I’m celebrating the 5 Year Anniversary of Side Hustle Pro all this month with video interviews with some of my favorite guests of all time! (So you can listen to this episode on your favorite podcast app or watch on the Side Hustle Pro YouTube Channel)

Today in the guest chair, we have Angel Gregorio, the founder and owner of The Spice Suite, a growing community-centric spice boutique, located in Washington DC’s Takoma Park community.

When we first spoke with Angel on the Side Hustle Pro podcast in 2018, she shared how she walked by a vacant storefront with no plan or desire to be a small business owner and decided on the spot to turn it into a spice shop.

That spice shop has since become a dream incubator and haven. Voted Best Spice Shop in Washington City Paper’s Best of DC, The Spice Suite offers fresh spice blends and cooking oils from around the world, handcrafted and customized to disrupt the typical dining experience.

And as a way to pay it forward and support fellow dreamers, Angel offers space at The Spice Suite for pop-up shops, free of charge. No fine print. No commission.

On this episode, hear how Angel:

  • The first steps she took to get her very first product made (and how she started all wrong!)
  • How she makes the margins work for her in eCommerce:
  • How her approach to life and business has shaped her business expansion
