Here at Skimm HQ, sweet treats are our love language. And Baked by Melissa’s bite-size cupcakes always hit the spot.
As a woman that’s grown a biz into a nationwide phenomenon, we knew co-founder and CEO Melissa Ben-Ishay would have great advice about making the most of every day. So we asked her to join us for a very special episode of our “9 to 5ish” podcast, and a veryyy special ride in a Macan (hint: a car designed for people who maximize their time and find joy in the journey) courtesy of our friends at Porsche.
Hit play to see BTS and get more great tips from Melissa. As in, the ones we couldn’t fit in the pod. Including the thing she tries to do every morning and which flavor cupcake she loves most.
