Food Blogging

A food blog is one of those things, if done right, catches on and could earn you a lucrative living. Beware, it can be a long time coming to get to this point, but by starting sooner, rather than later, and diversifying your own specific palate, it guarantees you to cater to a wider variety of subscribers and followers. Don’t be afraid to push the boat out, there are many businesses out there that do videos that relate to new restaurants and the like, and, if your blog ends up being very popular, you could be approached by food magazines to guest blog for them, or work for them full-time.

Selling Preserves Out Of Your Home

A modest way to make a meager living, selling jams and preserves isn’t always a big money-making endeavor, but it can be, so long as you have the scope. The important thing to consider in this respect is if you have something that’s far different than anything else out there. While everybody has their own specific preferences or allegiances to natural home-grown products, you could very well capitalize on this market yourself. Be sure to get your business out there, and this can mean a lot of early mornings in farmers markets, trade shows and the like.

Opening A Restaurant

If you are trying to follow your heart and appeal to customers with your own food, then opening a restaurant is a natural progression. Be warned, there are so many different aspects to consider, especially if you’ve never done this before. You could always start out small, and drive around in a food truck, making pittas or burgers, but there will be a time when you need to establish a solid base. In addition to this, there are many rules and regulations that need to be followed, and you don’t need anyone to tell you why you need restaurant insurance, but it’s essential that you do have it. It can be very difficult, as with any startup, during the first year or so, that as you gain traction and custom, but also refine your recipes and menu, it can get better.
While you may have an extreme passion for food, as with any passion that needs to be turned into a business, a sense of business acumen is essential. It’s not just about having so much enthusiasm for something; it’s about having the goods to back it up. Whether it’s as a side hustle or a full-time business endeavor, food is something that will never go away, but it’s worth considering, because it’s so popular. Will you go the distance?
