Teresa Goines – Gold Within Youth

I’m excited to start off Season 2 with Teresa Goines. As a nineteen year old waitress in a small diner, Teresa swore she’d never end up owning a restaurant. Today, Teresa is the founder and CEO of Old Skool Cafe, a jazz-themed supper club run by at-risk youth in San Francisco.

Listen to her story of how she got there and how seeing gold in others and supporting what’s already there is at the heart of everything Teresa does.

What Teresa talks about – acting from love, standing in community, taking small steps, and letting go of the outcome – shows up in every interview I did this season. These amazing people are proof that every person has the power to make a difference.
