Mompreneur Before It Was Cool
Before there were tele-calls to learn how to monetize your business, before there was Etsy, before there was a Working Mother magazine list of family friendly companies- there was Margaret Rudnick.
Who, you say? I’m glad you asked. Margaret was the founder of Pepperidge Farms. Yes, the one with the cookies that must be eaten one bag at a time.
She began her career as a baker out of necessity. Her son had many different allergies, and no matter what bread she tried for him, he still had reactions. So she created her own version, omitting ingredients she thought may be creating the problem. And he was better.
