I’m a small-town Iowa girl who thought she wanted to be a high school teacher. After 3 years instructing on all things Shakespeare and American authors, life called me out of the classroom and into the role of stay-at-home mom.

I’m Molly!

Hey, there! 

So after helping one business owner set up his company on the new Facebook Business Pages and running some successful campaigns, another local owner reached out asking for social media help, then another and another, and in 2017 Molly Knuth Media was born.

You see, being a stay-at-home mom was great, but I knew that I needed a little more. And I knew there were lots of small-town business owners in my hometown of Cascade, Iowa, who could use some assistance in their daily operations. 

…And that’s when things got interesting.

I am a mom of four.

I worked at Applebee’s as a hostess, server, and bartender in college

My favorite drink is Advocare Spark Fruit Punch

I swore I’d never marry a farmer…and my farmer husband never lets me live that down.

My dream is to have a storefront in a historic building on Main Street Cascade.

My favorite movies are Titanic and Step Brothers.

My favorite writing utensil is the Pentel Energel .3 Needle Tip pen.

I am an Enneagram 3 through and through.
