So I've been doing hobby cakes for 6+ years, taught Wilton classes for awhile...and starting up a biz on the side has been on my mind for years. I've been talking with agencies about building a separate kitchen. The opportunity came up to take an Intro to Business class at a local college, so I enrolled and registered and completed my first class tonite!
I know a lot about the cake side, but not a whole lot of the business side and I don't want to go in blind. Well that's gonna change now! Our class project is a business plan, so I'm really excited to develop one to use for real life purposes!
Just had to share!
Good for you! Keep us posted on your progress......give all of us "dreamers" something to hope for!
Way to go! Bet that feels awesome!
Next classes accounting 101, macro and micro economics, and money and banking. With this knowledge, you can make more informed decisions and most of all, be better prepared when problems come along. With a few more accounting classes, you won't have to rely so heavily on an accountant.
I used my business plan for the marketing plan, the public relations plan, the project management plan, and on and on and on. Even though they were all group projects, it was easy enough to convince my team members to go with a bakery for the business.
Good for you! It is good to "know" both sides of things......
