Q & A with Dré Slaman
DS: The dictionary defines adventure as “an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.” So that would be raising my daughter, Pierce, who is three years old. A close second is owning and operating my company, Farm to Fit. Both have been ventures into the great unknown, equally terrifying and thrilling, unpredictable and exhilarating, with as many joys as struggles. Although, the three-year-old tends to be more hazardous… luckily she’s cute!
