Featured on the Today show!

Suddenly my wife is screaming at me "Mike, come downstairs, now!  Hurry...!"  The kids are in school, the weather is great, no phone call had come in that i heard...what could POSSIBLY be wrong to be of such urgency?

The answer?  "Good Life Granola is being talked about on the Today Show!"  Sweet Holy Moly!

We have been a friend of Jason Sadler from Iwearyourshirt.com for a while now and he had been a HUGE supporter and loves our product (so does hi Mom, Dad, Sister, Grandma and Grandpa).  Well, Sara Haines from the Today show was filming at his location a couple of weeks ago.   Jason passed on a bag for her to try...she loved it...and we then followed up with some more product direct to the Today show.  

Thanks for the support everyone and

Wow...it was quite a week. We have had a tremendous amount of new Fan on Facebook these past 4 days. I think we have increased 65 in a very short time. It is nice to have so many fans who recommend others to join. I can tell they really love the product when they do that.

Today was the day that Good Life Granola was featured on eightWest.  I loved the story and thought they did a nice job telling the background as well as showing some of the production. Dee (the inventor and my wife) as well as Brad (our Son) were also shown.
You can see the clip here:


For those who missed the story on the kitchen we use....here is the link to that story too:

Have you ever really looked forward to a day.  Like wishing tomorrow would come even faster because it was your birthday or you were leaving for that dream vacation?  Well that's how this week was and also continues to be.

We had a special visitor at the Good Life Granola Kitchen on Tuesday.  Terri DeBoer from WoodTV8 and the show eightWest.  Terri and I have been corresponding for quite a few weeks about the possibility highlighting our product on the show.  I knew she liked the product and she has even mentioned it before on the show but the date kept being pushed back for various reasons like a bigger story coming up....I joked that we were the big story!

Well Tuesday was finally the day.  Terri and her crew of two were afforded a beautiful day to travel north to the kitchen.  They arrived around noon and we had everything prepared to show the different steps in the process of making the oh so delicious Good Life Granola.  With everyone in hairnets they were able to film us in action...and even got a chance to do an in kitchen interview.  Our son Brad joined us in the kitchen to help (how else would he want to spend spring break from college) and you can see him in action too.

The side bonus was their ability to feature the kitchen we use as well.  There are multiple businesses that operate out of the kitchen incubator called the Starting Block and I am sure there will additional interest from our food entrepreneurs once their story runs on Monday.

So we looked forward to last Tuesday and it has passed...now we look forward to next Tuesday as well....tick tock, tick tock....

Watch for us on WoodTV 8 in Grand Rapids Michigan or live online on eightWest 11:00 AM  EST on 3/16
and on 3/15 Terri will feature the Starting Block.

Shaker Messenger sells tons of GLG!


We are very pleased that a total of 13 locations are now selling GLG in Michigan and Wisconsin! Word is spreading and we appreciate the ideas and outlet names that have been given to us.
The first store to sell our product was "The Shaker Messenger" in beautiful downtown Holland Michigan (the second happiest place in the U.S.). Diana Van Kolken is the cheery and very persuasive owner. She is always smiling when you walk in the door and you are promptly greeted by her or her staff. Persuasive, because if she likes something, and we KNOW she loves GLG, you will be encouraged to taste or try....and then you will buy!
I have been called on the weekend a number of times to quickly bring more GLG to her store because she is out again! But there are more products sold there than granola, there is also a ton of other Michigan Based food products too. It is a great way to support the Michigan economy and also taste the best of the best.

Next time you are in Holland make a stop at 210 S.River Ave, or call 616.396.4588, or visit the website for a peek at the other items carried.
