episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from business leader and
entrepreneur, Tara Bosch. In her conversation with Jeremy, Tara
opens up about why she started SmartSweets, how she began the
production process, challenges she faced along the way, what it
took to expand the team, and much more. Don’t miss a minute of this
compelling and engaging episode featuring Tara’s story!
Do you have that one person in your corner who you can count on day in and day out? Maybe for you, it’s a parent or childhood friend. What challenges has that person helped you through? For business leader Tara Bosch, the person who was there to encourage her along the way was her grandmother. Tara fondly looks back at the time she spent with her grandmother and points to their mutual love of sweets that led her to start SmartSweets in the first place. Not only is it a good idea to stop and remember those who have helped you on your journey, but it’s also a good idea to consider who you can do the same for.
While it’s helpful to have family members and mentors in your corner, the one constant through your whole life will the be the person you see in the mirror. How do you treat yourself? Do you give yourself enough slack? Do you challenge yourself enough? One important lesson that Tara Bosch has learned on her journey is the value of keeping your self-talk positive. Often the business leader can be their own worst critic, take it easy on yourself! Think of inner dialogue as your number one fan, not your number one critic. This simple mindset shift can have a significant impact on your chances of success both personally and professionally.
Let’s face it; the average American is hooked on sugar, it’s almost as ubiquitous as salt! From salads to cereal, sugar is in much of the food you eat. What do you do if you want to kick sugar from your diet? How do you do that while still enjoying deserts and snacks? SmartSweets created the first candy that kicks sugar naturally. Their snacks are free from added sugar, sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners. Every ingredient they use is non-GMO, always real and never artificial.

Have you found that one thing that lights you up? Are you able to pursue that passion professionally? Tara Bosch knew that starting a business selling sugar-free candy was a huge risk, but she jumped in head first because she knew it was what she was meant to do. Tara started SmartSweets after her love affair with candy turned into an unhealthy relationship with food. She experienced the adverse effects sugar has on our health, and she wanted to be part of the solution. This venture was far from easy for Tara; she struggled for months recipe testing in her kitchen with a gummy bear mold from Amazon until she finally found the right formula. The challenges only increased from there, but Tara was committed and saw the process through. Now SmartSweets is a thriving business moving forward and helping people finally kick sugar from their diet.
