Welcome to the Passion & Prosperity podcast.  I created this podcast out of a love of speaking with people who have leveraged their passion to create something interesting and extraordinary. Whether it’s a business, a brand or even a hobby, I’m truly enamored when people combine vision and determination to generate prosperity in their lives.  It is my hope these stories will inspire you to consider what illuminates your soul and perhaps even provide some guidance on how to create more abundance in your life.

PP020 | Courtney Ray Goodson: In Episode #20 of Passion & Prosperity, I speak with Courtney Ray Goodson.  Courtney Ray is the Founder of Uncle Ray’s Peanut Brittle.  Her journey to becoming The Brittle Babe began with a stint in the Peace Corps, where her sweet uncle sent her care packages containing his homemade brittle.  Courtney Ray shared the brittle with the locals and even used it as a fundraising tool for a local woman in Fiji.  Upon her return to the States, her ongoing exploration and personal development – as well as her sharing some brittle with her mentor – helped her to uncover some of her own creative talents and led to the launch of her company.  Courtney Ray also continues to be inspired by Charles Bukowski.  I hope you enjoy!

ps – while Courtney Ray may be famous for her Bacon Pecan Brittle (yes, bacon) my favorite is the Pecan Brittle.  Mmmm, brittle.
