Favorite success quote or mantra:

Every day is a new day.

In this episode with Ryan Salts, we discuss: 

  • How powerful taking an interest in others can be. 
  • Once you've gained an idea of who is who, helping people connect. 
  • What attracted Ryan to entrepreneurism. 
  • How part of Ryan's mission with Break Fast & Launch is to paint a realistic picture of how hard it is to opening a food and beverage operation. 
  • How beneficial it is for entrepreneurs to get involved with organizations like Launch SA simply for the perspective it offers. 
  • What most food entrepreneurs miss when they're opening their food business. 
  • Communicating with the regulatory entities instead of seeing them as if they are the bad guys. 
  • Setting your business up with the right tools on day one so you don't have to fix things while your business is running. 
  • Taking the time to think about what you want to become so you can set yourself up better to get there. 
  • Surrounding yourself with not only mentors who have done what you are doing, but also with peers who are going through the same thing.
