Turning A Hobby Into A Business

John and Stacy Currie, Veteran On The Move

About This Episode  

Do you have a hobby that you have been wanting to turn into a business, but haven’t had that push to make it happen? Today I am joined by long-time friend John Currie and his wife Stacy to talk about their thriving salad dressing and marinade business, Semper Savage. A business that was fueled by a passion of salad, encouraged by friends and family, and ultimately created because of a humorous Christmas gift.

About Our Guests  

John Currie served 23 years in the USMC and has continued serving stateside and overseas in civilian life. John began making salad dressing for family and friends in 2009 in a quest for a truly great salad dressing. He is the founder and guiding force behind Semper Savage.
