Over the past few months I've been taking part in The Business Bakery's Kitchen Cookalong* as part of setting up my new business Tig's Garden.
The Kitchen Cookalong is a paid course designed for smaller businesses to really sit down and figure out their pricing so they know how much they want to make, how much they are making, what their costs are and how to improve their overall income.
I've looked into pricing a lot when talking to various businesses (service and product related), and even in my own service-based business made changes based on what is and isn't working financially. As we all know, we can't keep running a business if we're not making a profit. But the Cookalong really gets down into the nitty-gritty of where your money is going.
Now while the sessions do dig deep into the details it is quite light on the work overall. Each cookalong generally takes 20-30mins, you get two Cookalongs via email a week, and a week off to catch up each month, which is great for anyone who needs to work on their business but doesn't always have a lot of time. And it doesn't matter if you still fall behind, Julia is always there to answer any questions you may have and there's a Facebook group for brainstorming with fellow Cookalong participants.
The Kitchen Cookalong is a great program for small businesses who are wanting to know how much of a profit they're actually making, or want to be able to pay themselves more.
