Today’s entrepreneurs are navigating a very different world than their forefathers. The advent of the green movement, the lightning-fast speed of technology, the way we connect and find one another — all of these things make for an environment that is decidedly not “business as usual.”
Ojai residents Daron Hope, Kyle Swan, Cassandra VanKeulen, Connor Jones and Ryan O’Donnell are growing their respective businesses outside of the tired, calcified status quo, instead allowing their passions define their professional paths — and letting the rest follow naturally.
