First 4 Steps You Need To Take If You Want To Start A Small Baking Business

Ask yourself if you are truly ready to become a small business owner

These days; being an entrepreneur seems to be a normal alternative to seeking employment; it even seems to be a trending option, especially among the youth. I don’t think that it is a negative point; actually, I’m glad that people have found that there is an alternative to looking for a job and getting employed. It is also an option for anyone who is employed and may not be happy with their current situation – building your own business is an option you can choose, as opposed to staying employed. The one aspect that you should keep in mind though, is that it’s not the easiest thing to do, starting your own small baking business. Be realistic on what it entails to start a baking business that will grow and become successful. You will have a change of lifestyle; you have to work long hours, sometimes with minimal sleep. It can also be quite stressful and frustrating as well. It’s quite a long journey that will be filled with ups and downs; however, when executed properly – it can be a rewarding journey that is worthwhile.

Do the necessary research required and choose your niche as well

If you have asked yourself the necessary questions and you have found that you still want to start a small baking business; then the next step I would recommend is to research your baking business idea. Research all aspects of the business and requirements: What direction is the baking industry currently moving towards? What are the legal requirements? What niche options do you have? What baking skills are required and do you have them? What will be your focus? (type of products and target market) Where will you conduct business? Who are your competitors? Research and get as much information as you can on the baking industry in Kenya; this will help you have a realistic view of the industry and how you can get into the market and earn profit.

Write a business plan and come up with a financial budget

Whether you’re starting a home based baking business or a bakery shop; it’s very important to write a business plan for your small baking business. This will give you an overview of your business and it will also bring clarity to you on how you want your business to be set up, who you need and how much you will need to start and keep going. This will also give you a clear picture on the amount of money you need to start and work with in the business at least for 3 months. Please do not skip this part; as tedious as it may seem it’s better to write the plan and be prepared, than to get started without the information you require and have to close down your business six months later.

Write down your action plan on what you need to do

Once you already know your requirements and the amount of capital you require; then you need to make an action plan. This is simply a list of actions you need to take, duration of time, cost (if the action requires capital) and deadline to achieve or execute those actions. Be thorough with this list, even if one of the actions you need to improve or perfect your baking skills, write it down.

Mews and Nips: Cats Took Over the World Long Before the Internet

forest-cat


There’s no question that cats own the internet. But a fascinating new study of DNA of more than 200 ancient cats shows that cats’ quest for world domination began more than 10,000 years ago. The study reveals when and how wild cats made their way from the edges of civilization into our homes and hearts. An international team of researchers found that cats’ dispersal happened in two waves, first from the Fertile Crescent and later from Egypt, and their migration likely included voyages on Viking ships. For more on this study, read the full story in the Washington Post.


If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, we celebrated Father’s Day, on Monday, we told you about common feline eye problems, on Tuesday, we featured high-sided litter boxes, on Wednesday, we announced that casting for Season 9 of My Cat From Hell is now open, on Thursday, we introduced you to Magpie, a lightweight GPS tracking device, and on Friday, we reviewed Where’s Kitty? Dot-to-Dot.


Today’s video of little Tetley just made me smile I hope it does the same for you. (If you’re reading this via email, you may need to click through to our website to view the video. Not all email programs support embedded videos.)





Have a great weekend!

Magpie Lets You Know What Your Cat Is up to When You're Not Home

Magpie-GPS-tracker


This post is sponsored by Magpie*


Don’t we all wonder what our cats are up to when we’re not home? Sure, we know they’re probably snoozing most of the day after all cats sleep up to 18 hours a day. But what do they do in the other 6 hours?


Magpie, a small, lightweight GPS tracker that attaches to your cat’s collar, can keep your cat close to you even when you’re apart.


The creators of Magpie believe premium technology should be available to everyone. That’s why they’ve built a GPS tracker that’s not only smart and small, but also affordable. They just launched a Kickstarter campaign, and for a limited time, you can get one for your cat for only $5!


magpie-gps-tracker


How it works


This super lightweight device can be clipped or attached to anything your cat’s collar, your luggage, your bicycle. Once the Magpie is synched to your phone, you can find your cat (or the item you attached it to) anywhere. Magpie works in 185 countries around the world. If you have an indoor/outdoor cat, you can even set a safe zone, and Magpie will alert you when your cat has wandered outside that zone.


magpie-tracking-pet


Magpie’s features


Magpie’s battery is rechargeable and will run anywhere from 1 day to 3 months on a single charge, depending on the tracking frequency you’ve put in place. You can track by the minute, by the hour, or by the day.


Magpie is waterproof and strong and should hold up for even the most adventurous kitties out there.


magpie-hook-clip


Magpie is based on a subscription plan, with monthly service fees as low as $3.98 per month per unit.



Get Magpie for your cat for as little as $5 offer good through June 28

Dancing Thread


I don’t remember ever seeing one of these corn-silk-like worms before but the diminutive flickering of its dance caught my eye somehow. This creature appears to be close to 4 inches long and no thicker than a couple of millimetres. It seems likely it’s a Nematomorpha or what is commonly called a horsehair worm or Gordian worm. It looks fairly harmless but the larval form of this worm leads a bizarre parasitic life
