I just posted in the “intro” section about wanting to create a supplementary income stream selling homemade baked goods and confectionary (starting small scale/local).
I am having a baby in January and then will be on paid and unpaid mat leave for 6 months, and so from now until i have the baby i want to try and plan and prepare as much as i can, just researching and experimenting with recipes and working out what i can make within reasonable cost and make profit on.
I have zero experience starting/running a business, and equally zero in food/hospitality.
I am doing alot of reading on regulatory requirements and trying to get a sense of how i can prepare well before i try and launch next year, and would appreciate advice from others experienced in business and in particular anyone experienced in food businesses from home 🙂
I really hope to start low risk and just see what happens, and if things go really well then i may be able to afford to go back to my main job part time so i can do my business hours around my family’s needs
