Home-Based Cake Business Success "Daisy Cakes" on ABC's Shark Tank
Like a lot of successful bakers today, Kim Nelson grew up cooking and baking with her mother and grandmother.
Standing on her little yellow stool in her grandmother's kitchen, Kim learned how to bake the tastiest of cakes with the freshest of ingredients.
In her early adult life, Kim began mulling over the idea of starting a cake business.
When her friends, friends of friends, and eventually friends of friends OF friends started offering to pay her for her cakes, she knew she was onto something big.
Her life changed forever when in April of 2011, she was invited to pitch to the "Sharks" in ABC's hit series, "Shark Tank."
Unlike a lot of business owners, Kim swam with the sharks and came out alive.
Not only did she survive, but she secured a $50,000 investment in her cake business from Barbara Corcoran.
In the 48 hours that followed the show airing her cake business, "Daisy Cakes" sold over 2,000 cakes through it's website.
2,000 hand-sifted, made from scratch, infused with love, cakes.
Fast-forward just a few years to 2014, Kim's cake business raked in a sweet $2mil in sales.
If Kim's success story isn't enough to motivate you to start or grow your very own cake business, I'm not sure what else would.
There are a million excuses to sit on your hands and never get started.
Maybe you're scared of the unknown - not knowing if you'll really be able to sell your cakes or not really knowing how to start a real business.
