Irene Gonzalez opened Molino's Coffee in downtown Riverside a little over a year ago. After staying home to be a mom for eighteen years, she took the leap and started something that she could own.
When you're stuck in a job that you don't like, or you've been doing the same thing for years it's easy to start believing that this is the way things will be forever. But Irene's story proves otherwise. She closed one chapter of her life and started a new one. Her message is that it's never too late to change direction, to start something new, to take a chance and do something that you love.
Check out Molino's Coffee as you're enjoying the Christmas lights this season at The Mission Inn and downtown Riverside. Pop in and say hello to Irene.
