Favorite Flavor? Rum N' Cookie
What’s your favorite part about working at Spoonable Spirits? "Working with a small team and being able to experience multiple facets of running a small business."
Most memorable moment? "Getting rained out at the Bronx Night Market (think torrential rain, hail, and hurricane-like gusts of wind), leaving, and then coming back. We did surprisingly well!
What would you tell future interns? "A small business is exactly what it sounds like... a small business. There will always seem to be scarcity in: time, manpower, and other resources, whatever they may be- and that's okay. Be flexible and adapt to exhaustive situations- there are going to be many. Seek ways to generate value as if you were running the business yourself (finding new partners to work with, increasing operational efficiency, etc.). One of the biggest advantages of being a part of a business this size is that ideas can move up and down the chain of command very freely- don't be afraid to speak up and input your ideas. Lastly, there's a big sales component to this internship- don't forget to smile :)."
