We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Goff and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brittany, how do you think about risk?
Everything worth having requires being uncomfortable. We quit growing the moment we live in complete comfort. Living a life that matters requires making educated decisions both in personal life and business ownership that are motivated by our greater “why”. Being an effective risk-taker is part of being a successful business owner. Not every risk is going to play out as a home run BUT it is all worth it for the few that are. Starting a female-owned, small business was a risk. Placing our first large product order was a risk. Hosting our first large event in Dallas was a risk. Starting a podcast was a risk. I can say I do not look back on any of those leaps of faith with regret but instead with great peace that I had the courage at the right time to say “let’s try this”.
What should our readers know about your business?
My business, Wheat and Honey Co., is 4 years old. We started as a small stationery shop and are now a full online business selling hand-painted Bibles, Bibles in partnership with large Christian publishers, and Bible studies. We have a team of women that write weekly devotionals on our Wheatful Wednesday blog, as well as the Wheatful Woman Podcast. We have the largest selection of hand-painted Bibles that give back, ship fast, and are crafted by artists around the world. One of the most favorite parts of this business, to me personally, is the many women that are touched through what we do. Not only is Wheat and Honey Co. my full-time gig, but we employ, serve and give back to women around the world. We partner with an organization, Valiant Hearts and Freedom Shield Foundation, that rescues women from the sex trafficking industry and leads them to restoration by gifting Bibles to each woman as they graduate from their program. The gifting of custom Bibles is a representation of the unique love we have in our faith and belief that our lives have a greater purpose when we know our identity in Christ. Owning a business has easily been the biggest challenge of my life while equally being one of my greatest blessings. I’m thankful for the way I have been challenged and grown through the journey and look forward to the road ahead!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I live in Grapevine, TX and LOVE the Dallas/Fort Worth community. I always take my friends to local restaurants (Mi Dia, Cafe Italia, Taco Head) and enjoy showing off Historic Grapevine and the homes in our local community that have such character and charm!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Every opportunity I’ve had has been because of the many people, in the right place at the right time, that have been on the journey with me. I’m thankful for my family, friends, Wheat and Honey Co. and Wheatful Woman teams, our customers and podcast listeners, and all the women I respect in our industries. We spur one another on and could not do it alone. Thank you.
