Life Event

Hello readers! I have some exciting news for you. After months of hard work and failed attempts I have finally landed my commercial kitchen. I am actually meeting with the town hall health inspector later today to go over my next steps. Every day I am one step closer to making my dreams a reality.

I typed up my proposal stapled my business card to it and started going door to door. OLD SCHOOL.  To my surprise I got a call back; they asked me to come in and pitch the idea, and I would get to take a peek at the kitchen and make sure it was up to my standards.

Please keep in mind that in the midst of it all I still have a fulltime and par time job. I came home late from an event. At 11:0pm the day before my big meeting, I started typing up my business plan. Talk about waiting until the last minute. But in my defense I’m a busy lady!

The day of the meeting I went to print two copies; one for the gentleman I would be meeting with and the other for myself in case he wanted to go over it (always be prepared).

About 95% of the document had printed, and the rest of the pages were blank. I ran out of ink… business admin 101 ink is expensive but always have a backup! I didn’t have enough time to run to the store, go home and print documents and then leave the house again, so I began gathering old ink cartridges hoping that I could salvage a few drops for my last few pages.  Of course, I got the job done!

The meeting was quite quick, but the kitchen was in better shape than I had imagined so that was a plus.

The gentleman didn’t ask to view my portfolio and we didn’t even go over my business plan, but I left it with him anyway. He said he would pitch the idea to the board members, and that he would be in touch.

One week later after a particularly trying day I got the best news! I IGOT MY KITCHEN!!!!  AND … he loved my business plan!

Hard work pays off kids; don’t give up.

Hello fellow bloggers. My name is Bailey, but you can call me Bae. I am a 22 year old college graduate, and an aspiring pastry chef. I have recently been released into the real, wild, culinary world, and I am slowly finding my way. In the midst of it all I plan on exploring restaurants, pursuing food photography, critiquing recipes as well as creating my own, as well as reading as many chef biographies as my free time allows. I think it is important to know about the chefs that have paved the way for us fellow culinarians. It also allows you to sound educated when conversing with others in the field. I am very excited to see where this adventure takes me; I hope you will come along for the ride!
