Just a Start

My sister Chip and my cousin Cheska have been experimenting in the kitchen to come up with goodies to sell. Their last efforts resulted in really yummy orange chocolate bonbons and rocky road cookies. Just with the people in this compound as their market, the goodies didn’t last long. I think Chip and Cheska mean to sell them at the church bazaar, but my husband Mark has already offered to sell their ware at his office (we’re polar opposites when it comes to selling - I’m horrible at it and hate to do it, while he’s really good at it and enjoys it). This could be the start of something big for the two ladies. It would make a great story too. Chip, as I’ve mentioned here before, is recovering from hyperthyroidism, while Cheska, who’s only 18, is still in school studying to be a librarian (she’s actually already getting orders for brownies and other baked goodies). If they’re serious about it, they could make it work. Backed by marketing savvy for small local businesses, such as what WebVisible provides, they could establish themselves within a market and grow from there. I’m thinking it could happen. How many similar success stories have I read about in entrepreneurial magazines?
