In this episode, we connect with Molly Hartley, co-owner of Scratch Bakeshop in Rochester, New York. A true self-starter, Molly reflects on her journey to opening her own business, including how she turned her passion into a career. We talk about how she takes care of herself not only as a business owner but as a mother, the importance of pouring love into your work, and she gives us some tools and suggestions for processing stress.

Molly shares how a consistent gratitude practice fits into her self-care routine, the beauty of being vulnerable within the business space, the advice she would give to anyone just starting out, and the importance of taking time to “just be.”

    Molly, loved listening to this pod cast! You are such a breath of fresh air. Our family is so proud of you. You had a dream and you went for it. You get one life, live it right and that’s all you need. You are so young and have accomplished so much. Yes, take time to be in the moment, look at your great accomplishments ( business, baby, house) and think life is good! ~ cousin Shelly ?
