Life is strange and beautiful and it’s surprises are what make it worth living. For Randy, surprise twists abound along a career path that began as a geologist and has arrived at a role as a tea entrepreneur. So, how does one move from investigating the great cycles of water and rock that shape the surface of the Earth to blending amazing tea and serving it in a cozy tea house? It all comes down to choices.
Stay with the familiar, with what you know, a place of stability and the comfort of predictability? Or venture into the unknown, a place where the stakes are high, a place of magic or disaster? For Randy, the choice was made in one of many soul-searching conversations that he and Nikol had while they decided whether or not to embark on the small-business adventure that has become Good Medicine. Always the seeker and visionary, Nikol asked Randy a pivotal question:
“Imagine the potential for success on your current path, and imagine the potential if we follow this dream.” It was the possibility, the potential that Good Medicine held that convinced Randy that it was worth putting heart and soul into trying, and never look back.
Randy’s work is integral to Good Medicine spanning and connecting all aspects of the business from production, to sales, to events, to serving tea and visiting with customers in the Good Medicine Lounge. Working with Nikol’s vision and ability to see the future (!), and with the help of an amazing team, Randy tries to be the wheels that make Good Medicine go.
