Now, because she won’t do it for herself, we’ll have to do all the bragging for her. Freya Estreller, co founder of COOLHAUS and Ludlows Cocktails is, to put it lightly, a badass.

Through a podcast done by Mark Shapiro (Thanks Mark!), we get all the deets from Freya about how she launched her company and managed to make it into one of the best artisanal ice cream shops, trucks, and distributor. She also gives great insight with what goes wrong or right, and how to empower yourself along with your business. Not only is this a great story to hear, but also a great way to start a business of your own, because clearly, she’s doing something right.
