"I remember our very first sale was to this woman -- she just had no idea how exciting it was for us to be selling in-person to a random person who wasn’t family or friend. We wanted to take a picture with her. I mean, just imagine if you went to Gap or Trader Joe’s and they got so excited they wanted to take a picture of you? You’d be like, "um can you just relax please!”" recalls Grant LeBeau, co-founder of Rickaroons.

My guest in today's episode is Grant LeBeau, co-founder of Rickaroons, the delicious energy bar founded in San Diego, Ca.
