Amy “Mia” Wilcox…Entrepreneur ??????
Let me see, where do I start? A year and half ago I decided, because I had a need, to open health department approved kitchens for rent. “Great idea!” said all of my culinary friends. I was so excited about the whole concept.
I started to research the need and view forums with culinary professionals. This was met with lots of excitement. I jumped in with both feet. I hired a business coach, a life coach and worked and worked. Then, I lost interest, because I just could not get it together.
In walked my business coach and I turned and ran in the opposite direction. Gone were the kid gloves and out came the boxing gloves. In three months the business plan and the financials were done (That is another post). A huge goal achieved, but I had no idea what was going to blindside me next. Angel investor letters went out, no response. Letters of interest to potential clients went out and very little response. No one wants me, no one loves me and I melted in to a puddle of tears.
I got out my copy of “Think and Grow Rich”, the author is Napoleon Hill.
And I read, “If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it; therefore, you will readily recognize the other half the moment it reaches your mind.”
With action in one hand and my drill sergeant holding my other hand off we go to open Mia Cucina.
