The Insight Project: Hacking into the food industry with Matt Basile

I was unbelievable excited about a week ago when a Google alert popped into my mailbox and one of the articles was about a food entrepreneur workshop being hosted by The Insight Group. As a small business owner, I have many challenges that I struggle with on a daily basis - especially since I also have a demanding full time job that limits my availability to concentrate on my small business. Each day there are things on my to do list that range from sorting out nutrition facts and bar codes, distribution, finding suitable and available commercial kitchen space right down to creating invoices and labelling jars.

There are days where it feels like an insurmountable task. So I had literally only read the first paragraph of the article and I was excited already. A day with like-minded entrepreneurs who were perhaps struggling with some of the same things as I was sounded like an amazing way to spend a Sunday. Count me in! The fact that it was being hosted by Matt Basile, creator of Fidel Gastro was the icing on the cake. I had followed his evolution and loved his guerrilla approach to successful business.

I applied and this morning found out that I have been accepted as one of the 10 participants. My mind is already spinning with questions and ideas. For anyone out there who might be in a similar situation to myself – there are still 2 spots left so make sure you jump on this chance. Applications are being accepted until Friday, February 8th and the session is being held this Sunday.

Hope to see you there!
