Today on the Bacon Salt blog Justin and Dave tell us how we can start a food business with only $5,000 and an idea. The one thing I saw repeated in the article was passion. Without it you will most likely give up at the first setback.
The article covers five basic areas:
- How do I get started?
- How do I manufacture my product?
- How do I get my product into grocery stores?
- How do grocers price products?
- How much will it cost me to get started?
After reading the article and seeing how simple it was, I got the sudden urge to try and make something. But then I started thinking about the time investment involved. Even by following these steps it’s going to take a lot of time to take an idea, and make it a final product. This fact is the reason they kept saying you need to make something you’re passionate about. So instead of just rushing to make the next big bacon item just because I know how, I am going to wait.
Before I make the time investment, I really want to make sure its a good solid idea. I don’t want to be the next Rocco and just push out crappy bacon products to try and make a buck. I want to make bacon products that come from the heart and people will enjoy.
Maybe in 2010 I will start my line of Official Mr. Baconpants products.
