Tal Moore discovered his knack for business at the ripe young age of 12 years old. Selling gumballs to his friends ultimately led him to launch Gumballs.com, one of the largest online vending machine retailers. Tal is also the founder of many other businesses, including Franklin’s Popcorn, Guardline Security, and Softy Wipes. He has given so much to the ECF community over the years and I’m excited to have him here.
Listen in as Tal shares his story through entrepreneurship, including how he managed to have the conviction to turn down a sales offer for Guardline, the personal toll it took on him, and how he decided to stay the course with the business. We also talk about how the downturn in his business actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise when the pandemic hit, as well as how COVID played a role in the subsequent upturn. This is part one of a two-part episode, so make sure to check out the next episode to hear more from Tal!
