Major hustle | A Couple Cooks Podcast Episode 53

“‘If the front door is closed, climb in through the window.’ That’s my life motto. You don’t stop when someone says no. You don’t stop when there’s a bump in the road. You just have to keep going through it. It’s tenacity, grit, and perseverance that gets you to the other side of tough times and to your goal.” Ellen Bennett of Hedley & Bennett lives that inside and out. In just five years, she’s built a multi-million dollar apron company from the ground up. She now sells to 6,000 restaurants all over the world, and counts Martha Stewart and Mario Batali as customers. Hear about her Mexican roots that led her to Mexico City for culinary school, and how she’s propelled herself to the top of her game by age 30. This lady’s got major hustle, and her positive, no-nonsense approach will have takeaways for your kitchen and life.
