I’m sharing one of my dearest friends on the show.


Mary is a sister to me, a dear friend, a light, an inspiration, and so much more. We’ve gotten to know each other over the past two years and what a gift that has been. I wanted to share her story on the podcast because I know everyone will relate to her beautiful transformation from fear to love.

Mary Crafts is…quite simply…. a living legend. From humble beginnings and dire circumstances, she invested blood, sweat and countless tears into building what would become the most celebrated catering company in Utah.

That multi-million dollar empire became the launching pad for so much more. Today, Mary has handed the reins of her catering empire to her incredibly gifted children who have taken her company to the next level, while Mary turns her attention to helping others build their dreams.


In this conversation, Mary shares her story of a huge wake-up call at 50 years old, her journey of learning to face her fears, lose excess weight, transform her life, and even climb Mt. Kilimanjaro at the age of 65. Get ready for an amazing story – Mary is the example that anything is possible.

“What would I do today if I wasn’t afraid?”
