Eating right means different things to different people. Some swear by the Keto diet; some by low carb, some by high carb. But the common denominator to all these eating philosophies is that meal prep and macro-tracking take precious time. That’s where Fresh Life Meal Prep of Kingsley comes in.

Founded by Chef/Owner Nevada Rector, Fresh Life Meal Prep seeks to bring back the true health benefits of farm to table with ease. According to Rector, “my love for food and our small family farm has turned into this unique adventure I hope to share, not only in food but in teaching the ways of the true cycles of food from seeds to feeding us to feeding animals which in return feed us. This beautiful cycle has been lost and I hope to bring its importance back.”

That desire launched a thriving small business, thanks in part to the help of the MI-SBDC and business consultant Sam Augusta. Rector received one-on-one counseling and recently graduated from the Business Development Certificate Program, a collaborative program between the MI-SBDC and Northwestern Michigan College.

“Sam helped me helped me get into the program via a scholarship. He also reviewed my presentation materials and gave great feedback for the TCNewTech pitch competition,” said Rector – who won first place.

Today Fresh Life Meal Prep has an on-site fully licensed and operational kitchen and a business which is surpassing weekly sales goals in just seven weeks.

“The MI-SBDC and its business development program gave me the confidence to push forward and launch my business that otherwise would have just been a dream. I am very thankful for the information I received and will continue to use the resources introduced to me. As a young woman trying to get into the business world can be quite intimidating and you need all the direction you can get. So my advice: if you have a dream, make a leap and ask for help when needed,” added Rector.
