Elizabeth Okullow, age 24, is the CEO of a company that uses hydroponic gardening to grow organic vegetables. Okullow says she was inspired by the book The Power of Your Subconscious Mind. It occurred to her that she had a way with plants, so she began researching agricultural opportunities in Kenya. Okullow wanted to become an entrepreneur, and one day, she quit her job and set out to start her own business. She says a lot of people don’t believe her when she tells them she’s a farmer, but Okullow sees great potential in affordable hydroponic systems.
