Believing in & living out your authentic self — with Brittany Baum
“When I was a kid drawing, I may have started with an idea, but I was always interested to see how it would evolve. It’s kind of how I feel about this business. I don’t want it to be this monotonous, boring thing.”
BRITTANY BAUM, founder/owner of Brēzel
Our interview with Brittany is peppered with laughter and revelations, and words like “weird” and “crazy” and of course, “pretzels” — but don't let that fool you. Her commitment to discovering and developing her craft is a serious one. Leaning on her unique food experience in Germany, she’s checked the box on corporate and government work life, transitioned to DIY experiences and farmers markets, and experienced a major learning curve while working odd jobs to make ends meet. Brittany drops plenty of inspiration and wisdom on the road to becoming a successful entrepreneur. She also wears her inspiration on her sleeve (literally) and possesses enough spunk and can-do attitude to make the most outrageous challenge seem achievable. After all, we are talking about pretzels.
