Welcome again to a different new episode of the Carrots ‘N’ Cake Podcast! On this week’s episode, I had the great alternative to talk with fellow entrepreneur, Amanda Gilman, on all issues enterprise.
Amanda Gilman is the founding father of AMG Snacks, which she launched in 2019. After spending years making her personal snacks, she was impressed to share these scrumptious eats with others. Through the years, she created her personal flavors via recipe experimentation and sharing with household and buddies.
Previous to AMG Snacks, Amanda was a Managing Director within the Steadiness Sheet Evaluation and Technique group at a NY-based funding financial institution, the place she labored with monetary establishments within the areas of steadiness sheet administration. Between lengthy days on the workplace and touring to purchasers, Amanda wanted simply accessible, on-the-go snacks. Most “wholesome” snack choices turned out to have processed components or a texture that was too powerful for her “TMJ” syndrome (a jaw dysfunction that causes ache or discomfort when irritated). When she couldn’t discover precisely what she was in search of she turned to her studio condo kitchen in New York Metropolis and made her personal snacks.
Amanda’s power chunk snacks are additionally made with a brief listing of top quality, all-natural components. These bitesize snacks are filled with important vitamins wanted to gas our our bodies: wholesome fat, fiber, and protein. Amanda turned excited in regards to the potential concept of making a enterprise round an natural concept. Subsequent, she began researching one merchandise a day to determine what it could take to start out a enterprise. Lastly, after 6 months of analysis, Amanda took the leap to pursue AMG Snacks full time and launched the enterprise in December of 2019 via on-line gross sales and started to hit the bottom to get into retail places.
Amanda and I dive into:
- How she bought her enterprise off the bottom. Aka it looks as if quite a bit to tackle as one individual (gross sales, manufacturing, advertising and marketing, accounting, operations, logistics)?
- How she managed because the enterprise grew.
- How did the pandemic impacted her enterprise and plan?
