My guest today is the incredible Mignon François, a speaker, entrepreneur and community leader who has inspired thousands.
Mignon is the Founder and CEO of The Cupcake Collection. A multi-million dollar bakery brand she created from scratch. Since planting its roots in 2008, Mignon’s business savvy has earned her the titles of “Woman of Legend and Merit” by Tennessee State University, “Emerging Business Leader of the Year” and Black Enterprise Magazine “Family Business of the Year Award.”
In her new book, Made from Scratch: Finding Success Without a Recipe, Mignon shares her story of climbing out of a life of continuous upsets, struggle, and lack to building a legacy that would bless her and future generations.
I turned $5 into $60 that night and $60 into $600 by the end of the week. I’ve been flipping that money for 17 years.
I have been sitting in a home that doesn’t have regular electricity, and I have been sitting in a house where the water doesn’t turn on.
I was never afraid to fail. I was afraid to be successful.
It took for us to be at rock bottom for us to realize that there was nowhere else to go but up.
