"Necessity creates opportunities in my life." Andrew Buerger was in his 40's and stuck in a declining industry. He had to find something new. While mountain climbing in Iceland, tried their traditional yogurt, Skyr. Even though he is lactose-intolerant, Andrew loved the yogurt and felt great after eating it. He came back to Maryland and figured out how to turn this into a real business. In 2015, they became the fastest growing yogurt company in the U.S. And the yogurt sales spur Jodi's Climb for Hope, which has raised over $750,000 to funding promising research on breast cancer and MS at Baltimore’s John’s Hopkins University. They are in over 3,000 stores and growing strong. Andrew and I had an enlightening conversation: Converting limitations into opportunities Making a career transition What is Skyr?
