In Episode 4 of Made Possible, we take a visit to Vancouver Island’s beautiful Comox Valley to chat with Lyndsey Bell and Jay Valeri, the founders of Bigfoot Donuts.

Learn how the duo stepped away from their careers to pursue their entrepreneurial dream – running their own donut shop.

Along the way, they’ve learned how to simultaneously manage their marriage and business, how to hire the right team, and how to navigate the 18-month curveball that was the COVID-19 pandemic.

There is so much business brilliance in their story. Grab a coffee and a donut and hit that play button to learn more!
