We had the good fortune of connecting with Molly Mundt and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Molly, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Tenacity and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get things done. At the beginning of my business – which started in 2009, during the recession – that could have meant anything from learning Quickbooks from scratch to cold calling stores. And let me say, there is nothing more anxiety-inducing than picking up the phone & calling a stranger & trying to convince them to buy your products. Obviously this changes as you become a larger business, but the mindset of “whatever it takes” is still at the foundation of our company and our brand. As we have grown, we have made sure that every person that joins our team has this same drive. There is no task too small or too menial.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
well if you are ever in san francisco, give me a call! i can take you on the best hike of your life &/or get you into a speakeasy.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My business partner Art Simon – the person i met (cough cough) years ago that has single handedly changed my life.
