Feeding a Dream
WRITTEN BY Alysha Stoffel
A vision and hard work is sometimes all it takes to launch the business of your dreams. Last week, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire senior, Daniel Beck, soft launched his meal prep business, Midwest Meals. As an entrepreneur student, Beck was able to learn the basics of starting a business in the classroom, but was really challenged when he took the steps to actually implement his idea. In March, Beck received a first place prize after he pitched Midwest Meals to a panel of judges at UW-Eau Claire’s Swim with the Sharks Business Pitch Competition. With his prize, he was able to kick off his business two months later. Throughout the process of opening his business, Beck emphasizes the importance of loving the mission. “It’s very rewarding aligning your work life with your passions,” he states. Congratulations, Dan! To learn more about Midwest Meals, visit www.midwestmeals.com.
