When reality TV hits reality bigtime
Peaceful Fruits behind the scenes: don’t blink!
In the past two weeks we’ve gone from a steadily pushing forward to a crazy sprint. Why?
And read on to hear from some of the team (featuring Margo and Evan this week!) on how Peaceful Fruits is handling this incredible ramp up!
1.) The life of an fruit snack entrepreneur can be pretty chaotic as is; from snack making (whether that’s buying berries from the Amazon or pulling the 3am shift to get one more batch made!) to R&D, to business management, to all of the never-ending emails. This brings us to our first question:
Evan, before Shark Tank what was the first thing that you did after eating breakfast? What’s the first thing you do after eating breakfast now?
2.) Peaceful Fruits is more than just a snack, it’s a story that everyone is invited to be part of. Through her work on our website and social media - across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more - Margo is a key part of how we tell that story.
Margo, how do you keep track of everything when you are communicating through so many different avenues?!
3.) In the past two weeks we’ve created 10 new jobs, more than doubled production capacity, and are working to triple that double.
Evan, what has been the most time consuming part of this process? Approximately how many cups of coffee have you drank between now and Shark Tank?
4.) These past two weeks have been a time warp, by in a blink! But, situations like these are also important learning opportunities.
Margo, what are some lessons that you’ve learned through this experience?
5.) This last question is for Margo AND Evan: The coolest part about Peaceful Fruits is that all of our hard work is genuinely helping people in need from Akron to the Amazon and providing a snack that people don’t have to think twice and worry about.
