Lisa Binns is a Brooklyn girl born and raised and she was a teacher for 20 years in the New York public school system but she just reached a point in her teaching career where she wanted to do something different, she just wasn’t sure what she was going to do next so she put it out there into the universe and it conspired to help her find her new path. “It is a complete 180 because 360 just lands you right back where you were.” 7 years later, she’s is now a Chef and Founder of Stush in the Bush, where rustic meets gourmet in the hills of Jamaica. Her and her husband Chris started and have built an organic farm and a curated experience for their guests but at the base of it all is a love story.

What are the things inspire you?” In this episode we discuss... What took her to the point of ending her 20 year teaching career in the New York public school system. The steps that she took to transition from teacher in the States to Jamaica. What new skills she had to acquire during the transition. What should guests expect when visiting Stush in the Bush. How the business model has evolved in the last 7 years. What does a typical week look like now. Her current view from the hills of Jamaica. The entrepreneurial mindset of Jamaicans. Show Notes
