📣 Own Your Worth Speaker Spotlight: 💥Mara Smith💥is a former powerhouse attorney turned entrepreneur, and the founder of Inspiro Tequila. She is a "learn-it-all" and not a "know-it-all" as she’s constantly excited to learn more every day through her entrepreneurial journey. This constant learning, innovating and evaluating makes Mara unique.
Mara Smith is a former attorney, corporate strategist and stay-at-home mom who is the founder of Inspiro Tequila. After studying accounting in undergrad and then attending Northwestern University School of Law, Mara began her legal career at a large law firm in Chicago. She then decided to switch gears and apply her business degree as part of the corporate strategy and business development team at a Fortune 500 Company.
Mara started drinking tequila when she was looking for a clean, gluten-free spirit that fit into her active lifestyle. She searched for a tequila brand that was additive-free with a look, taste and aroma that appealed to her as the consumer. That perfect tequila did not exist, so she decided to create one. The goal was not just to create a one-of-a-kind tequila, it was also to bring another female voice to the spirits industry. Women are involved in every aspect of Inspiro Tequila’s process from creating the taste profiles to getting bottles on the shelves.
Mara was put on emergency bedrest while pregnant with her twins and when they were born prematurely, Mara decided to leave the corporate world to focus on her family and charitable work. She never stopped thinking about what was next. Mara always envisioned running her own company and in February of 2020 she set out on her journey to create her new tequila brand. As a female founder, Mara’s mission is to inspire and support other women on their entrepreneurial journeys through financial support and mentoring.
