My wild and wonderful guest today is Mitchell Stern, a mental health advocate, and co-founder of Station Beverage Traders also known as Canada’s Cold Brew Coffee company based out of Toronto Ontario. But Mitch is much more than just the cold brew coffee guy, he is a creative at heart and a model new age entrepreneur. He does this through sharing his personal mental health story and to be of service to his community in more ways than running an environmentally conscious and socially responsible business. We are joined by Tyler Bryden who was on Ep. 4 as Tyler is also a mental health advocate and entrepreneur. Recorded remotely just days into lockdown the discussion dives into the uncertainty that lies ahead for small local businesses and entrepreneurs. We share lessons we learned from starting small businesses and how we coped and worked at improving mental health in times of stress and uncertainty. Main take home is that we are still learning these lessons and they never stop. Enjoy the show!
