081 : Carson Yiu : Food Entrepreneur

outer bourough nyc food interview

Through high school Carson (@carsonyiu) was unsure of his path in life, but had acquired a love for food and cooking.

Carson is now the founder of Outer Borough which sells its signature beef rolls at the Smorgasburg Food Market in Brooklyn.

You’ll hear Carson discuss his path from passion to creation, the importance of authenticity, and that the best way to be ready for opportunities is to be making the most of the ones right in front of you.

“You want to have that first class of thinking. If you say it, even if you’re not doing it, you believe in it, and you gotta go work for it.” – Carson Yiu
