Q+A with Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream
U Village: What is the biggest surprise about being your own boss?
Molly: The stress you will always feel about making sure your people are financially secure.
U Village: What advice would you give someone who wants to start their own business?
Molly: First of all, spend time working for others so you know what it feels like! Then, do your homework! Take time to research and write the business plan. Be over prepared and over organized to open. Treat your people far better than your competitors. Pay for PR — it’s always worth it!
U Village: Cows go on strike, what’s your new business plan?
Molly: First of all, Milk is SO MY THING, that I’d really panic. Next, I’d probably figure out how to take my free, premium health care, team happiness meetings, and Paid Family Leave that I give to our human mooncrew and expand it to our Bovine workforce. That should get the milk flowing again, right?
