If you are looking for a palate cleanser for this week, I think I have just the thing. A new ax-throwing bar!
Just kidding: It’s a podcast episode where three incredibly smart, driven, and accomplished women talk about how they’ve overcome challenges of business to become BOSS entrepreneurs: the first episode of Start to Sale, a new show from the CEOs behind Coolhaus (ice creams and ice cream sandwiches) and Ovenly (cookies). Their guest is Christina Tosi, who seems almost superhuman in her intellect, her moral compass, her ability to get shit done. I bet she even remembers to text people on their birthdays. She goes into the nitty-gritty of fundraising and business-building in a way I’ve never heard nor seen in my decade of following her, so this is a unique listen for anyone who cares about what goes on behind the scenes of a major food brand.
Future episodes will include the founders of Zingerman’s, Refinery29, Witchsy, and more. Not just women. Not just food. Listen and subscribe here.
Not into podcasts? This weekend I plan on staying off Twitter, watching the Cristina Martinez episode of Chef’s Table, and baking my face off so I can eat pie for breakfast every day next week because I’m hungry and angry (and someone in my office has an advance copy of the Sister Pie cookbook).
Take care, enjoy the weekend, and if you like this newsletter, please forward it to a friend.
