In this episode of TrepStarz, we're joined by Nick Fairman, owner and founder of Go Juice New Smyrna Beach and Go Juice Nosara, Costa Rica. Go Juice provides fresh juices, smoothies, banana coffee and, when available, a fresh poke bowl at the Costa Rica location. Nick was raised in Central Florida, but spent a lot of time traveling the world on surf trips. After college, Nick worked in sales for a software startup. After being on planes week after week, he was burnt out and decided to quit and move down to Costa Rica. Once there, the plan was to teach surf lessons and to figure out how to make enough money to stay down there. Things went in a slightly different direction. Nick made some friends that encouraged him to start a smoothie business. He scrapped together some equipment, learned how to make smoothies, came up with the name 'Go Juice' and dove in. The business was gaining momentum and the idea came up to expand back to the states. They decided New Smyrna Beach was the perfect location. After nearly a year of planning and waiting on permits, Go Juice NSB was born. Nick shares some great lessons he learned along the way, obstacles he's had to overcome and offers up some great advice on being present and taking chances. Tune in and be inspired!
