Audrey Barron: Dream and Take Action | The Small Business BIG IDEA Show
Audrey Barron is the owner of Ezra’s Enlightened Café, a plant-based restaurant in Indianapolis, Indiana. In this episode, Audrey shares the incredible story of how she transformed an unused garage into a working commercial kitchen and café. If you’re in the retail or restaurant business, you will especially appreciate the obstacles that she had to overcome in order to bring her concept to life. Audrey’s evolution from teaching plant-based meal prep classes and working as a personal chef to ultimately opening up her own store and sustainable farm is an inspiring story. Dealing with the ups and downs of building and managing a team of employees and defining work-life balance in a way that works for her and her staff are just a few of the many topics that Audrey covers during our conversation. And if you’re a newly minted entrepreneur, pay particular attention to her timeless advice: Be prepared for whatever you launch to take longer and cost more money than you originally projected!
