Here are a few excerpts from the interview:
The Mo'Kelly Show: Where were you in your life 3 years ago?
Suite Four Sparkling Wine: This business wasn't even at the top of mind. I was working but I knew there was something bigger for me. I was looking to find something that felt organic... I was looking to find my place in the world.
TMKS: When did the "light bulb" come on for you?
SFSW: I actually left Washington, D.C. to move back home to LA with my parents to be able to refocus. Being at home allowed me to stretch myself because I didn't have a reason not think big because I didn't have the pressure of bills and responsibility piling up....
TMKS: ... About Your dream... What type of feedback were you getting from friends and family regarding your future?
SFSW: I kept it to myself. I may have told 3 people. I just worked. I didn't tell people until I got to the point where I was ready to launch. I waited because... I didn't want to be discouraged (by non-supporters).
TMKS: So, take me to the first step that you took after realizing your dream?
SFSW: It was to take some classes! This industry as is not an easy industry.
TMKS: I'm sure at some point in your journey where you said.. "This is far more work than I envisioned" Am I right?
SFSW: Absolutely! There are still days like that! But I was set on finishing. I put my whole life savings on the line, so [I said] IT HAS TO HAPPEN.
