For years, Rachel Hofstetter was paid to eat and drink as the food editor at O, the Oprah Magazine. But besides the copious amounts of chocolate and cheese, her favorite part of the job was talking with up-and-coming food entrepreneurs. Their stories led to her best-selling book Cooking Up a Business (Penguin), an insider guide to the world of food startups. As she wrote the book, Rachel picked up the entrepreneurial itch (it’s contagious!), and took the opportunity to focus on her true passion: connecting people in unique and creative ways. She’s now the co-founder of guesterly, a software platform that enables anyone to create a custom who s who guide for events and groups, and PR School, which helps makers and creators get the word out about their brands and connect directly with editors and writers.
