Interview 1: Kirbay Preuss of Preuss Pets

Kirbay Preuss of Preuss Pets

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

— Mahatma Gandhi

It’s only fitting that the first interview should be with Kirbay Preuss of Preuss Pets. Preuss Pets is a pets store located in Old Town, Lansing, Michigan, right next door to my family’s company (Friedland Industries, Inc.). Kirbay and I have had many conversations over coffee/tea/wine about our experiences working in family-owned and operated businesses. They have become nationally known in their efforts to help educate people on healthy pet ownership, and their operation is at the highest standard.

In the interview, we cover everything from public perception to generating electricity from the electrical currents created by fish to her passion as a yoga instructor! Listen to the whole interview here:
