In this episode, you'll hear from Molly Fienning, CEO of Red Clay Hot Sauce, a modern, Southern hot sauce and hot honey company that brings a new kind of heat by putting flavor over fire. Molly dives right in and shares what it’s been like to run a food service company during the pandemic and survive all the changes. She shares the background story of how Red Clay hot sauce came to be with a date night and Molly’s industry experience with consumer packaged goods. You'll hear her three biggest learnings in that first part of building a business from the zero to seven figures of a company, and how to find the right people and create a support network when you’re in the baby stages of growing your business. Molly gives her advice on what to do when you want to quit and throw in the towel, or think about finding a new project or something else to work on, and how she has found ways to move past her biggest obstacles as an entrepreneur.
