So when I started my cupcakery and tea business, I evaluated opening a physical location and establishing myself the traditional way. Then I thought, why should I spend all that money leasing the real state space when I can use that money to make my cupcakes healthier. As finally, the money I will spend establishing the physical location will result in my customers having to pay for it as I have to pass on that cost to my customers. If I do that, then I would have to compromise my quality and the effort that I will put to make my cakes and cupcakes.
So rather than investing in real estate, I decided that I should promote my cupcakes using online channels. I will save money in establishing a brick-and-mortar Cupcakery and Tea and use that into using better ingredients, As we mostly use ORGANIC ingredients in our cupcakes. Also, I will be able to share that money that I make with gets charities in San Antonio.
I was always keen on doing something for the kids in San Antonio. Whenever I got an opportunity to teach or help other kids or my peers, I always came forward and loved doing it.
I really enjoy baking and I am very thankful that my parents have supported me to pursue this as my first entrepreneurship venture. My goal is to support the community in SA and 50% of all proceeds go to Children’s non-profits in San Antonio. You can learn more about it here.
I am right now starting out with this venture and I am not clear what all needs to happen to make it but I am determined to find out. In the end, I want to ensure that I am able to leave a positive impact in this world and pay forward and share my talent that shall benefit the kids in SA.
I don’t know where this will take me and this is my way of paying forward to the community around me.
