Building a Kombucha Empire Through Unexpected Hardship with Rachael Walker of Life's a Buch

Sep 17, 2020

Rachael Walker got her start in the craft kombucha industry almost 3 years ago. While working at Whole Foods, she started fermenting her own kombucha and experienced nearly immediate relief with her acid reflux and digestive issues. Her home-brewed kombucha quickly gained popularity and demand.

At the age of 26, she started, Life’s a Buch, a kombucha company based in Fort Collins, CO. In the past 3 years she has experienced great success and growth, but the success hasn’t come without a fight.

Like many businesses, Rachael faced many challenges with the onset of COVID-19 and the stay-at-home order that ensued.

In this episode, Rachael will share:

  • How she got started in the craft kombucha industry
  • The value of relationships and community within her business model
  • The challenges that COVID presented for her business and how she overcame
  • Inspiration to keep going and keep fighting to keep your dreams and business alive through unexpected circumstances
