In this episode, I interview JL Fields, vegan lifestyle coach and educator, Food for Life instructor, co-creator of Real World Vegan Meal Plans, kitchen coach, personal chef, career coach, and a corporate consultant offering wellness training, brand representation, and strategic planning services.
JL runs the popular blog JL Goes Vegan and she’s the host of the Easy Vegan with JL Fields show on KCMJ, which is Colorado Springs Community Radio.
She’s the author of the book Vegan Pressure Cooking and co-author of Vegan for Her.
She’s a graduate of Victoria Moran’s Main Street Vegan Academy – and in fact she’s now on the teaching faculty. So, she’s got a very diverse range of offerings in her business.
This is another audio interview I did for my book Vegan Ventures: Start and Grow an Ethical Business.
JL’s story is an inspiring one, because she spent many years working in the not-for-profit sector before deciding to make a sea change in middle age. This is important, because we often hear about people starting businesses when they’re younger, in their 20s and 30s and JL is a great example of how it’s possible to create a business based on your passions – at any age.
In this interview JL talks about:
• How she gets her local media to give her free publicity on a regular basis
• The importance of being flexible in your business offerings and utilising skills and contacts you’ve built up over your professional life
• How taking a stand and speaking out about what she believes in helped grow her profile and business
• And much more
