This is a fun one! I'm sitting down with Bec and Joe Winston, the brains behind The 4 Blades, a brand in a niche that I never knew existed. What is that niche? It's a kitchen appliance called the Thermomix. You've probably never heard of Thermomixes, but Bec and Joe have built a vibrant digital publication, podcast, and community around them.
Bec and Joe's brand is an incredible success story, and it just goes to show what you can accomplish when you focus on what you're passionate about. They have a successful brand because of their amazing personalities and perseverance—all in a realm I never even knew about. They are truly living the lifestyle they want, and it's all because of the action they've taken and the value they provide. Hopefully you'll all be motivated and inspired after hearing this episode. Enjoy!
