This week we’re talking to Khadijah Polly about how she took one of the simplest ideas - Kettle Corn, and grew it into booming business.
Khadijah always had the entrepreneurship blood, and she always had a business that she was working for. Not long after getting laid off, she used a skydiving trip as the motivation she needed to go all in her business. She started making popcorn at home, and selling it to office employees for snacks. Before long, she started doing events, servicing colleges, and even created a popcorn subscription business.
One of the things I love about Khadijah’s story is how she was able to infuse all of her interests and skills that she learned during here 9 to 5 years into this business. So for all of us that are thinking: “What can I actually take from my career or business that will make sense for my business idea?” Listen to this episode! If Khadijah can incorporate HR skills into a popcorn business, there has to be at least one thing we can all incorporate from our own day jobs!
