Building something from scratch is a humbling experience. You won't have all the answers all the time. You'll celebrate wins like qualifying for Medicaid. You'll frequently wonder what will happen to you once you've exhausted your life savings. . But I wouldn't have it any other way. . Thank you General Assembly for having me at Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained!
I've probably mentioned to you that one day I want to have my own lobster bao (hybrid between lobster roll and Chinese bao) truck. 🚌✨🙌 Today was the day I made my first one! . Made steamed buns from scratch, with lobster in ginger scallion brown butter mayo, garnished with fried crispy shallots. Side of Chinese pickles. . @bgannie bday festivities continue!
What an amazing feeling it was to stand in front of a (huge!) roomful of people and pitch the story of @pepperbra. I showed up, gave it 💯, and walked off feeling like a boss. I am so motivated by the response and feedback from the crowd last night! . (Bonus points that we placed runner up. 🏆)
