“It can be both scary and exciting to take the next step in your business. Your business will not grow unless you pay attention to it. Focus on what it needs to get it to the next level. Let me help you get there. Rent my kitchen and use it as your own. You can even book some time with me to help with local supply chain, packaging and ingredient sourcing, financial supports, marketing and support ideas. Being a business owner is the most rewarding and challenging thing you will ever do.”
