Cookie Business - Part 6 "Making a List… And Checking it Three Times…"
Here we are - back at Market Square Grocery store again today! (Some of the employees are starting to recognize us – they ask about Kristen’s cookie business every time we come in now!)
The other day at school, I started a list of everything we’ll need to do for this business. The list has really grown. And I got a little uptight and nervous when I realized how much planning can go into a new business. So, I double-checked the list. Then, I checked it again. I wanted to make sure we weren’t wasting any time, money or energy. To help us get organized, I started another list – a list of the actual ingredients we will need to buy to make all this happen. This stuff really adds up!
Here’s what the list is looking like:
- Dark Chocolate Chips
- Brown sugar
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Salt – it only needs a pinch, so we’ll just use what we have at home!
Total : $25
That $25 is just to make about 24 cookies. We’re going to have to sell a lot of cookies to make the money back from buying the ingredients. I haven’t told Kristen that information yet, but I will ASAP. She’s CEO of this business, and she’ll need to know. My role in all this to help her get started on her business, and then let her take it from there – she’s got big dreams for success!
Today, at lunch, she said, “Bea, I could see myself doing this for a really long time! I’m so thankful you helped get me started.”
What I know: I’m grateful I could actually help her.
