“About five years ago while my family still lived in a Twin Cities suburb, I started putting things together for Beyond the Bar Bakery (a dream I had always had). Then, when we moved back to my hometown of Decorah, Iowa, everything finally fell into place and I got a storefront!

Running a small business involves so many things. From the initial set-up and figuring out what the business is going to look like, to figuring out what to sell and for how much—and then once open, all the things that go with day-to-day operations. Marketing the business, customer service, community relations—there are so many aspects.

I use what I learned at Mount Mercy every day.”
