Four millennial CEOs on fear, embracing change and finding what they need
Oct. 12, 2015
"My great-grandmother told me a long time ago, 'Challenges render strenth.' That saying has really stuck with me throughout my whole business career. Being open to change and being willing to listen to other people's opinions because I'm no longer making the food anymore. I no longer have my hands in the batter. But if I'm not willing to listen to the people who are actually getting their hands dirty now, then we can't better the company."

Call Jordann Windschauer an accidental entrepreneur. The 24-year-old USF graduate’s business, Base Culture— which produces and sells baked goods that fit into the suddenly hot Paleo diet — came about because of her own cravings.
She adopted the regimen — a menu of only meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds — after engaging in grueling Crossfit workouts. But — “I missed the sweets,” she said. “I couldn’t just go grab a Paleo-friendly snack at Publix, so I made my own recipes and baked them in my apartment.”

TAMPA (FOX 13) - Simple, natural, primal, that's the motto of Base Culture, all natural nut-based foods that taste good and are good for you.
"People that follow the Paleo diet, say it’s not a diet it’s a lifestyle. You make it work to fit your needs," offered Jordan Windschauer, the woman behind the Paleo-based bakery.
When she first started the Paleo way of life, she immediately noticed the difference. Her overall health improved, she was sleeping better and had constant energy, but she missed the sweets. So she decided to start experimenting with recipes using Paleo-approved ingredients, like almond and coconut flour. And she said the results were yummy. So, she started advertising her goodies on social media to friends and family and it grew organically from there.
Now, at just 23 years old, she has her own business, Base Culture.

Jordann Windschauer really wanted to eat something sweet — despite being in the middle of a Paleo Diet challenge at her CrossFit gym.
For weeks, she couldn't eat cereal grains, legumes, dairy, refined sugar, potatoes, processed foods, salt and refined vegetable oils. Fruit was sort of filling the gap, but the cookies were calling her name.
"I started going on the internet and looking into recipes," said the 23-year-old University of South Florida graduate and part-time trainer at CrossFit 813. "I tried a lot of things and I ended up making so much of it, my boyfriend would take the extras into work."
One day, the requests started to come in and The Paleo Box was born.
“The Paleo Diet is centered on cutting out preservatives, hidden sugars, additives, and other unnatural ingredients found in most commercial food brands… After taking the ‘Paleo challenge’ Windschauer was pleased with the results, but found that she was still left craving something sweet at the end of the day. So she began to experiment with different recipes in an effort to satisfy her latent cravings…”
“Before I knew it, someone offered to pay for the food and I said ok…then I started to take orders on Facebook and it grew from there,” she said.
