Dan Mitchell: The Guy Who Accidentally Started a Candle Company & Then Quit His Corporate Career to Pursue Happiness (No, Seriously)

PRESENTED ON MAY 31, 2018
IN WINNIPEG @ VOL 34

"Mitchell's don't quit."

Entrepreneur Dan Mitchell shares his personal story on how he went from living a dispassionate corporate life to serendipitously starting his independent and successful candle company, Farmer's Son Co. He also shares how his family (and their motto) has given him the strength and the courage to pursue happiness in the face of risk and ultimately escape the metaphorical beige office.

Find out more about Dan and Farmer's Son Co on his website at http://www.farmerssonco.com/.

Dan's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 34, on May 31, 2018, at the Park Theatre.
