Episode 86: A Badass Woman with A Purpose

Mary Crafts chats with us about making decisions out of love rather than fear. Mary Crafts built what would become the most renowned catering company in Utah. That multi-million dollar empire became the launching pad for so much more. Mary reminds us that it doesn’t matter how many people believe in us; we need to believe in ourselves. On Mary’s journey to Mount Kilimanjaro, she finally discovered what she was made of and that she was enough. The most significant lesson that Mary learned on her adventure up the mountain was that it does not matter what you’ve done in the past; what you do today is going to make a difference.

Plus, Mary speaks about how she overcame challenges in catering. Mary always opted for excellence, even if it meant the cost of profit. As long as Mary’s team was choosing excellence, she was okay. Her success came from being of service to others rather than straight profits. Therefore, people wanted to do business with her because they trusted her.
