The year is 1960. A young Barnard college student starts fashion modeling for Chanel in order to pay her college dues but it didn’t last long after her graduation. She got married the next year and were still in the process of discovering the right career move for herself. Finding no other avenue, she took up a job as a stockbroker; something her father in law did for a living. She soon found out that too wasn’t her vocation. Knowing that she had to keep trying, she started a small-scale catering business in the basement of her house after partnering with an old friend. In the beginning, the business was a massive hit but soon because of differences in opinions among other factors, it had to be sold and the shares split.

You would expect a normal person to give up or at least take a break at this time, after failing at multiple endeavors, but Marth Stewart was no normal person. She took on a job as the manager of a gourmet food store next, only to get fired because of disagreements with the owner. You might find it hard to believe but this wasn’t her breaking point either; she went on to open a food store of her own. Fortunately for her cause, her husband, who was now the owner of a famous publishing house, released a book that ended up on The New York Times Best Seller List. He asked her to cater for the launch party of the said book and this is where she met Alan Mirken, head of Crown Publishing Group at the time. Mirken was so impressed with her culinary and managerial abilities that he asked her to develop a cookbook for him that would contain recipes and pictures.

This is how she ended up releasing her first book, “Entertaining” which was a huge success across the country (and the world). She soon began writing books and newspaper columns by the dozens and also made guest appearances on shows like The Oprah Winfrey Show and Larry King Live. It was all uphill for her from there on and the girl who once didn’t even know what career she should take on, today ranks as one of the best chefs and television personalities in the U.S. Yes indeed, we are talking about Martha Stewart.

After gaining success across multiple business ventures, after authoring several bestselling books, after concocting some of the most decadent and sophisticated recipes known to man and after hosting two blockbuster television shows, she decided to launch a meal delivery service.
