Business Consulting

Lets be honest, the road to "success" is unclear and means something different to every business, brand or individual. This is true in the Kombucha community where new brands are popping up everyday, each with their own ideas of what Kombucha "is" or "isn't", and their own idea of how they define themselves. Some want to create the best niche artisan craft kombucha and other want to be the Brew Dog of the Kombucha world. Each of these are equally correct in their thoughts and ambitions.
