TheBizFix Podcast 05: Justin Trout, Co-Founder of Health-Ade Kombucha on Why Done is Better Than Perfect
Justin Trout is the Co-Founder of Health-Ade Kombucha and an entrepreneur who built his business with his wife and their best friend, “a credit card and a dream.” Health-Ade Kombucha is the fastest growing Kombucha brand in the country.
Back in 2012, Justin, his wife Dinah and their partner Vanessa hit the farmers markets of Los Angeles to introduce their home brew. Their product is on supermarket shelves across the country.
In this podcast he shares his company’s “origin story” about how he partnered with his wife who oversees the vision of Health-Ade, and their third partner Vanessa who over sees the company’s sales and distribution. Originally the team tried to farm Kombucha Scobi’s to cure hair loss. But Justin and his team pivoted their idea to farm Kombucha as a home brew.
TheBizFix team first met their team at the Brentwood Farmer’s Market 5 years ago. Justin calls The Farmer’s Market the “best business school,” for building his company. Justin also explains his story on working as an entrepreneur in the modern economy. He believes that being an entrepreneur involves using “every single tactic you can image to bend reality to your will.”
