Cristie Besu is the founder of Eat Me Guilt Free, a healthy product line of snacks and sweets. The first generation Cuban-American built her own empire eight years ago, but it wasn’t easy.
“Being a Hispanic female from Miami, we’re an up and coming city, but I think we’ve had a lack of resources everywhere because it hasn’t been hundreds of years that we’ve been doing this. We’re still figuring it out. That’s where I think the biggest challenge is. That’s where all the other granular issues come from,” said Besu.
