Starting and running a cupcake business can be both exciting and daunting all at the same time.
One thing that can be quite uncomfortable at first is talking about money, this is very understandable and everyone will go through this stage. It can effect all new businesses especially if it’s your first time running a business and selling things for yourself.
Remember, the reason you’re running your own business is not only because you love doing it, but also to make money from doing what you love. If you do feel uncomfortable discussing money you must overcome it in order to move forward and become successful.
Here are some things that you can do to help overcome the fear of discussing money with your customers:
Start by working out how much you’re going to charge for your cupcakes and each specific amount (6,12,24) and have these prices clearly displayed on your website.
This is the easiest way to make yourself more comfortable about discussing money as the customer will already have seen the prices on your website and will already have an initial price for the cupcakes in mind.
