“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.”
Our guest today is an enormously successful entrepreneur who succeeded in about the toughest market a new business owner could enter. But what I love most about her is her confidence, spirit, and commitment to making the world a brighter place through everything she does.
Gail Becker’s career has spanned media, politics, and business, during which time she has held executive roles at Warner Brothers, Edelman, and the US Department of Health & Human Services.
As the mother of two boys with celiac disease, Gail grew tired of searching for healthier alternatives that were a) easy to make, and b) tasted great. In 2017, knowing she couldn’t be alone in this pursuit, Gail farewelled the corporate world and launched CAULIPOWER.
The company has been named one of Nielsen’s Breakthrough Innovators and, in a few short years, is now generating more than USD $100 million in annual revenue. CAULIPOWER is America’s #1 Cauliflower Crust Pizza, #1 Gluten-Free Pizza, and one of the top pizza brands in the market. Not bad for someone launching their first business!
Today, the company continues to expand into various categories including chicken tenders, pasta, and riced cauliflower, and is available in 30,000 stores and 5,000 restaurants in the US alone. Driving it all is Gail’s mission to eliminate the need for consumers to ever have to choose between taste, health, and convenience ever again.
Check out the YouTube or podcast version where Gail Becker does the Win the Day Rocket Round, answering questions about her favorite quote, what advice she’d give her 18-year-old self, the one thing on her bucket list, and a whole lot more. 🚀
