Taking on 2018 as a Millennial

I am a Millennial who was raised in the traditional household where my parents both had successful corporate careers all the way until they were about 10-15 years from retirement, when suddenly, their positions were “eliminated”. I always expected that when I graduated college I would go out into the workforce and get a job and spend the next 30-40 years working for someone else and building their fortune. That was until I learned more about being an entrepreneur.

The Millennial generation inherited a flawed world and has a zeal to repair it that is unique to our generation. It is as if our generation has been hardwired to believe in the fierce urgency of now. Everything is about today. The moment. The instant. Millennial’s are an on-demand instant-gratification generation that has become emboldened by technology and molded by world events.

So if we don’t wait for anything in our lives – why should we wait when it comes to making a difference?

This generation believes that profit and purpose can go hand-in-hand. Unlike previous generations, whose pursuits of money and excess are well documented, Millennial’s have far different goals. It is no longer simply about making money, and that is an extraordinary shift in thinking.

I am an entrepreneur in the next trillion dollar industry, the Health and Wellness Industry. My efforts are driven by making an impact, building dreams, and helping others to reach a Life Unlimited. This Natural Health Revolution was founded on the idea that Life Unlimited is possible, which is based on 4 distinct pillars: Health, Wellness and Beauty, Financial and Time Freedom, Personal Development, and Active Lifestyle.

Real NWA Roots and The JOY of Cooking

Chef Erin Rowe grew up in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.  While her roots are here in Northwest Arkansas, she and her well loved copy of The Joy of Cooking have traveled the globe. From her earliest expatriate experience  as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Caribbean, St. Lucia and the Dominica she has met the world with a youthful spirit and hearty curiosity. Meeting with Erin for this interview was sheer delight.  She enthusiastically recounts her life and travels including her schooling at Hendrix College and the University of Hawaii Maui College Culinary Arts Program.

Her culinary education and love of travel made her uniquely qualified to capture the history and delectable treasures of the Ozarks. Erin declares, “Food is what we make it and where we take it depends on knowing our history and valuing its preservation.”  Her new book, An Ozark Culinary History, Northwest Arkansas Traditions from Corn Doggers to Squirrel Meatloaf was released September of 2017.  Just thumbing through the book and seeing all of the vintage photographs made me believe that she not only wants to preserve the uniqueness of the regions’ recipes but the heart and struggles of those who came here before us.

The profound simplicity of the names of the chapters such as Corn, Wild Things and Poultry Ca

pital help highlight the struggles of those who first settled this area and how they maximized the few resources they had.  She opens the book detailing Ozark Beginnings which tells of experiences of those native to the area and those who came here for greater opportunities. Many of the recipes include names of those who created and refined them. This book is a must have for anyone who calls Northwest Arkansas home. Her book is available on Amazon, “An Ozark Culinary History: Northwest Arkansas Traditions from Corn Dodgers to Squirrel Meatloaf (American Palate)” or you may find her at one of the local events signing her book.

Becoming a new author has not distracted Chef Erin Rowe from her private catering, event planning and cooking classes. She facilitates cooking classes at Honeycomb Kitchen Shop, 213 West Walnut Street in Rogers, AR.  Erin also shared with me her vision to start a food tour business in Northwest Arkansas which is sure to be a great adventure in culinary delights.
