Owning and running a business with a sibling is both wonderful and challenging. In this post, we wanted to give our viewers some additional insight on the sisters behind Follow me Cheese.
Danielle and Casey are 10.5 years apart in age. This photo, taken by our friend Katelyn Eulau, captures us perfectly. Danielle is older and was born to be the boss. Casey is the baby of the family and is great at taking orders or quietly shrugging them off. Danielle, being a trained attorney, handles the legal, accounting, and sourcing/purchasing aspects of running a business; Casey excels at managing all social media and handling the daily routine of running the retail business. We both complement each other and drive each other crazy. We definitely have our disagreements which can easily turn into out and out fights (we are siblings, after all), but we generally make up quickly and grow from our experiences.
Sometimes we work so hard, that we find it hard to take time out for ourselves and just bond as sisters. We thank our fellow entrepreneur friend Katelyn for asking us to model for an experimental photography class she is taking. Follow me Cheese is Danielle and Casey's experiment. We always welcome a chat about business and life with our customers and enjoy getting to know all of you better. We hope you enjoy getting to know us.
Danielle Deak worked in gourmet restaurants throughout high school and college. She is an attorney, published author, and connoisseur of wine and specialty and artisan cheese.
