I bring in a lot of experts on the podcast but today I wanted to bring in someone just like you and me. Today we are taking a peek behind the scenes of a real startup story. Get ready to be inspired to see how you can create a successful business on the side of your day job too!

How Meghan Covert-Russell Grew Her Physical Product Business On The Side of Her Day Job
Founder of Poppy and Oak. They create custom and curated boxes featuring goods from local makers and farmers markets in Northern California. Working hard on this on the side of her day job! I got to meet her last month her in San Diego when she was here for a convention for her day job.
CRP Wins: #crpwin I launched my website mid-October. I just donated enough money (I’ve pledged to donate a % of each sale) to our local food bank to purchase over 1,000 lbs of fresh produce for local needy families! Thank you so much, Anna Runyan, for your guidance and encouragement in getting this little passion project off the ground. I’m so floored that I was able to make such a big impact in my local community already.
#CRPwin Git my first bulk order (11 boxes) from an IG contact! Thanks so much, Anna Runyan for your encouragement and help — you motivated me to start a business IG account, put in the work (posting 1-2 times a day) and it’s definitely paying off now! One more week is the hilidaybhstle, and then I’m looking forward to some time off to plan for 2018 (and review Phase 1 &2). Thank you!
Thanks for being here Meghan!! Let’s dive in.
