Stan Sagner is the friend-turned-mentor I wish everyone had. Running Abe’s Eats, producer of the first-ever Halal and Kosher “Interfaith Meat,” came with many hardships. As a first-time food entrepreneur, my coffee dates with Stan covered logistics and operations, to the general day-to-day craziness that food startups naturally have. Stan turned some of the most challenging moments of my small business into clear roadmaps that I could follow and feel excited about. I could not have become an entrepreneur without his mentorship, and I would not have become as driven as I am now without his support. Stan is a great friend and one of the best mentors I have ever had.
