Creating a food-/drink-/hospitality-related business isn't all about the food or drink. It's about being able to execute well on a plan. That includes building relationships, using the right tools, and knowing when to say no. Midgi Moore, CCTP, will discuss how she grew her simple blog into a successful food tour operation. In this session, she will discuss the importance of developing and executing an action plan, including tools and tips on negotiations, developing a business plan, growing smartly, and ensuring sustainability. We'll also look at examples of other smaller businesses that have succeeded in a similar capacity. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur looking to grow your passion into a productive business in food and beverage tourism, then this session is for you...
