Neal Gottlieb launched Three Twins Ice Cream in 2005, using his life savings and a loan from The Bank of Mom and Dad. Eventually, thanks to blind ambition and 90-hour work weeks, the California-based company’s inconceivably delicious organic ice cream is sold in nearly 4,000 locations across the United States and in Japan. Three Twins still has a booth at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market where they started. A contestant on Survivor: Kaôh Rōng, the 32nd season of the iconic reality competition, Neal will share his experience about making a business not just survive, but thrive.
