Carda-whatever and a new apprenticeship
Well, I am not losing my mind, at least not over some carda-whatever. I have a picture of a label in my camera-phone that I will have to upload if I can figure out how. The label on the containers of carda-whatever are actually spelled wrong! HA, no wonder I was confused.
Anyhooo, enough on my spelling angst. I am only working every other weekend at the bakery for the winter and finishing my apprenticeship at a coffeehouse. It's a lot slower paced there, with a very limited menu of baked items. Muffins, brownies and cookies are all I have to make. Usually, the owner makes the muffins as I can't come in early in the morning anymore because of my winter schedule. It's the break I need as I have two really intense classes for the winter, accounting and small business management. SBM is basically all about making a "real" business plan. The final exam is presenting your plan to the class and teacher like they are bankers and you are trying to get a loan. So, I am doing a lot or research into pricing of items like supplies, equipment and even drywall for the remodeling of my "shop." I also have to come up with a name, menu and pricing, along with a zillion other things I can't think of right now as my head is swimming with ideas. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
See where I am spending my apprenticeship:
