Welcome to Season 2 of the Aravinda Show!

To start this season off, I was honored to interview Sean and Ashley, founders of Nicoco Hawaiian Gelato. In this interview, we get to hear about their remarkable meeting in New York, landing on the wrong island (that turned out to be right), bootstrapping their business, and growing it to where it is today.

For season two, I’m interviewing conscious entrepreneurs: business owners who are conscious of their impact on their community, the environment, and the planet; and I can’t think of a better couple to start with. Even if their gelato didn’t taste even MORE delicious than ice cream, I would have interviewed them because they just have a wonderful energy; you can really tell they radiate the Aloha Spirit.

Update: PART 2 has been posted!

Enjoy, and be sure to SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss any of the rare interviews I have coming up.
