Your customer’s attitude is your guide to how you sell and how you market. It also helps you make decisions about adding to or changing the services and products you offer. Attitude is not all about a customer’s wants, desires or needs. It is about their point of view (POV)— at least as it relates to what you have to offer them. The good news is you can choose what is the best customer attitude and POV for your business success from three options. Then you can focus on attracting customers who have the right attitude match. This will make your business a lot better for everyone.
Our speaker Patricia Bauer-Slate is the reason we have Sweetish Hill and a key part of bringing good AND healthy food to Austin. The amazing thing is she hasn’t done it just through a great restaurant, a deli, or catering, or lunches to school kids who before her would never think of having anything like kale.
She knows her stuff and comes from a food background — her grandfather was a baker. She has shared her expertise with food people at all levels by mentoring startups and helping more established businesses take off or stay grounded. This time she is sharing the over 50 ways you can have a food business. Bet you didn’t know that!
Patricia Bauer-Slate knows food and how to make dough! Learn from her examples about how to weather the rise and fall of the food business before getting burned. Hear how can you grease the wheels for your business. Find the right ingredients from the start. Here’s her recipe for success that you can apply to your business creation.
Come for the stories and stay for the insights. If you are married to or connected to a foodie, bring them. Their future might be made just by what she has to say.
Come early to eat (the event is free and you’re welcome to purchase lunch on your own). We will start right at noon and end at 1. Bring cards to share along with your current success!
