Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in food and beverage but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Shannon Kamins, owner of Booch Organic Kombucha, located in London, Ontario, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We are the manufacturers of healing organic beverages, including kombucha and jun. We craft each beverage with quality organic ingredients and love to help heal your gut and body from the inside out!-- Oh, and we taste great.

Tell us about yourself

When I first tried kombucha, it was love at first sip. From then on, I decided to create a business that supported my purpose and passion-- crafting healing organic beverages made with local ingredients and love. I am motivated by microbes every day! We are more bacteria than human DNA cells, and it is my mission to help get beneficial microbes in people's guts every day. The more diverse a microbiome is, the better an individual can absorb food, be connected to themselves, and enhance the natural immune system. Microbes and bacteria are our friends, and they connect us to all living things.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Merging my own personal values into a business built from the passion and the mission to heal.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Having the ability to adapt to ever-changing circumstances (or curveballs!) while remaining focused and driven.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Just start!
  2. Learn how to be a great salesperson and genuinely sell your service/product.
  3. Care deeply about your employees/team.

Where can people find you and your business?
