Taking a business from bootstrapped beginnings to multi-million dollar acquisition may seem like a dream, but it really happened to Julie Cole: mom of six, speaker, author and co-founder of Mabel’s Labels. In this episode Julie and I discuss the business’s trajectory from its humble start in her sister’s basement (then, a slightly bigger basement), through the major decisions the founders had to make in order to ensure its lasting success. Julie also shares honestly about the need for humility and flexibility in the entrepreneurial world, as well as what she’s loving about being a mom of a big family full of bigger kids.
