This past week, we’ve been in Jamaica hosting our first ever Wellness Retreat with Jeff & Kalisa from The Runaway Jamaica. In this episode, they share their insight on food, cooking, and running a successful business with purpose.
Jeff and Kalisa are a Brooklyn couple of Caribbean heritage turned business partners. When an especially cold winter sent them on vacation to Jamaica, they realized it was time to pursue our dream of opening a luxury B&B in the Caribbean, so they moved to Jamaica in October 2014 and put the plan in motion. They announced The Runaway Jamaica to the world on Kickstarter in March 2015 and became the first and only B&B ever funded on the platform.
