Last week Keeley and I were invited to speak to the 5th grade classes at an elementary school in our home town of Tualatin.
This is the second time we've spoken at this school and it's awesome to return one year later and update the students on what has happened in the last 12 months.
We are used to speaking to adults about our company, so getting the opportunity to speak in front of 10 and 11 year olds was a breath of fresh air! Instead of talking about sales numbers, expansion plans and marketing strategies, they were most interested in hearing about our appearance on Shark Tank, suggesting new flavor ideas and telling us about their awesome business ideas.
These girls were SO excited to get a picture with Keeley! And even more excited to get free packets! They even asked for our autographs ;-)
After we were done speaking there were some dedicated students who stuck around to ask more questions.
It was so fun to take a break from the monotony of phone calls, e-mails and desk work to share our experiences with these students. It's awesome to feel like we can have some impact on these kids and inspire them to follow their dreams!
Just look at this group! I felt like I was in a mosh pit at concert...a Justin Bieber concert that is.
Can you spot us?!
