan service. There were many challenges and hiccups along the way, but in the end we launched the service on May 1, 2013, with paying customers on day 1. Come join us on this walk down memory lane and hear how we made the impossible happen!
And since we’re in the peak of New Year’s resolution season, I’m hoping our conversation will inspire you to go after your dreams this year, because if we did it, I know you can do it, too.
