Founder Spotlight: Margaret Wishingrad (Three Wishes)
Meet Margaret Wishingrad
Three Wishes is healthy cereal that tastes like childhood indulgence. While other cereals on the shelf force customers to choose between flavor and nutrition, there’s no compromise with Three Wishes. It is high protein, low sugar, gluten and grain-free.
Scarsdale, New York, USA
When did you launch the business?
What led you to where you are today?
My son, Ellis. As my first born, when he came into the world, I became incredibly picky about every single ingredient that I would feed my little one. When cereal was a recommendation for introductory finger foods I had my lightbulb moment. At the time, there was no clean, better-for-you cereal on the market that I was excited to feed my son and also consume myself. And Three Wishes was born!
What do you wish you knew before embarking on your entrepreneurial journey?
Honestly, nothing. When it comes to starting your own business, (a good amount of) ignorance is bliss. If I knew any more about the journey I was about to embark on, I think I’d be too afraid to take the leap. Instead, what I didn’t know couldn’t hurt me – my naivety enabled me to be brave, take things one step at a time, and feel empowered to keep going.
What is the most difficult decision you've had to make regarding your business so far?
Launching! When you spend two years creating a product, the most difficult part is deciding when to take the leap and launch. I could have allowed myself a hundred more rounds of taste-testing and design iterations, but at some point you have to decide you’re ready and jump in head first.
What can you help the VEGPRENEUR community with?
I love making connections! The plant-based community is a tightly knit community we love to serve.
