Friday September 23rd at Noon EST: David Klein, Founder of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, Joins Host Donna Amos to Share His Adventures and Lessons Learned in Life and Business

David Klein, founder of Jelly Belly jelly beans, is featured in a new documentary titled Candyman. Candyman tells the amazing true story of Klein, an eccentric candy inventor from LA, who in 1976 had a once-in-a-lifetime epiphany and came up with the concept of Jelly Belly jelly beans. These colorful beans came in numerous shockingly realistic flavors and were a radical new product. They became a pop culture phenomenon and revolutionized the candy industry. It didn't hurt that President Ronald Reagan proclaimed Jelly Bellies as his favorite sweets.

David's eccentric personality and peculiar sense of business led him to give up the business just as it was about to explode. He has struggled with regrets ever since.

A positive, inspiring individual, David has learned many lessons in life and business through this process. This is a discussion you won’t want to miss!
