Happiness at the food tasting and networking event is coming up on Tuesday, September 29, 2015. A year from now what will you be saying?

When you specifically ask for a tasting where your buyers can come to you to sample your food and you don’t do your part of showing up, what’s up with that?

Do you know why distributors or brokers don’t come to to see you?

Because you don’t show up.

Do you know why Farmer’s markets don’t give you an opportunity to have a booth?

Because you don’t show up.

If you want to get ahead or scale up – you have to show up and do your part.

My advice is to:

Treat your business like a business – just show up when opportunities present themselves

Whether your product or service is available or not, YOU are the brand, you just happen to represent a product or service that will serve people.

My lesson in this is, in creating tasting and other promotional events – we’ll find partners and collect a deposit first. Our time is valuable – if you can’t value our time then we aren’t the group to help or promote you.

This is a bit of a rant – this isn’t just for Food Producers for anyone who wishes to start a business your success will depend upon you:

+ Treating it seriously.
+ Respecting others people’s time.
+ Giving first.
+ Doing good.
+ Volunteer.
+ Saying YES more often.
+ Showing Up and making the best of the situation
+ Putting your all into it
+ Not giving up
+ Not trying to squirm out of an agreement
