Episode 27. Are your customers part of a community? Do you actively educate your customer base to make them more informed consumers? Joe Stout is the President of Mt. Capra Products, a family-owned, sustainably-managed goat dairy located in Centralia, WA. After receiving a Masters of Science in Clinical Human Nutrition and a Bachelors of Science degree in Human Nutrition and Food Science from Washington State University, Joe found himself in a position to take the lead of the family business. In our conversation, we discuss how (even as an infant), Joe has had a unique perspective regarding the nutritional qualities of goat milk products. We also delve into how such a simple commodity like goats milk, can spin-off into many different consumer realms and business opportunities. Are you seeing all the customer groups for your core product or service? Are you creating systems in your business so that it doesn't require YOU to make it function? Joe's story will stretch your thinking and inspire you. You may even walk away with a new belief in how you can truly effect people with your business. Not only that, the end has a surprise testimonial by Brian's wife Kate Pombo regarding their son Lucas and Mt. Capra's Goat Milk Formula ingredients. Listen Now! Find out more about Joe Stout and Mt.
