Podcast #69 · Daphna Nissenbaum · Pioneering Compostable Flexible Packaging
“Building your own business is full of challenges, day in and day out. The glory is tiny at the end, maybe…[You have to] take baby steps, solving the day to day problems, but always look at the horizon and the big mission that we’re all here for. For me it’s not an easy journey but because I believe in the mission, I keep leading it, keep fighting for it. I believe eventually it will happen.“Daphna Nissenbaum
