It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day, but it’s important to stop ask: what’s the end goal? Knowing where you are trying to go is step one in getting there and so we’ve asked some folks we admire to tell us their end goal and where they want to be by the end of their careers.

Jahshawun Youmans | Ceo/Entrepreneur

1. My family is full of entrepreneurs so I feel as if owning my own business is in my blood. I’ve also had a good bit of jobs like landscaping, working at a restaurant, retail etc, and it never sat right with me working for someone else for the rest of my life.

Julie Thibault-Dury | & Adalaia owner

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and I never lost sight of that goal. All my life choices were driven by it. My end goal is to fulfill a dream I’ve had for a while and I would rather not say more about it now. But what I can tell you is how I want to get there. I want to contribute to changing our world by helping people rediscover the value of local goods, bringing others to favor making their products in the US and continuing to optimize our methods to make our deliveries even more eco-friendly. Oddly enough, I don’t picture myself ending my career or my business later in life. I really enjoy working and it’s part of me. It’s a passion. Read more>>
