Michelle MacDonald is the founder and CEO of Sweet Note Bakery. Michelle wanted to be an entrepreneur for as long as she could remember, but lacked the necessary confidence in herself. Then, several years after college, her passion for food was made stronger when her family was struggling with food allergies, Michelle knew she could make a difference. She started Sweet Note in 2012 on the entrepreneurial dream to live her passion and inspire other women to follow theirs through the process. Today Sweet Note, is growing to be a leader with integrity in the “free-from” food industry that inspires changes and is a source of empowerment to other women. They specialize in a line of gluten-free and top 8 allergen-free bagels that provide a NY-style taste and texture. In addition to running Sweet Note, Michelle is an Entrepreneur.com contributor, active mentor, public speaker and recently created a group for other women in food called the Women Food Entrepreneur Group.
