**As Captioned Live** [ APPLAUSE ]

>>> HELLO AND WELCOME BACK TO BUILD I'M YOUR HOST SITTING WITH THE ENTREPRENEUR AND MOTHER OF THREE WHO IS THE FOUNDER OF COMMUNITY AND LIFESTYLE WEBSITE OF WOMEN OF TODAY AND COFOUNDER OF YUMMY SPOONFULS DEDICATED TO BRINGING HIGH QUALITY TO FAMILIES EVERYWHERE. PLEASE WELCOME HER [ APPLAUSE ]

>> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

>> THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. I LOVE YOUR SITE I READ YOUR MISSION AN WHAT DID YOU'RE TRYING TO DO, HOW DID YOU COME TO THIS COMPANY, THOUGH.

>> YEAH, SO, YUMMY SPOONFULS WAS FOUNDED MANY YEARS AGO BY A WOMAN WHO IS AFRICAN AND HAD BEEN DOING IT FOR NINE YEARS OR SO. SHE IS DAUGHTER OF FARMERS. SHE ALWAYS MADE ALL OF THE FOOD FROM SCRATCH. MOVED TO THE STATES AND SAID IT IS THE FIRST TIME SHE EVER SAW CORN IN A CAN. AND THEN, SHE HAD A CHILD AND WAS LIKE OKAY MY KID IS GOING TO EAT ORGANIC AND SHE WENT TO THE STORE AND WENT TO GET PEAS AND WAS GOING, WHY IS IT BROWN? WHY IS IT NOT GREEN. SHE'S LIKE IT MUST BE EXPIRED. AND NO, IT'S NOT, SO SHE STARTED LEARNING HOW THE FOOD WAS MADE AND DECIDED TO MAKE IT ALL FROM SCRATCH HERSELF. SHE WORKED IN A COMPANY AT THAT TIME AS WELL AND SHE STARTED TO, THE LADIES THERE STARTED GIVING PITCH IN, CAN YOU MAKE IT FOR MY BABY OR MY KID AND ALL OF A SUDDEN SHE HAD OVER 300 MOMS AND THE COMPANY GREW AND STARTED FROM THERE. MY JOURNEY I HAVE THREE KIDS, I DID EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH AS WELL, AND I THOUGHT I HAVE TO DO THIS AS A BUSINESS AND SOMETHING ELSE WOULD HAPPEN AND IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN. WITH MY THIRD CHILD WE WERE LIVING IN THE MIDDLE OF CALGARY IN A TRAILER AND IT'S 3:00 IN THE MORNING AND I HAVE BOWLS AND DIRTY DISHES EVERYWHERE. TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE RIGHT COMBINATIONS AGAIN. I REMEMBER THINKING TO MYSELF, OKAY, BABY IS GOING TO WAKE UP FOR THE NEXT FEED, OTHER CHILDREN WILL BE UP 6:00 IN THE MORNING HERE I AM WORKING ON IT 24 HOURS, WHY IS IT SO HARD TO GO TO THE STORE AND GET BEST FORM OF NUTRITION FOR YOUR TODDLERS. SO I STARTED RESEARCH AND THREE OR FOUR COMPANIES WERE DOING IT ON A SMALLER SCALE AND IT WAS VERY EXPENSIVE AS WE. SO I WENT ON MY JOURNEY AND MET A LADY WHO WAS AN EXPERT, AND GOT HER CARD AND WE STARTED COMMUNICATING OVER E-MAIL AND THEN WE SAT DOWN AND LITERALLY TWO FRUSTRATED MOMS SIT ACROSS FROM EACH ONLY, DAUGHTERS OF FARMERS, INTERESTED IN HAVING THE RIGHT FOOD AND HOW THAT'S IMPORTANT AND WE DIDN'T WANT TO JEOPARDIZE THAT FOR A BUSINESS.

>> DO YOU FEEL HAVING CHILDREN CHANGES THE WAY WOMEN THINK ABOUT FOOD.

>> I KNOW FOR ME IT DID AND FOR MOST OF THE MOMS I TALK TO IT DOES. ABSOLUTELY. I THINK WHEN YOU ARE JUST DOING IT FOR YOURSELF YOU KIND OF SOMETIMES FORGET AND YOU SLIP. BUT WHEN YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR A LITTLE ONE, IT BECOMES VERY HARD NOT TO, YOU KNOW, FEEL VERY RESPONSIBLE AND GUILTY WHEN YOU DON'T DO THE RIGHT THING SO WE'RE TRYING TO GET THE GUILT OUT, DOING THE RIGHT FOOD THAT IS FUELIE NUTRITIONAL BALANCE, FOCUSED ON WHAT TODDLERS NEED. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND BETWEEN ONE AND THREE IS THE BIGGEST DEVELOPMENT IN KIDS, BRAIN, MUSCLES, ALL THOSE THINGS SHALL AND WHAT HAPPENS IS IF YOU'RE A MOM AND YOU'RE WATCHING YOU KNOW THIS. DO WE HAVE ANY MOMS, YEAH, NO. OKAY. AT HOME IF YOU'RE A MOM YOU UNDERSTAND THIS, RIGHT, THAT, ONCE YOU FIRST HAVE THE BABY YOU WORRY ABOUT EVERYTHING BABY EATS AND TOUCHES AND IS AROUND THEM AND AS THEY START GETTING OLDER YOU GO BACK TO WORK, PARTNER GOES BACK TO WORK, LIFE GETS BUSY AND YOU FALL INTO THE WORLD OF CHICKEN NUGGEST, MILK, CHEESE, HOT DOGS, FRENCH FRIES. IF YOU ANY ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF ENERGY TODDLER USES, IF YOU ARE GIVING THEM JUST EMPTY CALORIES AND THE NOT NUTRITION THEY NEED IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A GOOD RESULT.

>> IN THE LAST TEN YEARS THE CONVERSATION AROUND FOOD HAS CHANGED, WE HAVE WORDS LIKE NO GMOs SO WHAT CAN PEOPLE EXPECT FROM YUMMY SPOONFULS. WHAT'S IN THE FOOD, WHAT'S NOT IN THE FOOD.

>> WE'RE CERTIFIED ORGANIC. WE TEST OUR PRODUCTS. WE'RE IN A BIGGER MISSION IN TERMS OF, YES, WE'RE USING CLEAN INGREDIENTS. IF YOU LOOK ON THE BACK OF THE PACKAGE WE ARE USING THINGS THAT ARE IN YOUR KITCHEN. IF YOU CAN'T PRONUNCIATE IT DON'T BUY IT. WE ARE LOOKING AT THE CALORIES. THE NUTRITION. WHAT CAN TODDLER EAT TO BE THEIR BEST. HOW CAN WE TRAIN THEM TO HAVE A HEALTHY HABIT FOR THEIR WHOLE LIFE. AND WE'RE TESTING FOR CHEMICALS IN THE FOOD, HEAVY METALS AND THINGS THAT OUR BODIES AND THEIR LITTLE BODIES CANNOT PROCESS.

>> THINGS THAT SHOULD NEVER BE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

>> LET'S TALK ABOUT THE RESUME.

>> THIS IS CHICKEN SOUP POTATO BITES. WE HAVE BITES. WE HAVE BOWLS. AND WE HAVE BIG KID MEALS, KIDS WHO EAT A LITTLE BIT MORE AND HAVE MORE FUN WITH THE MEALS. OBVIOUSLY THEY'RE SPECIFICALLY FOR KIDS BUT ADULTS ALSO LOVE THIS OF ESPECIALLY THE BITES. AND WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO AGAIN, LET'S FORGET ABOUT THE CHICKEN NUGGEST AND LET'S GIVE YOU A NUGGET THAT WILL FIT INTO THE CONVENIENCE THAT YOU NEED TO BE ON THE GO, TO DO IT FAST, BUT IT TASTES GOOD AND IT'S GOOD FOR THEM.

>> I THINK WE HAVE A PICTURE OF THE BOWLS AS WELL. IT JUST LOOKS SO COLD OUTSIDE I WOULD EAT THIS. IT'S VEGGIE AND BEEF. HOW DO THE RECIPES COME ABOUT.

>> AGATHA WHEN WE MET UP SHE HAD RECIPES BEFORE AND HER AND I WORKED ON BUNCH OF RECIPES TOGETHER AND THIS LINE NOW I GIVE HER CREDIT FOR DOING THE RECIPES WHAT WE HAVE OUT NOW BECAUSE SHE WORKED ON THEM AND I WAS MORE FOCUSSING ON DOING THE OTHER PART OF THE BUSINESS.

>> SO LET'S TALK ABOUT THE BUSINESS. BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T NECESSARILY HAVE A BACKGROUND IN THIS, IT WAS SOMETHING YOU WERE PASSIONATE ABOUT AND WHAT KIND OF LEARNING CURVE DID YOU HAVE TO FACE IN MATERIALS OF INNOVATION AND MARKETING, ALL THAT STUFF.

>> YES WE LEARNED A LOT. LET ME JUST SAY THAT. WE LEARNED A LOT. YOU KNOW, FROM THE TIME THAT WE HAD TOGETHER WITH AGATHA DOING SMALL SCALE AND WE HAD TO SCALE UP THE BRAND REALLY FAST NATIONWIDE AND WE LAUNCH AND WE LEARN, RIGHT. THAT WAY. AND THEN NOW WE'RE KIND OF NOW WE FEEL LIKE WE HAVE OUR FEET ON THE GROUND. ONE THING I LEARNED ABOUT THIS JOURNEY IT DOES TAKE A FRUSTRATED PERSON WHO TRULY BELIEVES IN WHAT THEY'RE DOING TO CHANGE THINGS OUT THERE. WHEN WE FIRST STARTED NO ONE ELSE IN THE COUNTRY WAS DOING WHAT WE WERE DOING SO WE HAD TO BUY NEW EQUIPMENT AND SET UP PRODUCTION LINES. I WAS IN THE BACK BUYING HOSES FOR THE GUYS TO PUT THE PRODUCTION LINE TOGETHER. I HAD MY SPECIAL CHAIR NEXT TO THE MACHINES BECAUSE I WOULD HELP THE GUYS OUT. SO, YOU KNOW, IT WAS A LOT IN THAT PROCESS. WHAT I HAVE LEARNED A THE MOST, NUMBER ONE YOU NEED TO HAVE A MISSION YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN AND NUMBER TWO YOU REALLY NEED TO HAVE THE RIGHT PEOPLE AROUND YOU. EXECUTION IS A BIG THING. SO IF YOU HAVE THE IDEA, YOU CAN HAVE THE IDEA, YOU CAN HAVE THE MONEY. IT COULD BE A GREAT PRODUCT, BUT IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE EXECUTION IT'S NOT GOING TO GO ANYWHERE.

>> AND HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT DISTRIBUTION. YOU ARE AT TARGET, WALMART, WAS IT CRAZY LEARNING CURVE DEALING WITH HUGE COMPANIES.

>> YES. WALMART NOW. YES. [ APPLAUSE ] YEAH. IN THE FREEZER SECTION. BECAUSE YOU KNOW PART OF OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE IT AS ACCESSIBLE AS POSSIBLE SO WALMART IS PLAYING A BIG PART WITH US. I THINK THE LOGISTICS PART IS OVERWHELMING BUT I WORK REALLY CLOSELY WITH THOSE COMPANIES AND I, YOU KNOW, EVERY WALMART MEETING I'M THERE AND ON THE FLOOR WITH THEM, WORKING ALL THOSE THINGS, THAT'S THE PART I LOVE. I LOVE THAT OF AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT THE BIGGER CORPORATIONS ARE READY TO PROVIDE BETTER OPTIONS, THEY'RE READY TO MAKE THE CHANGES, BUT IT'S YOU GUYS AT HOME, THE CONSUMERS THAT NEED TO START RESEARCHING, EDUCATING, BUYING THOSE BRANDS SO THEY COULD THEN KEEP THEM ON THE SHELVES AND BRINGING MORE GOOD OPTIONS.

>> I HAVE SO MANY WOMEN IN MY LIFE WHO ARE INNOVATORS AN KD SEE A PROBLEM AND WANT TO THE FIX IT. IT'S SO IMPORTANT. TO HEAR YOUR STORY OF A FRUSTRATED MOTHER CAN CREATE A BUSINESS AND WITH PEOPLE YOU TRUST CAN BUILD A COMPANY WITH .

>> ABSOLUTELY YOU ALSO HAVE TO BE VERY CONVINCING. I CAN BE VERY PERSUASIVE. THANK YOU. MY PORTUGUESE IS COMING OUT. IN TERMS OF PUSHING IT. IT'S NOT AN EASY SELL. WHEN YOU ARE SMALL COMPANY AND WALKING INTO WALMART, THE ROOM FOR WALMART MEETINGS IT'S ROOM AFTER ROOM AFTER ROOM AND BUYERS MEETING ONE AFTER ANOTHER AFTER ANOTHER AFTER ANOTHER. THEY'RE MEETING WITH THE BIGGEST GUYS IN THE WORLD, NOT JUST THE COUNTRY, THEY'RE THE LARGEST RETAILER IN THE WORLD AND THEY'RE MEETING WITH HUGE GUYS AND THERE YOU GO, HI, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, TO SHOW AND PROVE TO THEM. SO IT TOOK A LOT OF MEETINGS AND A LOT OF WORK TO GET WHERE WE ARE WITH THEM NOW. BUT IT TAKES AMAZING PEOPLE ON THE OTHER SIDE WHICH WE HAVE WITH WALMART FROM THE BUYER, TO THE MARKETING, TO PR, EVERYBODY WHO BROUGHT THIS TOGETHER TO BRING THIS LIFE BELIEVE IN WHAT WE'RE DOING.

>> AND YOU ARE DOING WOMEN OF TODAY A COMMUNITY TO SHARE BEAUTY TIPS TO RECIPES, SO WHY WAS THAT SOMETHING YOU WANTED TO PUT YOUR EFFORTS BEHIND?

>> WELL I STARTED WOMEN OF TODAY MANY, MANY YEARS AGO. I HAD A HAND BAG COMPANY AND MY MOM KEPT DOING THAT AND I MOVED AWAY FROM THAT AFTER MY THIRD CHILD BEFORE I GOT INTO YUMMY. SO I GOT INTO THAT SPACE BECAUSE NUMBER ONE I LOVE LIFESTYLE. ANYONE KNOWS ME I'M THE ONE WAKING UP AT 5:00 DOING FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS FOR FRIENDS BABY SHOWER OR COOKING, YEAH, I'M THAT CRAZY PERSON. BUT ALSO I MOVED TO SO MANY COUNTRIES IN MY LIFE THAT WHAT I MISSED WHEN I WAS IN THOSE COUNTRIES I ALWAYS FELT THIS COMMUNITY THAT WOMEN HAD AROUND THEM. IT WASN'T ABOUT HEY WE'RE WOMEN AND WE'RE THE BEST, IT'S NOT ABOUT THAT, IT'S ABOUT REALLY HAVING A CONVERSATION I DID THIS AND IT WORKED FOR ME. WHAT DID YOU DO DIFFERENT, MY MOM TAUGHT ME THIS. OR MY SISTER. THEY DID THINGS LIKE THIS. OR THIS RECIPE. IT'S ABOUT CONVERSATION HAPPENING IN COMMUNITY AND NEIGHBORHOODS THAT HERE IN AMERICA DON'T FEEL THAT HAPPENING. SO WE STARTED A COMMUNITY AND IT'S GROWING, DOING GREAT, I'M PROUD TO SAY OF THE WHOLE IDEA IS NOT ABOUT I'M SO AND SO AND THIS IS WHAT I KNOW HOW TO DO. IT'S MORE ABOUT THIS IS WHAT I LEARNED WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED. WE'RE GOING TO TEST IT OUT TO MAKE SURE IT WORKS AND WE SHARE BACK WITH THE COMMUNITY. IT'S BEEN FANTASTIC. AND WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO ALSO CREATE VERY SPECIAL EXPERIENCES FOR WOMEN ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY AND THAT IS THE THING THAT WARMS MY HEART THE MOST. BECAUSE I GET TO SEE WOMEN REALLY DOING THINGS OTHERWISE THEY WRONT HAVE A CHANCE THEY WOULDN'T HAVE A CHANCE TO DO. AND THE LETTERS AND THE HELP WE GET IS PRETTY NEAT.

>> YOU HAVE A TON OF DIFFERENT RECIPES. I LOVE THIS PHOTO IT'S LIKE EVERY MOTHER I KNOW. YOU COOK A LOT? IS THAT SOMETHING YOU'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT.

>> YEAH AT HOME WE COOK ALL THREE MEALS AT HOME EVERY DAY. WE RARELY GO OUT TO EAT. THE REASON I WANTED THIS PHOTO A LOT OF MY GIRLFRIENDS COME TO MY HOUSE AND SAY OH, MY GOSH IT'S SO PEACEFUL. THE CANDLES, THE DINNER, EVERYTHING SMELLS GOOD, COOKING IN THE KITCHEN AND THEY'D BE LIKE I WISH I COULD HAVE MY HOUSE LIKE THIS. I'M LIKE YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS FIVE MINUTES AGO LIKE YOU OPEN THE DOOR, STUFF'S GOING TO START FLYING OUT, KNOW WHAT I MEAN. SO I WANTED TO KIND OF GIVE PERSPECTIVE TO REALITY THAT WE ARE CRAZY RUNNING AROUND TRYING TO WEAR SO MANY HATS AND IT'S NEVER GOING TO BE PERFECT. BUT IF WE CAN JUST HAVE FUN WITH IT AND HAVE THE COMMUNITY TO SHARE WITH EACH OTHER. WHATEVER IT IS, IT'S REALLY NEED. REALLY NEAT. AGAIN. THE EXPERIENCE, YOU CAN CHECK IT ON INSTAGRAM OR MY PERSONAL, YOU HAVE LITTLE VIDEOS AND STUFF. IT'S PRETTY SWEET.

>> I LOVE THAT YOU CAN NOMINATE A WOMAN TO FEATURE. I LOVE RECOGNIZING WOMEN IN OUR LIVES FOR ALL OF THE AMAZING THINGS YOU'RE DOING. I ALSO SAW YOU'RE A NEW BEE KEEPER.

>> OH, MY GOSH, YES.

>> I SAW THAT ON THE SITE, THIS IS SMAGDS.

>> AMAZING.

>> YES.

>> I HEARD A TON ABOUT IT, NEVER KNEW ANYBODY WHO DONE IT BUT INTERESTING TO READ THE ARTICLE AND SEE ALL OF THE BENEFITS FROM IT.

>> YES, LOOK, AGAIN, I'M DAUGHTER OF FARMERS SO WE HAVE GREW UP AROUND THAT ENVIRONMENT SO I TRY TO BRING THAT AS MUCH AS I CAN TO MY OWN HOME. SO WE HAVE AN ORCHARD THAT, WHEN WE ARE THERE FULL TIME I ONLY GO TO THE STORE TO BUY GRAINS AND PROTEINS. WE GET ALL OF THE FRESH STUFF FROM THE GARDEN. OUR FRUIT ACTUALLY DIDN'T TASTE GOOD SO I WAS LIKE WE NEED THE BEES TO MAKE IT BETTER PLUS THOSE LITTLE GUYS ARE IN TROUBLE AND THEY'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR SO MUCH OF OUR FOOD SUPPLY. I WAS LIKE IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH. GOING TO DO MY LITTLE PART AND IT'S SO EASY. IT'S REALLY EASY. AND WE GET HONEY. IT'S AMAZING.

>> HONEY YOU CAN BOTTLE AND EAT.

>> YES IT'S SO GOOD. LIKE, SO GOOD. IT'S THE BEST STUFF. SO YOU HAVE IT. IT'S REALLY LOW MAINTENANCE. IF YOU DON'T MESS WITH THEM THEY'RE NOT GOING TO MESS WITH YOU. THEY REALLY DON'T. DON'T POKE THEM OR PLAY. BUT, THE VEGETABLE GARDEN, THE FRUITS ARE BETTER TASTING THEN EVER BEEN, WE GET HONEY AND WE'RE HELPING THE BEE POPULATION.

>> I'VE BEEN READING A LOT ABOUT THE BEES SO I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THIS, I SEEN ROOF TOPPERS TOO.

>> IT'S AN UNDERGROUND MOVEMENT BUT IT'S ACTUALLY A SERIOUS THING. DON'T GET ME STARTED I'LL TALK FOR HOURS. YOU GUYS SHOULD READ ABOUT IT A LITTLE BIT.

>> LET'S GO TO THE AUDIENCE FOR QUESTIONS BEFORE WE GO. WHO DO WE HAVE FIRST.

>> HELLO.

>> HI.

>> I WAS WONDERING, SO I HAVE A LITTLE BROTHER WHO IS TWO, WHAT YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE IS FOR SOMEONE AROUND THAT AGE RANGE. AND THEN WHAT YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE IS FOR YOURSELF OR ADULTS IN GENERAL.

>> YEAH, YEAH. THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION. I THINK, I SHARED THIS MORNING A RECIPE ON "THE TODAY SHOW" I DID A PASTA SAUCE THAT IS SUPER EASY TO MAKE, INSPIRED BY FUN RECIPE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME MAKE THE RECIPE I SHOWED. IT'S SUPER EASY AND TASTE SO GOOD AND THE KIDS LOVE IT. I ACTUALLY DID IT LAST NIGHT AT MY HOUSE AND THE KIDS DEVOUR THE WHOLE THING. THEY LOVE IT. CRAZY. AND MY FAVORITE, I HAVE MANY FAVORITE RECIPES BUT MY FAVORITE TO MAKE I MAKE A CHICKEN, MY KIDS CALL IT HONEY CHICKEN. AND THE REASON I LOVE MAKING IT IS BECAUSE IT'S THEIR FAVORITE WHENEVER I SAY WE'RE HAVING HONEY CHICKEN THEY WILL RUN AROUND SCREAMING HONEY CHICKEN, GOING CRAZY. THAT'S MY FAVORITE ONE.

>> THANK YOU.

>> YOUR WELCOME.

>> HAVE YOU USED YOUR OWN HONEY YET FOR THE HONEY CHICKEN.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> YOU'RE SO COOL. I LOVE THAT. NEXT QUESTION.

>> HI I WAS WONDERING WHAT ADVICE YOU HAVE FOR WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS IN GENERAL WHO WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN BETTERING FOOD, JUST THE FOOD MARKET IN GENERAL.

>> SO THE FOOD MARKET IS AN OVER CROWDED SPACE SO IF YOU DO SOMETHING IT HAS TO DIFFERENTIATE. BECAUSE IT'S SO OVER CROWDED. AND YOU HAVE TO REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING IN TERMS OF PRODUCTION. BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO ESPECIALLY DOING BETTER FOR YOU, YOU KNOW, THE INDUSTRY IS SO SET UP TO PRODUCE THINGS IN A CERTAIN WAY THAT THE ATTEMPT TO MAKE IT DIFFERENT IS REALLY HARD AND CAN BE REALLY EXPENSIVE. SO A LOT OF RESEARCH ON HOW TO PRODUCE WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO DO AND HOW TO SCALE IS KEY ON ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DO. SO IT'S EASY TO MAKE SOMETHING IN YOUR KITCHEN OR MAKE SOMETHING IN SMALLER SCALE BUT WHEN YOU'RE ABOUT TO SCALE UP AND YOU THINK LIKE, OH, I CAN JUST USE THE SAME THINGS I JUST USED IT'S JUST A BIGGER POT, IT'S NOT AS EASY IN THE INDUSTRY TO MAKE IT. SO THAT'S A BIG BATTLE THAT WE HAD. I THINK ANYBODY WHO HAS A CONCEPT TO DO, UNDERSTANDING THOSE BATTLES AHEAD OF TIME, BECAUSE WE DIDN'T KNOW AHEAD OF TIME. WE JUST THOUGHT HEY IT'S A BIGGER POT, WE CAN MAKE THIS. SO HAVING THAT UNDERSTANDING AND REALLY RESEARCHING WILL GIVE YOU A BIG HEAD'S UP ON BEING ABLE TO ADVANCE. BECAUSE WHEN YOU GET TO THE WALMART WORLD THEY ASK CAN YOU DELIVER AND YOU HAVE TO ALWAYS BE ON TIME. THIS IS A GOOD ONE -- DON'T EVER PROMISE A BUYER SOMETHING YOU CANNOT DELIVER. YOU WILL BURN A BRIDGE. YOU CAN TELL A BUYER I'M NOT SURE I CAN DO IT. MAYBE I CAN DO IT LIKE THIS OR THAT, BUT IF YOU TELL THEM SOMETHING YOU CAN DO FOR SURE, YOU BETTER BE ABLE TO DELIVER.

>> GOOD ADVICE. THAT'S GOOD ADVICE FOR LOT OF AREAS IN LIFE. TOO.

>> I GUESS SO, THAT'S TRUE, THAT'S TRUE.

>> LAST QUESTION.

>> HI.

>> HI. GREAT HAIR STYLE.

>> OH, THANK YOU I LOVE YOUR HAIR ALSO. YOU'RE SORT OF A RENAISSANCE ENTREPRENEUR HAVING YOUR HAND IN SO MANY DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES SO I'M WONDERING WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO NEXT? WHETHER CONTINUING THIS OR SOMETHING ELSE?

>> YEAH, THANK YOU FOR ASKING THAT. I DO HAVE SOME THINGS UP MY SLEEVES. CAN'T TALK ABOUT ALL OF IT YET. I WILL SHARE THIS MUCH WITH YOU, WITH EVERYTHING I HAVE LEARNED IN THIS MISSION OF THE FOOD, THE BIGGEST PASSION FOR ME RIGHT NOW AND WITH EVERYTHING MOVING FORWARD IT'S REALLY EDUCATING PEOPLE ON WHAT IS IN YOUR FOOD. YOU KNOW. I'M PAST THE SUGAR CONTENT. I'M PAST THE CALORIES. I'M REALLY TALKING ABOUT CHEMICALS AND HEAVY METALS YOUR BODY CANNOT PROCESS. IT WILL CREATE LONG-TERM EFFECT IN YOUR BODY. I'M READING SO MANY SCIENTIFIC PAPERS COMPLICATED FOR MY BRAIN, I'M LEARNING ABOUT THE TOXICITY IN THE BODY AND EDUCATING PEOPLE WHAT IT IS, AND SO MUCH OF IT CAN BE STOPPED IN A SIMPLE WAY. WE ARE DOING THINGS NOT SO HARD TO FISH. TO FIX. WE ASK WHY SO MANY CANCERS AND ILLNESSES, IS FOOD ALL OF THE ANSWERS, NO, NOT SAYING THAT, BUT IT IS ONE OF THE DEFINITE VALUABLE THINGS WE HAVE TO BE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT WE PUT IN OUR BODY.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>> YOUR WELCOME.

>> THAT'S AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE. ESPECIALLY WITH INFLAMMATION AND THINGS.

>> I'M NOT TELLING PEOPLE NEED TO BE PURE BUT I'M TELLING YOU THIS IF YOU HAVE BAD, BAD, BAD, MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY EVERY DAY, JUST DO THE MATH. YOU KNOW.

>> EVENTUALLY IT WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU.

>> YEAH.

>> WHICH IS WHY I LOVE YOUR SIGHT WOMEN OF TODAY. THERE'S SO MANY RECIPES AND DIY AND FUN THINGS TO TRY IN YOUR HOME AND YUMMY SPOONFULS IS AVAILABLE NATIONWIDE IN THOUSANDS OF STORES.

>> WALMART GO GET IT NOW.

>> GIVE IT UP FOR CAMILLA.

>> YES THANK YOU, GUYS. [ APPLAUSE ]
