(http://giftbizunwrapped.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Denay-HS.png) Denay created the Foodpreneur Institute as an online resource center to educate, train and support Cottage Food Operators and home food processors.
She describes herself as a food addict (literally and figuratively), a home-based baker and small business advocate.
She's a passionate food crafter, creating unique products that can be taken to market; a pie baker extraordinaire and the mastermind behind the Charlotte Pie Authority, a custom pie shop in Charlotte, NC.
Denay is also the host of Stories of Impact, a podcast supporting home-based bakers and food crafters across the U.S.
BUSINESS BUILDING INSIGHTSLearn before you leap. Take time to learn about what you're doing, why you're doing it and how you're going to do it.
Don't be afraid to be vulnerable and ask people for help.
Your recipe is everything. Protect it with an employee Non-Disclosure Agreement.
YOU are what makes your product special. Your story is your number one marketing tool.
Stop making everything under the sun. Start with one thing and perfect it. This is the key to success.
