Inspite of my busy schedule I try to read at least 2 new books in a month. I started this when i heard that millionaires read at least 30 books in a year. Usually I like to read historical romance’s but since i have started by business journey i only read business or self-help books that will help me improve my business and teach me how to manage my money.
I promised myself that once I hit my income goal, I will treat myself to a holiday and a trashy romance novel.
As you know I have launched my Pricing your cakes right to build a profitable cake Business Course. I put my heart and soul in this course and in the launch. I got a lot of interest for it, but was disappointed in responses when it came to payment.
It is just perplexing to me that here is a solution to most bakers problems and yet they are not taking action.
Anyway, this past week I have been reading ‘Secrets of the Millionaire Mind’ by T. Harv Eker. While reading this book it brought about some home truths to me.
In this Course I have just launched I have prepared an answer to most bakers and cake business owners problems. And it just amazes me when people just pass it by. A few years ago if I had come across a course like this I would have jumped at the chance, no matter how much it costs.
We need to realize that ”if you continue to keep on what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got”- Jim Rohn
That is why I created this course, my goal is for you to learn more so that you can have a better business. When you learn something new, you have a new way of thinking, new actions, and therefore new results.
That is why it is very important that you continue to learn and grow.
An author once said ‘ the learners will inherit the earth while the learned will be beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exist’- Eric Hoffer
In essence this means that if you don’t create the habit of learning on a regular, you will be left behind.
I cannot think of the numerous courses, seminars, books and training’s that I have done. I have spent thousands and thousands of Naira on them. It is not like if I have millions of naira in my account yet, or that I’m waiting till I’m a multimillionaire before I pay for these courses, But I never see it a cost, but rather as an investment. I know that even if I learn just one thing that will make my business improve, then I know it is worth it.
If you are in business and you are doing the same thing and not making money, then sorry to say you are doing something wrong and maybe it’s time you try something new.
We all know the definition of insanity which is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
In the Eker book he said ‘some people claim they can’t afford to get educated due to lack of time and money. On the other hand, rich people relate to a quote by Benjamin Franklin, which says that ”if you think education is expensive, try ignorance’’.
And I find this very true. When I launch a course, I find it curious that it is usually the people who are struggling or are broke that say; ‘ I don’t have money or ‘ I don’t need this course or I don’t have the time. While it is those who are actually making a headway in their business or those who are serious and determined to be a success that will find the money to pay for courses., because they know that if they can learn something that they can use to improve there business, it is all worth it in the long run.
Mr Eker also said ”if you don’t have time to do the things you want to do or need to do, you’re most probably a modern slave. And if you don’t have the money to learn how to be successful, you probably need it more than anyone’’.
If you come across an opportunity for someone to teach you how to run a profitable cake business and you are saying I don’t have money. What is going to be different in 1, 2 or 5 years down the line? I am going to tell you this for free, the answer is nothing. You’ll be saying the same thing at that time.
This is by no means a curse; you have got to know that for you to make money you have to LEARN how to make money for your business. You have to learn how to market, price, selling and brand your products right. You need to learn the skills, strategies and methods on how to have a money making cake business.
As cake business coach it is my passion, my goal to train and teach and show you how to have a profitable cake business, so you can move from whatever level you are on now to the ultimate level.
This past week I got booked to make a cake for over N100k. And it is not a wedding cake. As I said before, I have scaled down by business to concentrate on Cake business Owners Club so I tend to only get about 3-5 orders a month. This gives me time for my coaching business and courses and before I take an order it has to be worthwhile. I no more take orders for less than N30k unless it is for family or close friends.
How was I able to structure my business in this way. It was by investing my time, money and energy in learning how to do this.
Success is a learnable skill. You can learn to succeed at anything. Your cake business can be a success.
So if you find someone or something that can teach you, you should grab such opportunity with both hands.
The more you learn, the more you earn… and you can take that to the bank’ – T. Eker
