EP104: Building a successful e-com brand around healthy snacking w/ Nick Neve

Nick Neve is an actor turned Amazon seller who created a successful e-commerce brand around healthy snacking. In this episode we explore the business model behind his Snack Box company, talk about the sometimes harsh realities of being a small business owner as well as discussing the food industry at large. And of course, it wouldn’t be a New Wave episode without some discussions on philosophy, ayahuasca and other esoteric gems! Towards the end of this episode, pay particular attention to some great book recommendations!
