Abby Knowles is the nut butter goddess behind Life of Riley Foods. Abby creates all of her nut butters with just a few simple ingredients, and without processed sugars or additives. Her mission is to create and share healthy, satisfying, and tasty food so people can live their best lives – promoting the good life through good food!
Abby wants to hear from Suzy DeYoung, founder of La Soupe. La Soupe rescues otherwise wasted produce to create delicious and highly-nutritious meals for customers, non-profits and food-insecure families.
Remarkable Brand of the Week
Abby’s pick for this week’s remarkable brand is Patagonia. Patagonia’s mission is to build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, and use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis. Their values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted. The approach they take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility.
Call to Action
Get comfortable with the idea that building a business and a brand the right way is going to take some time. It’s not a rush job. Time takes time and just knowing that can be reassuring. So stay the course, stay focused, and stay in the moment, and things will continue to get better and better.
