(Mini) Q&A with Lola Snacks CEO Mary Molina: International Women’s Day
Happy International Women’s Day!
We wanted to spotlight the CEO of Lola Snacks Mary Molina, and have a (mini) Q&A on what it means to be a leader.
Interviewer: Why did you start Lola snacks?
Mary: “I started LOLA SNACKS as a way to feed my family. At the time we were struggling to put food on the table and were receiving assistance. My children have allergies and my husband was having some gut health issues and I needed a snack safe for my kids to eat, but nutritional and gut supportive.”
Interviewer: How does your snacks 'take the bs out of IBS'?
Mary: “LOLA SNACKS proprietary blend of prebiotics and probiotics nourish and rebalance your gut to reduce symptoms of IBS.”
Interviewer: What advice would you give to the next generation of female leaders?
Mary: “Never stop asking questions or challenging yourself. Stand up for what you believe in and...you can still be a good mom and have a 9-5, you just have to make it work for your family, don't worry about what other people are doing.”
Interviewer: How should women support other women in their organizations?
Mary: “Don't under estimate other women, help them rise to the top with kind words and good advice. Celebrate their wins no matter how small.”
