Updated: Feb 13
Let's take under loop a handmade chocolate with a twist. Do apply and add/change/delete points as you wish. But generally the process is the same.
Research and analyse the market - pros and cons, competitors direct and indirect.
Meet the current supplier or potential investors, business partners - e.g. chocolate factory - meeting with a fair trade organisation.
Arrange written and verbal communication before actual face to face or video meeting.
Investigate their processes - learn from supplier.
Ask for the the potential production of chocolate for a new client - meaning YOU.
Spread the range of saving, own investing money flow, word of mouth - to the right people, business partners, investors, e.g. Dragon Den - go forward - on TV - business investments.
Do you have a total new idea, or a really stand out logo, brand name - start registering process (trademark, register mark, patent the idea if necessary and if super different than anything otherwise TM or R) when all steps above including process of service/production is getting started well.
Samples - produce samples only. No branding, packaging yet. Just brief low impact invest to present. Scale up when ready. Start small. There will be time for more.
Test with test group: users/customers, business partners, investors.
When approved, go to Local Enterprise - e.g. food, education, social industry grants.
Do you need e.g. mold for chocolate? Who will do it, who will produce it, who will print and pack it, who will transport? Pay for Service to be done - top class.
Research accurate audience, market - e.g. handmade chocolate - local market in Howth.
Deadline to arrange real meetings and productions start.
Brand locally and after globally - e.g. Irish Chocolate.
Design the design with high quality digital presents and print brand packaging.
Pack - be ready before. Test small quantity on high quality.
Market. Sell. Test. Sell. Sell. Market. Test. Sell. and so on.
Enjoy, share and grow. Pay back investors. Share profit with business partners.
Keep engage audience/customers.

My Story is Yours too - The Humble Beginning
Hungry for more than monthly pay checks, jobs which gives you specific skills and position but never really fulfil your potential. That's how business was made. Inspired by movie Joy, The Pursuit of Happyness, me a humble immigrant, brave adventures, creative designer, quirky artist, yoga and meditation teacher, Montessori teacher, holistic therapist and most of all chocolate lover. As Steve Jobs said, now I see all the dots from the past came into a place in one smooth order. Career and business can be linear but can be as well horizontal 360° degree as Indigenous Native Americans Indians would say and live by.
Never be afraid of being different.
