Your million-dollar business idea could be as simple as connecting to the wisdom passed to you through your lineage. This was the case for Chakayla Taylor, founder of The Power Plate, a spice goods company based in Charlotte, North Carolina. In this episode, Chakayla and I discuss her love for gardening, returning to our roots, and her plans to scale her company.
