A year and a half ago I quit my job and sold my car to pursue my dream of owning my own business. That business launches today! AMA!
A little about me: When I was about nine, my dad (a Marine on deployment) sent me and my brother an unexpected package from Japan. It was full of the craziest snacks and candy I have ever seen. Nine-year-old me was in awe. Everything was so much different than what we think of when we think about snack food.
About a year and a half ago, I remembered that package and I wondered if a company sent out surprise international snack boxes. Surprisingly I found nothing. Not a thing. So I set out to make it reality. I quit my boring dead-end job as a bartender and sold my car for business capital. For the past year I've been developing the website from the ground up. The premise is simple. Every month you get a box of snacks from a completely different country and you will never know which one it is until it arrives. I think its pretty cool.
I've dedicated the past year and a half of my life to make this happen. It's been a great learning experience (and sometimes frustrating) and its finally complete.
I'd love to answer your questions about International snack food, web development, starting a business, ANYTHING. AMA!
