Over the past 8 years I have learnt so much running @prettywittycakes. Obviously a huge amount has been the nuts and bolts of cake making (those who have seen my first ever cupcakes will know that ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚).
But there is the other, more โ€˜behind the scenesโ€™ side of running a business. ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“‰๐Ÿ—“๐Ÿ“Š There have been some incredible highs and some unbelievable lows but running any business is a journey...a journey of ups and downs and you need those downs as much (or more) than you need the ups else you wonโ€™t learn. Right? Hell yes!!Soooooo right. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
I learn more from the things I didnโ€™t see coming, the unplanned events and the crisis times than the normal days when it all just ticks over perfectly...
๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’• And in looking back on lessons learned, the one BIG takeaway lesson I ensure I remember every.single.day is that business is about mindset. Itโ€™s not about pure skill, exceptional talent or being the best at everything. No. There are heaps of talented artists or cakers. Itโ€™s about being real, honest, true to who you really are and having a positive mental mindset. Itโ€™s about having and nurturing your own strong mindset to carry you through the tougher days. Because we all have tough days. Every single one of us. Itโ€™s how you handle those tough days that counts. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ
How successful your business will be now and in the future will depend on multiple factors but the one consistent element that is vital is mindset. What I have found and taught myself (and others I have worked with) is to look at everything as a learning opportunity. Instead of feeling envy, jealousy, frustration or even anger because someone else did something quicker/better/with more skill, watch and learn. Then kick ass, kick your OWN ass, and make your next day and weeks your time to win. Or your time to learn. But never your time to lose...

THANK YOU to Cake Artist Vilma Aguayo Gaona from Island Girl Desserts in San Antonio, TX for the privilege of assisting her and her new cake business during our consult today. Vilma is an attorney turned Cake Artist! So many of us have DARED to turn a dream into a reality! She is DOING IT, and I'm so PROUD of her! She, like me when I first began, had no idea how to charge for her work. Do I charge according to the "going rate"? What is a "fair price"? How can I even begin to know what to charge when others don't like to make their prices public? Should I be charging more, or less than someone who has a storefront? So many GREAT questions! We discussed all of this, PLUS, I taught her my FAIL-PROOF cake pricing techniques. No, we DO NOT charge according to what SOMEONE ELSE is charging. We are each individual Cake Artists with different talents, strengths, and work ethics. Each Cake Artist needs to learn how to charge for THEIR OWN work. The work is different. The Artist is different, but the cake pricing technique works for ALL. No matter WHO we are, WHERE we are, or the TYPES of cakes we make, we all still need to respect our art, value our own time, and charge for our work in a way that will PROFIT us! If not, WHY are we in business? Did we DREAM of having our own cake business JUST to clock in and clock out? Just to "compensate us for our time"? Or, are we in business to MAKE A PROFIT?! To IMPROVE our lives and the lives of those around us!? We KNOW that God has blessed us with this talent for a reason! That reason is to MAKE LIFE BETTER! For our ENJOYMENT, PEACE, and HAPPINESS! I LOVE teaching Cake Artists HOW to have a peaceful, stress-free, and PROFITABLE business! Thank you for the opportunity Vilma and God bless you and your business! I know you're going to do GREAT things! (If you have questions on booking a private consult with me, please feel free to DM).
