A gal with Texas-sized gumption (and hair), Courtney Ray Goodson is the founder and owner of Uncle Ray’s Peanut Brittle. Her company offers a line of gourmet brittle with a clean ingredient list. It’s gluten-free, contains no high-fructose corn syrup and is made in small batches, with vegan options on the way! It all got started in a sweet way, over coffee, peanut brittle and charming talks about life with her Great Uncle Ray. After serving as a Peace Corps volunteer from 2009 to 2011, Goodson was inspired by how much her village went bonkers over brittle. Using her Uncle Ray’s recipe as inspiration, the day she created her bacon pecan brittle was the day she decided to start her business. To some, bootstrapping a business all on your own could be the fight of your life, but she’ll say it was the fight for her life. Her business has been her anchor and opportunity to live in a world she’s proud to have created!
