Friend(ly) Friday: Linda Kim

welcome to another edition of friend(ly) friday, where i talk up awesome people that i know. my first post was about my gorgeous model friend amanda, and today i'm introducing you to linda kim, founder of pulse roasted chickpeas.

i first met linda in october 2012. we had signed up for a free entrepreneur course called fastrac newventure. the class was filled with about 20 people who were planning to launch a new business or currently in the midst of a launch. i was planning a launch and linda was very close to starting her business.

she explained that she had the idea of selling roasted chickpeas for several years, but had just recently decided to finally take the leap and make it happen. and within a matter of months after the class ended, she started selling her first batch of products at farmer's markets and trade shows. she also started doing demos at local health food stores. and of course, she launched her online shop where consumers can buy her product directly.

i can't say enough how proud i am of my friend. she's done several successful sales with and her product can be found in local nyc stores like organic avenue. plus she also recently become a top 10 finalist for a specialty food ad campaign contest.

i have the feeling you'll see more about linda and her pulse brand more in the next few months, but for the time being, you can say that you heard about her here first!
