Chef Guy Vaknin is a world-renowned chef, celebrated for his distinctive plant-based creations. He and his wife developed a signature vegan brand, Beyond Sushi. 

Since then, they’ve opened multiple restaurants and launched a successful catering company. Guy believes you can start from nothing and achieve your dreams because he’s done it and learned by trial and error. 

He put in the work and learned as he went, aiming for attainable goals and steadily leveling up. It takes time and patience to build a business but as long as you keep trying, failing, and NOT quitting, you’ll make it.

In this week’s episode, you’ll learn how being raised in a Kibbutz shaped Guy’s worldview, the impact the military had on him as an entrepreneur, and what he learned from starting a business from scratch.
