This episode takes a detour from our usual discussions about coffee, but trust me, it’s a conversation you won’t want to miss. I’m absolutely thrilled to introduce you to a guest who has shaped my life in countless ways: my Uncle Jens Wendelboe. An accomplished composer, conductor, and musician, Jens is not just family, but an inspiring role model in brand building, career development, and a whole lot more.
In our conversation, we delve into the essence of building a successful career, navigating the challenges, and the rewarding experiences that come along the way. From his amazing experiences working with music legend Donna Summer, to an unforgettable encounter with Neil Armstrong, Jens takes us on a journey of discovery. We’ll also discuss why sometimes, not saying no can open doors, the importance of quality control in any industry, and how I’ve applied these principles when setting up my own coffee business.
