It has been a whole month since I opened my on-line bake shop and it truly feels as though so much has changed.
I have way less sleep under my belt for instance and my kitchen smells like pastry all the time, which is actually fantastic.
A new business, I have discovered has lots of growing pains but the highlights far exceed the difficult moments.
When my website first launched I started to send out e-mails to local businesses because frankly, I had no idea what I was doing. How do you get in touch with people who you want to sell things to? Especially without sounding like you are just a lowly salesperson. It's more difficult than ever in this electronic age to make face contact with those you need to step into success. So, I sent out a simple message to as many places as I could that fit my food morals. Only one responded and that was Bard Coffee in Portland. My e-mail happened to coincide with the soon to be vacant spot they had for a baker.
