When to Stop Trying New Things and Commit to a Project - Julie Hession

In Chapter 13 of 21 in her 2011 Capture Your Flag interview, food entrepreneur Julie Hession answers "How Do You Balance Experimentation and Commitment in the Projects You Pursue?"  Hession, who owns a Julie Anne's Granola Company, learns to find balance between growing existing initiatives and starting new ones.  She finds outside projects - reality show submissions, cooking contests, a recipe blog - a good way to push herself creatively without shifting from her core business focus. Passionate about food since childhood, Hession has developed her career by food blogging, cooking contests, and starting fine food companies.  Hession earned an MBA in Marketing from Duke University and a BA from UNLV.
