So, I’ve been looking over my Christmas List for 2012, and I have to say I’m disappointed that I was not able to do a lot of the things on the list. I mean, a few I have made steps towards in getting started, and just need to follow up, but just haven’t finished. Others I’ve found were simply unnecessary in the long run.
I’ve decided then, to go over my list, and kind of review. Get myself refocused and squared away for the coming months.
A few things that I deemed unnecessary were the photo journal and new website. These, if I remember right, were going to be separate and apart from the WordPress site, which would not make much sense. It would mean more work to update and keep up with the extra websites. It would be simpler for me to create new pages for this already existing website.
The trade shows would be near impossible for me to do at the moment, seeing as how (a) we don’t have food trade shows here where I live, and (b) I wouldn’t be able to get the time off from my job to go to one elsewhere. Unless I used my vacation… There’s a thought.
Some things seem to be better left alone until I am more well situated to be able to sustain them. A shop space would be one of them. Ideal spaces are usually off the beaten track, or else they are very out of my present budget. T.T So that will have to wait. This means that I will also have to (for the time being) postpone buying ingredients in bulk.
With my current work load and studies under way, it may be a bit difficult to cater to parties and other such events. I guess I will have to base my decision on a case by case basis rather that to outright refuse.
I have been able to approach a few shops about carrying my cookies, now I have to show a price list and send out samples to each one. *Crosses fingers* I hope it goes well. I’ve also done a giveaway on the Mimosa Cafe Facebook page, and it was pretty well received I think. I just need to make it an event on Facebook rather than just a regular post for it to be more effective.
Finally, the Mimosa Cafe tea party is already planned out. I just have to get the menu and venue solidified and then I’m ready to go. I’m going to have that as an event on Facebook as well so I can track attendance.
I think that’s everything for this post. Till next time, take care.
