From selling gummies door-to-door as a kid to working with product-based brands across the world at 23. Today’s podcast guest Laura Gomez was born in Colombia, raised in the USA. From home base Orlando, Florida, she has spent the past two years building the bilingual TDC Digital Agency with her partner Gabriel. We talk about her biggest personal lessons so far, how a mutual love for food evolved into a business, and the secret sauce to working together as a couple. “It’s not all rainbows and butterflies.”
