Top Tips For Foodie Entrepreneurs From Poulet Bonne Femme’s Sara Mitchell

Have you ever thought about setting up your own food business but were too scared to take the leap? You’re not alone. In Ireland today, there is a bustling, dynamic food scene, with new caf’s, restaurants and food vans popping up wherever we look. But with all this competition, it can be a scary thought to branch out into this industry on your own.

Today, we get 5 top tips for foodie entrepreneurs from the co-founder of Poulet Bonne Femme and IMAGE Entrepreneur of the Year, Sara Mitchell.

 

On finance?

 

When you know you’re onto something good, keep investing your time and money into it.

 

On work-life balance?

 

Being your own boss means working 24-7 but it also gives you great flexibility.

 

On marketing?.

 

Marketing is so important for small businesses. The goal is to make sure you are in people’s heads all of the time.

 

On problem-solving?

 

It is really important to assess the challenges that you have faced. Look at them. Analyze them. In my experience, I have found that from every adversity comes opportunity.

 

On growing your business?

 

Get advice, particularly from people who are willing to tell you what you are doing wrong.

 

Sara Mitchell will be sharing her business insights at our final Networking Breakfast of the year next Monday. Joining her will be Kathryn Thomas, broadcaster and founder of Pure Results Bootcamp, and Anne Hearty, CEO of CPL plc and our overall IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year, 2015.
