A Donut Shop Really?

So believe it or not, I actually do own a donut shop. It sounded cute and cuddly until I started actually working there. I had to juggle my 3 kids, a crazy ex-husband and an extremely back-breaking business venture. The previous owner was one of my friends and she worked there by herself. And when I say by herself I mean BY HERSELF. We were super excited about me taking on this new project and completely unrealistic. So yeah I had to learn how to make donuts and some different pastries. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever learned to cook. Not to mention the most labor-intensive.

Then I had to deal with customers who were extremely hurt their favorite donut lady was leaving. Probably the most depressing time of my life because it seemed like nothing I did was working. The building itself was extremely old from like the 70s. So everything you can imagine that could break on my watch, did break on my watch. It put a new meaning to 99 Problems. Lol. So between learning how to make donuts, shit breaking all the time, and a crazy ex threatening to burn it all down I lost a little bit of my sanity along the way.

I had to learn how to run a business while I was running a business. I don’t suggest anyone try that at home. I picked up side hustles to still pay my bills while I was figuring out the financially draining situation. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I do have direction and I do know how to make donuts really well. So now that most of my finances are caught up, it now leaves me more freedom which means I can focus on making the shop better. So NO, I haven’t given up on my business I just realized not all my eggs are going into it. I have to make sure that I have other things set up so that I can truly have the time to grow the business. And be able to profit from it.

Lol starting from scratch sucks… Yet here we are…
