Scroupie Spotlight: How Kirsty Briscoe Got Her Products on the Shelves of Whole Foods (and Why It Wasn’t What She Expected)

Imagine this: You have a passion for creating healthy food and products for your friends, family and loved ones…and when they try it, they actually like it!

So much so, you decide to see if others feel the same and you start hitting local markets…

And much to your surprise a company like WHOLE FOODS starts to notice what you've created.

I mean, it sounds like every creative's, baker's and maker's dream, doesn't it?

Do you make something new?

Do you power through and chalk it all up to the entrepreneurial journey?
