I’m so excited to have Darby Jackson, wellness entrepreneur and co-founder of Après plant-based protein shakes, with me on today’s show.
After Darby stopped playing water polo for UC Berkeley, she grew a business as a personal trainer and a health coach. Her clients often asked her, “what should I eat after I workout?”.
Darby struggled to answer that question until she met Sonny McCracken. Together they created Après, a beverage company that makes clean protein shakes with high-quality ingredients.
On today’s show, Darby talks about her wellness entrepreneurship career, what she has learned about fundraising and pitching to investors, how Après has positioned itself in the competitive protein industry and much more.
