Michaela Teasley, Tally Kombucha, Tallahassee, FL
Q: When did you first discover kombucha?
A: I was having gut issues right after having my first child and after months of feeling a decline in my overall health my mom gifted me with her personal stash of kombucha. Within 10 to 15 minutes I could feel my stomach deflate, my mood change and no more tummy ache.
Q: Why did you start your own kombucha company?
A: Well I intended it just for it to be for my family but after sharing it with other moms in my mommy group and selling off my additional scobies I took a moment and wondered if this could be something bigger. I let the thought go and got contacted by a local restaurant about carrying our kombucha and knew it was time to make this bigger.
Q: What is your favorite flavor of kombucha?
A: Health Aid-Pink Apple
Q: What is your former/current other life or career?
A: I was a business consultant for startups and small businesses specializing in marketing and strategic planning, but the time came to where I needed to have my own business
Q: What is a saying that you live by?
A: be the change you want to see in the world- Mahatma Gandhi
