Highlighting gr8ness: Meet Ian Wessen

Tell us about yourself:

I’m currently working in SF as a frontend engineer. I love designing and developing really cool things and putting them on the internet. I’m also a baseball junkie, a coffee fiend, and I’ve watched Jurassic Park over 30 times.


What inspires you to be gr8?

I make lists and document my little daily victories. Over time, I build up heaps of things I’ve done, learned, visited, eaten, made, broken, and fixed. Tracking progress and making tiny steps every day is my little way of gaming myself to do gr8 things.


I #eatgr8nola…because I love not feeling hungry until lunch.

I start every day with a mug of coffee and a bowl of gr8nola over plain greek yogurt. Then I forget about eating until lunch. It’s delicious and convenient!!


1-2 quick liner quote/testimonial about gr8nola:

Right there with coffee and NPR, gr8nola is a routine part of my morning. It tastes great, it fills me up, and gets the day started off right.

"A gr8 life is a sum of gr8 days - I’m inspired to create my dream day every day through action and choice. I am constantly inspired by people who are not afraid to be themselves and be vulnerable."

This is a huge milestone, especially since I knew nothing about Instagram prior to starting this for my granola business. But when you're trying to build a consumer brand out of pure scrappiness, you have no choice but to get your hands dirty and learn.
