Event Details

Turning Your Hobby into a Business: What it does it mean, and what does it take?

Have you ever thought about turning your surplus honey into cash? Or growing your beekeeping hobby into a source of income? Building a business can be exciting and rewarding, but it is not for everyone. This talk focuses on what it means to go into business, what it takes, and whether or not it would be a good fit for you. During this presentation, participants can expect to:

• Review the differences between pursuing a hobby and managing a business
• Assess their strengths and motivations for going into business
• Understand why a customer-centered business model is key to success
• Learn about the core functions that make up a healthy business
• Identify important steps in the business planning process
• Receive a to-do list of the tasks necessary to launch a startup honey business

The presenter, Mary Kate Wheeler, serves as the Applied Economic Analyst for the NYS Beekeeper Tech Team, based at Cornell University. She loves helping people achieve their business goals, and recently launched a new Financial Analysis and Business Benchmarking program for beekeepers.

This is a free event, open to the public.

So that we can provide enough seating for everyone in advance, we ask that you please RSVP as soon as possible.
