In this transcript, Chef Remmi ("teen-preneur") discusses with Clay Clark (US SBA Entrepreneur of the Year) what it means to turn your to be a "teen-preneur" on Thrive15.com, one of the most helpful business schools in Florida! 

Clay Clark:    My name is Clay Clark, and today I have the pleasure of being joined with a 14-year-old superstar chef, Chef Remmi. This girl has been able to turn her dreams into reality at the age of 14. What?! At the age of 14! Today she's going to be teaching us specifically about how we can take those passions and turn it into a profitable business. 

Clay Clark:    Remmi, thank you for being here today, my friend.

Chef Remmi:    Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Clay Clark:    You are a superstar. I get nervous when I'm around you. I get nervous and I just have to just push through the nervousness. Okay, so here we go. We're talking today take about turning your passion into profits. Everybody watching this, we all have a passion. Somebody watching this is passionate about carving duck. Somebody else is passionate about working out or volleyball or computers, but you've been able to turn your passion into profits. 

Chef Remmi:    Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Clay Clark:    I know a lot of entrepreneurs who are passionate about things and they basically make enough profits so they can pursue their passion and other people who merge their passion and their profit center into one thing. I would like to ask you this, because you have successfully turned your passion into profits. What are you most passionate about today?

Chef Remmi:    I mean, cooking has always been my passion …

Clay Clark:    Yeah. 

Chef Remmi:    … but, once I started my business I think that really has been part of my passion, I mean, just business in general. 

Clay Clark:    Okay, so business is something you're into?

Chef Remmi:    Yeah. 

Clay Clark:    Now, when did you discover that you that you had a supernatural, above-normal passion for cooking? 

Chef Remmi:    I think my mom really discovered that and she's the one who helped to grow and develop that passion into cooking.

Clay Clark:    Yeah.

Chef Remmi:    Once she kept teaching me different cooking techniques, I really just loved learning about food. Basically, whenever you cook it's like you're experimenting. I mean, it's like I get to be a scientist, except I don't like science that much, but I get to be a scientist in the kitchen. You can experiment with different foods. You get to try new foods; it's fun. 

Clay Clark:    If you ever drink one of one of these smoothies that I make, you'll feel like you're drinking a science experiment. It's a little dangerous. It's pretty bad. Okay, now you started Cook Time with Remmi, at age 10.

Chef Remmi:    Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Clay Clark:    Can you explain to me what Cook Time With Remmi is and how you got started? 

Chef Remmi:    Cook Time With Remmi is a health-based cooking show for kids, by a kid. Initially it was a web show and then later it turned into a TV show and now it's a full-grown, oh, not full-grown, but sort of full-grown business.

Clay Clark:    Yeah

Chef Remmi:    Basically, what I do is I try to teach kids how to eat healthier by cooking healthier, by giving easy recipes that kids can make and that are economically good on your wallet and basically that are healthy.

Clay Clark:    Now, real quick because I don't want to miss this here. You have this super duper product that is in Whole Foods right now. This thing is in Whole Foods. You can go to Whole Foods and buy this stuff?

Chef Remmi:    Mm-hmm (affirmative). Yes.

Clay Clark:    This is the Italian dressing?

Chef Remmi:    Yes, it's Italian salad dressing. 

Clay Clark:    You can buy this in Whole Foods, and then you have a book, a cookbook. What's the name of your cookbook?

Chef Remmi:    My cookbook is Global Cooking For Kids.

Clay Clark:    You can buy that online; you can go pick up that book. You're sponsored by Sodexo. That's the big catering company. There's 4,000 schools all across the country.

Chef Remmi:    Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Clay Clark:    Right? You're the sponsor. What's your title with those guys?

Chef Remmi:    I am the Student Ambassador for Health and Nutrition. 

Clay Clark:    It's seems like you're getting flown out now to speak at Google. Google's asked you to come speak. What are you doing out there with the folks at Google?

Chef Remmi:    I'm part of a network, the Teen Entrepreneur Network, so its full of teen entrepreneurs. What we're doing is we're going to do a Google hangout where basically, we're going to talk about being an entrepreneur at our age and just how younger people can be entrepreneurs too.

Clay Clark:    Let's go back a level. We're gonna take it back, old school. Here we go, old school, going back. At what point did you start filming for the first time? Because you have this idea … are you and your mom ... because at my house as a kid I'd probably be eating cereal. I remember every waking hour of my pre-15 life, I just ate cereal. That's all I would do, eat cereal, so I'm eating cereal, and did your mom say, or did you say, "Hey, I want to make a TV show," or where did that idea come from? 

Chef Remmi:    Actually the idea came from when I was probably 8 years old, around that age. I was able to make full meals by then, so my brother suggested we just do a little web show because there's not that many kids out there that like to cook and like to cook healthy. 

Clay Clark:    Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Chef Remmi:    Initially it was just supposed to be just an online show and then about … once we got two episodes.

Clay Clark:    Did you hire a dude to shoot this video? Did your brother shoot the video? Who's shooting the video?

Chef Remmi:    We hired this, "dude" I should say …

Clay Clark:    "Dude".

Chef Remmi:    … and we shot it in our house, so it was a very low budget thing.

Clay Clark:    You and your mom, did you use Google or did you use Yahoo? No, you used Google. You Googled and then you found a guy, a dude, who came in and filmed?

Chef Remmi:    Yes.

Clay Clark:    Was it pretty bad, I mean, looking back at it, was it pretty rough? 

Chef Remmi:    I remember whenever we were doing it, there was a lot of laughs because I was an interesting child.

Clay Clark:    Okay.

Chef Remmi:    I still am, but still. 

Clay Clark:    You put two of those up on your website, right?

Chef Remmi:    Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Clay Clark:    Your website domain name again is ...?

Chef Remmi:    Cooktimewithremmi.com.
