Episode Info

Episode Info:

Lagusta Yearwood founded Lagusta’s Luscious, an artisinal vegan chocolate company in 2003. Over the last 16 years, she has grown the chocolate business into 3 brick-and-mortars— a chocolate shop and a café in New Paltz, New York, and a sweets shop in Manhattan’s East Village. She also just came out with a brand new cookbook titled SWEET + SALTY: The Art of Vegan Chocolates, Truffles, Caramels and More.

Lagusta and Julia talk about Lagusta's businesses, her book, the complication of operating a business while also questioning capitalism, the power of listening to your employees and developing systems, knowing how and when and why to grow, and how to navigate working with friends.
