The Mixology Talk Podcast, Episode One Hundred Three
This week on the podcast, hear Max Messier’s story of reinvention, fortitude, and turning his scrappy notebook into a thriving business.
In today’s Episode…
I’m having a chat with Max Messier about his roundabout career that eventually brought him to founding his company, Cocktail & Sons.
Listen in to Learn:
- Why Max was NEVER going to become a bartender or get into the hospitality industry (and how well that worked out for him…)
- The skills that Max believes he learned as a bartender which were instrumental to his entrepreneurship journey
- Most importantly: his advice for bartenders considering starting their own business, but don’t know how to start
Stuff we Mentioned:
Check out Max’ Company, Cockail & Sons. They make all sorts of unusual and delicious syrups.
Thanks for Listening!
I hope you were as inspired by Max’ story as I was. Cheers!
