Entrepreneurship at Its Finest

Posted on July 27, 2015

Ever wonder if your child or friend could have the opportunity to create their own product? Well there is indeed a way for that to happen. It all starts with Taste of Immokalee.

Like many of you, I, too, wished for the opportunity to create a product of my own. Ever since the age of ten I knew that I was meant for business. As my dad would always tell me at the farmers market, “You’re one sharp girl” whenever I would yell out to customers in efforts to buy tomatoes and jalapenos. From then on, I knew I could do anything I set my mind to.

Being part of Taste of Immokalee has definitely opened my mind to a whole new spectrum of opportunities. Networking has been one of my favorite experiences. Having the opportunity to meet NBA players, CEO’s, accountants, lawyers, and doctors has been such a blessing. Sharing my experiences and connecting with successful businesspeople is great and, to this day, continues to be a thrill!

Taste of Immokalee opened a new world of opportunities which ultimately allowed us to go beyond our comfort zones. Whether through sales, promotions, or even marketing at special events, we were able to delve into unfamiliar situations and learn what truly goes on in the business world. We were not sitting back and reading different scenarios; we were taking charge and living them out. Taste of Immokalee has been a truly great experience and I will continue to look back on it as I venture into the next stage of my life.
