Mary Crafts: Recreate Your Life
Pivoting in a Recession and Why All the Answers are Inside You
It is never too late to recreate your life and seize a new opportunity no matter your circumstance or the challenges you face.
As we look to the New Year with the Coronavirus Pandemic still raging amid economic turmoil, it is forcing many people to rethink their lives and find fresh ways to live into their truth and create businesses and side hustles in alignment with their purpose.
Today I am resharing this episode because we can all learn much in these challenging times from Mary Crafts. Some 35 years ago, Mary was a single mom on welfare with only $150 to her name and a passion for bringing people together around great food.
Toddlers in tow in a little red wagon, Mary began in her neighborhood and grew her enterprise into the multi-million-dollar Culinary Crafts, Utah’s largest off-premise catering company. Today she shares her journey, including selling the business to her kids at age 65 – and embarking on a journey of reinvention with a new business, a podcast and an upcoming book called “Crafting a Meaningful Life.”
- Why integrity is everything in business and how to stay in alignment with your truth along the way
- Why all the answers within you, and you progress faster with more success when you can quiet yourself and turn inside for inspiration
