    I find this story empty. I want to know the process; it could have been more informative…im assuming she had great credit and took out a business loan. These stories always seem to skip that part and jump right into the success; the article had a lot of fluff.

      Hi! So I actually had HORRIBLE credit. With that $300 and every profit I saw I put back into the business so it could grow. I studied/STALKED other entrepreneurs that I admired, sorted through the “fluff” of their stories and applied everything I learned. (A few of my favs Jay-Z, Tim Ferris, Myleik Teele, Lisa Price, Ryan Holiday) Through many failures, mistakes, and dumb decisions perseverance and sickening work-ethic was a major part of my process. 🙃

    4. I loved the idea you didn’t take it out of the inner cities because we need to fix our communities and allow them to have access to valuable and healthy resources

    5. The best way to get to know the full story is to get to know the real person.

      I’m proud of you Jerri.

      You can’t put the real into a few hundred words. You had to be there to get it.

      I’m on my own journey so I can to a small extent relate.

      Keep going sis!

    9. I FINALLY made it into my local Turning Natural bar and was overwhelmed…in a good way I guess. I ended up getting the veggie patty which was scrumptious and the betabomb which was pretty good.

    11. It was about purpose, intent and motivation after the tragic loss of her mother to cancer. Despite having limited funds and being in locations being called food deserts, she actually did something about it and at the same time created successful business. I mean this is not an article in Forbes or Black Enterprise for goodness sake. After reading the article and then criticizing it as “fluff” it came across as insensitive.

    Wow, I love this place. I go there at least 2x a month. Originally, I made an effort to always stop by there and made my juice purchases because it’s black owned. But, after reading this article, I am happy that the foundation of this business is to continue on with the legacy of the owners’ mother. As long as I am in DC, you will forever have a customer in me.
