As my good friends and family know, after graduating from the University of Iowa in May of 2014 with a business degree in marketing, I had the dream of opening a bakery sometime in the future. With this dream, I knew I should work in the industry before giving up a corporate career, my savings, weekends and vacations.
Thankfully I took an entrepreneurial class that hinted to working in the industry before opening up a business in that industry. This was probably one of the best words of advice I received during my education.
So with that advice, I took the journey of following my heart and I haven’t regretted one minute of it. So what is this journey that I took? No, it wasn’t going on the Bachelor to fall in love. Haha… The journey I took was getting up every morning at 4:30am to be at work at 6am to bake my butt off in a French bakery for 9 months.
In between my recipe blog posts, I will be writing about my experience working professionally in a bakery and what it takes to be successful at it!
