“Something that I really think is important to identify is: how do you want to take up space in your industry? What does that look like for you?”



Check out our latest episode of Beyond the Recipe with Todo Verde's Jocelyn Ramirez and entrepreneur Zoila Darton of Our House LA and Word Agency, discussing motivation, handling challenges, favorite recipes, and more.
