I know what it is like to have a business that you are passionate about, to work each day for yourself and I know just how rewarding that is. I also know how many cake decorators I have seen try and fail, not because they didn’t have the creative eye, or finely honed decorating skills.
Your friends and family may be saying to you, “Wow, you make awesome cakes! You should start a business!” I know, its how I started! And I have also seen students come through my classes desperate to start a business that will give them more flexibility in their lives, a chance to work at home and a creative outlet.
If you want to start a successful cake business that actually pays the bills, you are going to have to use that annoying left side of your brain. Now I know we have heard the classic scenario of the struggling artist and as creative people we love living in the right side of our brain but that is just not going to pay the bills. And the business that you love can soon become a job that you are working at for a few dollars an hour.
The cake decorating industry has gone through some huge changes and massive growth in the past 10 years.
Regulations have become stricter and competition has become fierce and it has become increasingly more and more difficult for home based businesses to meet the requirements and actually make profit.
I have pulled together every ounce of experience that I have had running a cake business and with all the little secret nuggets of information that I have been privy to over the years, including all the lessons that I learnt the hard way (so you don’t have to).
Start Your Cake Business shares all of my experiences and processes, including marketing and business strategies, to help you create a career from a passion.
I have put together a 4 week course where you will work through 8 video modules, and the most comprehensive workbook that you could ever imagine. Giving you every resource that you could need in getting your cake business from pipe dream, to profitable career. You will also be able to join our exclusive Facebook group for SYCB course attendees only!
In a class I used to run with two other decorators about business basics, I noticed that there were two types of people who wanted to run a decorating business.
There were those who wanted a business. A real business that could raise a family and pay the mortgage and then there were those who loved making cakes but just wanted to have what I call a “profitable hobby”. After all a hobby is even more fun when it doesn’t cost you anything to enjoy and perhaps even puts some extra money in your pocket.
This course is however far more than a checklist of things you need to do to start your business. (Although you are going to get that too)
This is a course that will take you on a journey, address your fears and motivations so you have a clear picture of what you want your business to be.
It will equip you with the skills needed to run not just to sell cakes but to run a successful, profitable business. The information I am going to give you will help you no matter where you are in the world and even if you run a completely different business!!
