Marital Tips and Grassroots Marketing with Dustin Riechmann of FireCreek Snacks

How important are ingredients and company information when you choose products to purchase and consume? Dustin Riechmann of FireCreek Snacks has grown his business' reach even in the midst of a pandemic, and he tells us all about his approach to marriage, entrepreneurship, and marketing in today's podcast episode.

Dustin has an engineering background but always had that itch to be a business owner. He stumbled upon a company with a product he believed in that just so happened to be produced in his former small hometown. One thing led to another, and he is now a partner in that business and together, they are creating and marketing a product that is wholesome and nutritious for everyone, not just those in the keto space. I've had the pleasure of sampling FireCreek Snacks meat sticks and I'm looking forward to hearing about your opinion on them as well.

  • Dustin's backstory, including his interest in the low-carb space and why he chose the ketogenic lifestyle (1:56)
  • His background in engineering and why he switched paths (4:45)
  • Marriage consulting and his website with his wife, (6:55)
  • The patterns he's seen with marriages and his tips for a healthy relationship with your spouse (8:20)
