Megan Mottley, a mother, baker, and entrepreneur from Memphis, Tennessee, has recently debuted her line of Goodness Gracious Luxe Cookies frozen cookie dough at a grocery store in her hometown. The cookie dough, which is ready-to-bake, has no preservatives, and has the same taste as her delectable homemade, freshly-baked cookies!
Mottley has always loved baking since she was a teenager. So when her daughter asked her if she could go on a mission trip to Japan, she thought she could use her baking skills to raise some funds for her daughter’s trip. Thus, she started baking and selling cookies to her family and friends.
Her initial goal was to raise just $3,500 for her daughter’s trip, but her cookies became an instant hit and generated multiple repeat orders. Word spread fast and it also became viral on social media that in under 8 weeks, she and her daughter already raised $5,000.
