Yes, this may seem like an unusual heading, but I’m sure you have asked yourself if this is worth it.
I have been in this business for a number of years and i have had fails and wins.
When i started the Cake Business Owners Club, i was going in very unknown territory. Teaching bakers online about making their cake businesses better. There were a lot of things i had to learn and I’m still learning.
Sometimes the fear of the unknown stops us from taking the next step. I never really saw myself as a teacher. I just wanted to bake and that was it, but nowadays it is like if God is gravitating me to teach.
As you know teaching is not a relaxing job, you are constantly learning, thinking of new content, writing, researching, using media to get the word out, preparing new courses, buying books, spending money on training to improve one self, that baking has taken a back seat.
I ask myself is it worth it, especially when If you are not earning the money as expected.
When bills come and I’m thinking of how I can pay and i see the successes of other online teachers (not necessary doing what I do), I can get depressed and almost feel like giving up.
But God always has a way, whenever I start to feel like that, I suddenly get a message from someone i helped thanking me for helping them with their business. that they have been looking for someone like me or maybe i will get a subscriber for one of my courses.
This just lifts my spirits and gives me the motivation to continue.
We all make comparisons, but I know those that are recording successes all started from somewhere. They did not make 6-7 figures in one night. It took a lot of hard work. So when I read about people successes, i don’t get jealous, I study them and find out what strategy they used, so I can learn from it and perhaps use it for my business.
Deep down, I know this is what God wants me to do. I enjoy what i do and i make money from it. I get the chance to work from home and spend time with my children.
So has it been worth it?
All the money spent on training, all the late nights, not having constant income.Sometimes it may not seem like it, but i can say Yes, it has been worth it.
So my dear baker, even though you are not yet making money in your cake business, please do not give up. Keep at it. And don’t stop learning.
You might say where will i get money to pay for a course in Cake Marketing, or pricing and so on. Or you might say i will go online to learn. yes, you can do that and read about over million articles on a single topic.
But if you find someone who can break it down, give you a step to step guided solution to your problem. My dear, shouldn’t you grab such opportunity with both hands.
I do and look at me now, I am on my way to living my dream.
In some days i will be launching my Pricing Course which we include videos on why you are struggling with Pricing, Simple Techniques on how to price your cakes and How to get customers to accept the price you give them for your cakes.
