When you’re told what success looks like from a young age (good grades, college, 30-40+ hours a week at a good paying job) it’s easy to feel like you know your next step. Well, that was a lifestyle that Mignon Francois was not ready to settle into when she decided to “bake sale” her way to breaking the cycle. As stay-at-home mother of 6+1 with no prior baking experience (not even out of a box) trying to make ends meet, she knew she was destined for more than just the daily grind. Starting her baking journey with a dorm refrigerator and Kitchenaid mixer in her living room, she knew the only way to go was up. Not being able to see the well laid plan before her, she credits her faith and spirituality in allowing her to always look for the lesson when her path forward seemed unsure. Leaving a legacy for future generations is no small feat, but with her passion for success Mignon knows exactly who she is and what she will be leaving for her children and grandchildren. She shares with Jeanne her 3 ingredient “recipe” for a so-called overnight success, why starting a business is like nurturing a child, why we aren’t afraid of failure but rather afraid of success, how we can find purpose in our brokenness, and the importance of connecting with younger generations.

About Mignon:

Mignon François is a speaker, entrepreneur, and community leader who has inspired thousands through her "Follow Your Spirit" approach. After years of drowning in debt and brokenness, Mignon founded The Cupcake Collection in 2008, on the last $5 she had to feed her family and turned it into a legacy with over 5 million cupcakes sold. Her grassroots story of success has garnered national attention from TODAY with Hoda and Jenna, Southern Living, Entrepreneur and Business Insider just to name a few. In addition, her business savvy has earned her numerous titles and awards, including Woman of Legend and Merit, Entrepreneur of the Year, Women's Empowerment Innovator, NAACP Powershift Entrepreneur, and Black Enterprise magazine's Family Business of the Year. Today Mignon is committed to teaching anyone who will listen about what they can do if only they believe. 2023 forges a new path for Mignon's career as she adds author to her resume. In her highly anticipated memoir, "Made from Scratch: Finding Success Without a Recipe," Mignon shares her story of finding success with no presets in place, mapping a journey that led to the joy that has become synonymous with Mignon François.
