Thinking Outside The Box Professionally and Financially
on July 2, 2015
I must preface this review by emphasizing that I do review multiple career books (food related businesses)such as this one, because I’m currently looking into them more as options for a second job while I’m living here in Maryland due to the fact that I hope to keep my current job while living here in the D.C. area while working a second job and/or creating a legal source of additional income(also, I intend to avoid moving outside of the Washington D.C. area this year (2015)( regardless of what happens). I’m grateful for what I already have, but I prefer to work two jobs while living in the Washington D.C. area because I recently realized that I must increase my financial value to today’s rate of at least 18 dollars per hour due to the percentage rate of taxes that come out of my paycheck (in order to set myself on a healthier financial pathway). With that said, 55 Related Food Related Businesses You Can Start for Under $5,000 dollars by Entrepreneur Press and Cheryl Kimball contains a wealth of information for those who are open to looking at unique ideas of starting businesses serving food to the public. For instance, there is information available for those who are interested in giving cooking classes (pages 40-41) (not for me though). However, the author goes into detail about the cooking classes such as marketing angle, things to consider (what kind of cooking a person may want to specialize in if they choose to , having take home materials etc.). Creating cutting boards for kitchens is featured (not something I’d be interested in, however someone who enjoyed their wood shop classes growing up may like this). There is also a feature of cookware sales, however the one caveat that I would obviously see is that a person and/or group of people who undertake this business are going to have to have their cookware be unique and apart from what someone can get at their local department store. However, the wide range of ideas featured in this book still make it a worthwhile purchase (such as with chocolate making featured on pages 97-100).
