This post is part of a series of branded posts sponsored by BlueJeans. The focus of the series — part of a paid partnership between BlueJeans and CircleAround — is on women business owners and how they are navigating the complexities and challenges of contemporary business, from the pandemic to the economy, with a particular eye on connectivity. BlueJeans is the official video conferencing partner of CircleAround.

Pat Bennett started her granola business at an age when most people are counting down the years until they retire. But Bennett knew one of the only ways to help her friends and family enjoy healthy snack foods was to create them herself. Today, Pat's Granola is shipped nationwide and can be found in a variety of brick-and-mortar stores in the Northeast Ohio area. We caught up with Bennett to learn more about her journey and her advice on starting a business, at any age.
