Hello my dear blog readers. I am sorry for my disappearance. My last post, which featured a photo of banged up cardboard box that arrived after our trip to Viet Nam, came to you a month ago today. Since then I’ve felt a bit like that box as I’ve sorted out life after vacation, some family events (fun and challenging), and work I pushed ahead until “after the trip.” Now it’s time to get back to Unsinkable. The next series of posts will cover in real time what it’s like for two women to create a start-up.
The next phase of Lucky Planet Foods, the business my partner, Lise Van Susteren, and I are launching is about to bloom. While it’s true I’ve grown a successful business, I also have had my share of flops. So, why do it again? Three reasons:
First: Lucky Planet Foods is just a great idea. See if you agree — our mission is below:
Lucky Planet creates delicious plant-based food inspired by diverse culinary traditions from around the world. Lucky Planet meals are solely plant-based made with great flavors and spices. We strive to use locally grown ingredients and are committed to protecting our planet with a low carbon footprint.
Second: I like to create value and make a difference and Lucky Planet will be good for people, animals and the planet (our tag line, by the way.)
Third: its’ so crazy it just might work.
