048: Fail Miserably or Not at All with Robyn Sue Fisher of Smitten Ice Cream

We all know the dread of showing up for a job we hate. Pulling into a dimly lit parking lot, wishing we could turn around, and sitting in our cars a fewww extra minutes to avoid walking into that golden prison.

For this week’s guest, Robyn Sue Fisher of Smitten Ice Cream, the idea of being stuck and settled was something she could no longer live with. Instead, she made a vow to herself to make this whole “adulting” thing fun.

But how did she go from one small vow to inventing the first single-serve ice cream machine that runs on liquid nitrogen, and expanding from a one-woman wagon cart to a business owner with 10 stores across California?  Tune into this week’s interview to find out!
