Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Originally thought he was going to be a contractor, then an architect.
He met his co-founder, Ely Key, after moving to California to study architecture.
Ely had been making a traditional beverage called switchel in his barn, and he gave some to Garrett to try.
At the time, he says he saw all of his interests-agriculture, architecture, design-were beginning to culminate.
He was in the right place to say, "This stuff is great; let's make this happen."
They made their first batch and took it to the farmer's market, where they made a $200 dollar profit.
Now when they go to the farmer's markets, people know who they are, which Riffle says is pretty cool.
Says that your core values may change over your professional career, but when the time comes, you'll know when to take action.
