Stacy Pores is owner of 2 Chicks & a Gluten-Free Kitchen based out of Haywood County, N.C. When she was diagnosed with celiac and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), she started experimenting with gluten-free baking and found it to be a passion. That hobby turned into a full-time career and a business called 2 Chicks & a Gluten-Free Kitchen. Stacy loves creating delicious goodies for people who not only have dietary restrictions but also for folks who are working hard to limit the additives and GMO products they consume. Rumble sat down with Stacy to learn a little more about the business.
In the south, we are taught to be friendly to strangers. Not wanting to appear rude, we walk down streets giving passersby a smile or nod to acknowledge them. Currently, I am spending some time in France refreshing my language skills and enjoying their culture. I just learned recently that for the French, making eye contact with a stranger is considered to be rude. The French prefer to save their energy for people they know and care about. If you look them in the eye or smile and then say bonjour, the assumption is that you know them. If they do not recognize you, they think you attempting to manipulate them because you are engaging in such an informal manner or that you are flirting. This, incidentally is not the time when they choose to flirt if they were raised well.
The weather forecast called for a 50 percent chance of rain, but we stuck with our plan to go camping. We loaded the car in a drizzle and decided we would take our chances. We drove 45 minutes, set up our tent and started a fire. We made hamburgers and grabbed a drink. There was no sign of rain that night.
In today’s world, with access to information and trading platforms available online, investing is more accessible now than ever. Though my personal experience as an investor began in the 1990s, I believe other women may learn from my experiences and perhaps choose differently prior to having similar experiences.
