  • How falling down while running in heels inspired the idea for her ice cream company
  • Why it took two years to actually act on her “big idea” and what finally pushed her to make the big leap

  • Felecia’s strategy for “testing” her ice cream idea using extremely limited resources (we’re talking under $200)

  • The number one reason she didn’t wait until her brand was professional or perfect before getting in front of her ideal customers

After deciding in 2008 that there had to be a better way for grown folks to enjoy ice cream than chasing down an ice cream truck in four inch heels (true story), Felecia launched her company Feverish Ice Cream and Gourmet Pops.

While it wasn’t always sunshine and sprinkles – and in fact, Felecia originally launched her business after getting laid off from her job and being unable to find another – this kick ass passionpreneur has managed to create a business and brand that has been featured everywhere from the White House to Food Network.

In six years her business has grown from two DIY popsicle carts (purchased off the luxury retailer Craigslist) to a fleet of swagged out carts and trucks serving the Miami area.

Not only is Felecia just plain awesome and a fount of business knowledge and wisdom, but this interview is particularly on time for anyone who is interested in strategies for growing their big vision on a small budget!
