Lisa talks to Zoey Henderson about how she turned her love for functional mushrooms into a thriving craft-ale business, and answers the two questions on everyone's mind when they hear about a beer made from fungus: does it taste like mushrooms, and will it get you high?!
Why do so many of us absolutely HATE selling and how do you get over it? In this episode, David takes a look at how you can reframe 'selling' into 'helping' - because if your product genuinely solves someone's problem then it's your duty to help them become a customer.

Liz Douglas multiplied her following almost 10x to 103k in just 3 months (and it keeps on growing).
To celebrate our first year anniversary, David tells the story of where Vegan Business Tribe came from, how it grew so quickly, and how testing the concept proved that all our assumptions about what we THOUGHT people wanted were utterly and completely wrong!
You may have been told that vegan is too much of a fad to launch into, or it’s too small a marketplace to grow a successful business. But what’s the truth about that, and if that’s the case why are so many vegan businesses growing so quickly right now? Let's take a look at how big the marketplace is for a vegan business or service.
Would you launch a business if you had no idea how much it cost to make your product? No, of course not. So why would you launch a business without spending the same time working out how much it was actually going to cost you to get a customer?
