“I was donating blood to my school blood drive; I was a senior in high school. And a couple weeks after that I got a letter back from the agency that was running the blood drive that said that my blood could not be accepted because it tested positive for the Hepatitis C virus. So this was a total like out of left field and I had worked hard in school and thought I was going to be carefree senior year, and then I got this letter that said you might have a potentially life-threatening virus.”
Today’s guest is Jess Dang, founder of Cook Smarts online meal planning service. Jess started Cook Smarts in 2012 to help families live healthier lives, feel empowered and inspired in the kitchen, and to lighten the mental load of meal planning.
Jess and I chat about content creation and the 5 step approach she takes in creating content for Cook Smarts that you can apply to your own business. And, she’s really the perfect guest to be chatting about content creation, since it is really what her business is built around.
Krista and I are signing up for a 30 day free trial of Cook Smarts, so we will have to keep you updated on how that goes. If you are also interested in a trial, head on over to cooksmarts.com to check it out.
