After graduating from university, my dad wanted me to look for a job in the corporate world. However, I knew I don't belong there and my passion is somewhere else - baking.
When I wanted to do this as a career, I faced very strong objections from my dad but I decided to pursue my passion, believing it could take off.
When I first started, I only had a few orders a month. In fact, I was making losses. No income in, but money going out 😅 Most of the time I'd be idling at home, waiting for customers to make enquiries, while trial baking a lot.
Initial stages of trial baking failed so badly and I was super discouraged. I had to throw out so many cakes!! But every time an order came in, it gave me hope because that meant that my cakes were better and better. It built my confidence and gave me lots of motivation to try out new flavours and reach out to more people.
Eventually my dad gave in and we made a pact to give me a year to do this baking thing, and he even made me compile graphs every month to show him how much I was making LOL.
I continued baking, few cakes per month became few cakes per week, to few cakes a day. Then I knew it was time for a physical shop.
Just because baking or kitchen work is not a popular career choice, dirty work, not girly, it doesn't mean that you should ever give up on your passion! As cliche as it may be, I'd rather try and fail than give up without trying.
Whisper also believes that failing makes you stronger and even more motivated to keep trying, to keep going #LikeAGirl. I shall be unstoppable, and so should you!
