Food Service Business?

Hey folks!

My niece makes the best crepes. She wants to start a business selling her crepes and has asked me to help her. I don't have any experience with starting a food service business, though, so does anyone know where to begin?

We have tested our crepes in various locations so far and they were a big hit. Now we're just looking to make some money doing it.

Virtual Assistant or Virtual Professional?

Well, I've been calling myself a Virtual Assistant, preferring to cater to administrative/secretarial tasks from my home office; however, I found out the other day that VA's encompass only administrative tasks. If you also do web design, desktop publishing, bookkeeping, or a variety of other tasks, that is not really considered being a Virtual Assistant. However, there is such a thing as calling yourself a Virtual Professional. I think I will stick with that term as it encompasses a wide variety of things. So before you label yourself, think clearly on what it is you want to offer. And if you get confused on what it is you do or what you want to call yourself, ask for help. If you're confused, your customer will become confused as well. That's not good for business.

Article Marketing Does Help!

Are you looking for a creative way to promote yourself? Then try some article writing. It really does help. It's been awhile since I attempted this, but 2007 is my year, so I'm going to get back into it. When I first tried posting articles online, I was pleasantly surprised to find my business pick up. People do love articles that help them, but remember to put a resource box at the end of those articles so they can find you online.

In the weeks ahead, I will keep you updated on my article promotion progress.
