Stick to One Thing or Master Several?

Jul 22, 2021


What level are you at in your business? What’s your goal when it comes to your business? And what’s going to result in the biggest return on your investment as far as time and money? 

These are all questions you should ask yourself BEFORE expanding what you offer in your business! 

If you’re working from home? 

Then you might want to limit your assortment. Why? For most home-bakers you’re likely still a one man/woman show, may be limited on space, and may not be fully committed to this new business! 

If you have a brick and mortar… 

Then you may want to consider having a menu with options to serve the needs of your community. 

Torn on which one suits you? Let’s talk Pro's & Con’s! 

Let me share my story just in case you're new here….

The Cake Mamas started off as a custom cake and cookie bakery. We wanted to focus specifically on the ART of decorating. We were inspired by The...

Y’all wanna sign up for ALL KINDS of EVENTS! But listen up...not all events are worthy of your time! Let’s be real...MOST people want to participate in EVENTS & POP-UPS to simply make money. SHOW ME THE MONEY!!

You’re GONNA BE OKAY! With Kaylah Copeland

Jul 07, 2021

Have you ever wanted to take a leap of faith, make a big move or leave your career; but you let fear hold you back from making the decision?

At the end of our lives, you’re going to start to think about all the things we’ve done and the things we WISH we did. It’s those regrets that hang around like a dark cloud over us as we live out our lives.

Sorry... (I Ain't sorry!) - How To PROPERLY Apologize!

Jun 29, 2021

Have you ever just apologized to someone because you wanted to move on from an obstacle, issue, or problem that has been lingering over your relationship? 

If you said no, you’re probably lying cause I can guarantee everyone has done it at least once in their lifetime whether they realize it or not. 

It’s so easy for us to give half-ass apologies especially when we’re young because with friends you get into little disagreements here and there, you talk about it, and push it under the rug. 

Now that we’re entering into an age of cancel culture and it seems like every celebrity or person of influence is apologizing for something new everyday. It’s easy to see who’s being genuine and who’s just following a PR script. 

On the flip side, as we get older, and we experience new things, as we grow, actions that mirror actions of a teenager are no longer acceptable. 

For example, if you’ve listened to episode number...
