“I wasn’t one of those kids that had a lemonade stand, you know, those entrepreneurial kids that love business!?! I had a rock collection. Like, I was one of those super nerdy science kids and it wasn’t until later, like waaay late, like a couple years ago, that I realized business could be a part of problem solving.” - Kate Jakubas

Meet Kate Jakubas and Mike Meyer, Co-Founders of Meliora Cleaning Products, a company based out Chicago, Illinois that creates all-natural laundry and home cleaning products that are both good for the planet & people.  

In this episode we cover:

  • Kate and Mike's journey from career engineers to full-time entrepreneurs. 
  • The importance of using natural and nontoxic ingredients in cleaning and laundry products.
  • Why complete transparency about the ingredients they're using, and where they're sourced, is so important to Mike and Kate.
  • Tips on how we can become wiser and more conscious consumers.
  • The challenges of the work/life balance when you're co-founder is also your life partner.
  • The power of the consumer and why it matters.

This was such a great conversation! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Happy listening!
