Hi, everyone! I have been stalking and learning for quite some time now. I haven't had to write a post thus far, since my questions are usually answered after some searching. I have read on this particular topic a few different times, but I have to ask for myself, in my own way. How do you balance it all? I have a full-time job as a legal assistant and three school-aged kids. I want so badly to make a batch of cookies every night but by the time all other areas of life are handled, at least what I can fit in and keep my sanity, I have no time. I want to get better and improve in my cookie decorating but I am struggling to just make the time.
I will find an event, baby shower was the last one, and I offer to make cookies and I find myself feeling a tad bit overwhelmed in the process when the event finally gets here and I have my job to do.
I see people who have businesses decorating having calendars that they are available or that their schedule is full. What is the behind the scenes on this? Is it simply deciding on how many cookies they can handle and only taking that amount of orders? I have seen freezing cookies but that does not seem logical since I would have no idea of the shapes I will need in the future. I am interested in doing a calendar for myself to schedule my hobby baking. I want to improve and get myself noticed so that I may be able to sell cookies in the future. Any advice on the struggle/juggle would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
