How to Strategize as a Food Service Entrepreneur

Hey Hey!

As some of you may know, I am preparing for Year 4 of The Stand, my mobile food cart business.

It hasn’t been the easiest for years either.

Let me give you a quick recap.

Year 1: I spent all my tax money on my mobile food cart. I got fired 2 weeks later from my job and ended up making $10,000 in less than 90 days. I thought hit the jack pot. I made my money back and then some.

Year 2: I got a job to sustain me through the winter months. My plan was to work both. The Stand and run my program at the community center. That did not go according to plan. I went out a few times, but all my time and effort went to developing and running the program. The money was good, for the most part and I was content. I did not have to hustle as hard. I enjoyed that but I did miss The Stand and the community missed me.

Year 3: I quit my job. I loved it, but I felt very much so used (in the words of my little sister lol). After applying for the manager position and being told that I could not get it because they didn’t know what I was managing after I developed and ran the whole program for a year I was confused and I quit. I quit November 2019 and was planning to have  my most lucrative year with The Stand yet, starting May 2020. However, March 2020 Corona hit. Crazy right? If I would have stayed at my job a little longer I would have been able to collect unemployment smh lol.

Anyway, my plans changed. My plan was to go out at least 5 times a day starting May. With Corona in the community I wasn’t comfortable going out every day. I needed more information.

How to guarantee SUCCESS in your service based business!

I have been putting a lot of thought into this lately. I see a lot of people who portray that they are in business. However, what I find is that being in business is about more than having and selling a product or service.

Yes I said what I said.

Having a service that sells and or being able to sell any product are both great qualities and are crucial in business but it is not everything you need.

And if you have a product that sells but don’t have other parts of your business in order, you WILL fail.

In today’s article I am sharing with you , I have found to be key factors in having a successful service based business. I am speaking as a consumer and a business owner.

Lets get into it

3 Ways to Pay Off Your Credit Cards

I don’t know about you but I hate debt.

It gives me anxiety.

I don’t like owing people.

I got my first credit card when I was 18.

My mom tried to warn me, but I didn’t listen.

At 18 I got every card I could think of and I maxed each one out.

I have paid that debt off since then, acquired more, and now I can say in the 2020, I was able to get all my credits down to less than $100 balance, during a pandemic.

In 2021, my goal is to maintain a low balance on my credit cards, while attacking my car payments. I also want to start attacking this school loan debt.

The golden rule is that you do not want your credit card to exceed 30% of the credit limit.

My goal is to definitely stay under that!

I was doing some research and I found that most people my age, 35 and under, have

  1. Student loan debt
  2. Credit Card debt

I know this was true in my life until I paid off my credit cards.

Today, I want to share what I did to pay off my credit card debt and leave you with some methods that can support you in paying off your debt as well.
