#19 – On Evolving from Artist to Businesswoman, with Kylee Newton

This episode is a conversation with Kylee Newton, owner and founder of Newton & Pott, making homemade chutneys, jams & preserves. We talk about preserving food AND preserving your sanity!

Kylee’s slogan could be the well-known saying, “Waste not, want not.” She embodies these values, and she has a fascinating path to her success as a food businesswoman! After going to university for Fine Arts in New Zealand (she’s a Kiwi!), she moved to London and worked for a famous photographer for a decade in the highly-skilled endeavor of analogue screen-printing. She then made a huge life and career shift into the world of producing jams and chutneys from her little flat in Hackney, London. Her delicious and unique flavors of preserves caught the attention of passersby atBroadway Market and the editors at Penguin Random House, who asked her to write a cookbook, “The Modern Preserver.”

In the episode, Kylee shares with us how she steers her creativity in her different life pursuits and she candidly tells us some of the struggles she experiences as a small business owner.
