I am a chef and chocolatier based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota and I have been in business for over 7 years. I am extremely passionate with what I do and I love working with clients who want more than just a cake or chocolates for a personal order or for an event. I built my business on values that are meaningful, by means of caring about my carbon foot print, sourcing local cream and butter, featuring seasonal ingredients, and being mindful of my food service vendors by knowing where my products come from and how each of those items are grown. I'm proud to say that I do not use corn syrup in any of my ingredients and I use all natural ingredients and organic ingredients whenever possible.
To each client who uses my services, my passion for all of the details is what sets me apart from other businesses. I truly care about your order so much that I am honored that you would even consider me as your vendor of specialty desserts. It's a humbling experience that I can provide something special for you.
Like many other business owners before me, we are given opportunities and take risks in hopes that things will pay off in the end and it's definitely true with myself. Somethings worked very well while others were great lessons in life. Those lessons are what makes us stronger and we grow from there. And when all of those lessons take us to another point in our lives, everything falls into place and opportunities are given to you!
I have been invited to participate in an event in Hollywood for a major awards show. Essentially, I will participate in a Gifting Suite where celebrities will be escorted to my table, I have the opportunity to give them a gift, talk to them about some of my services and then take a photograph with them for social media sharing and personal usage.
I need assistance with this event by means of financial assistance. It's by faith that I know that God will take care of all of my needs and if his path leads me to fulfill His work in LA, then I will go and use my talents to serve him. Unfortunately, everything for this is coming out of pocket and if I go, I will not be able to afford much of anything else for the next following month(s) as this would be a large upfront investment. Hopefully, this will turn into something big but only time will tell.
I pray for guidance and direction to lead me to the right path in my business, because if things in fact work out in the end, I may have to move to LA to pursue my business goals. I also ask that my financial burden is relieved from my shoulders and that I can humbly accept his decision.
If you feel you would like to make a financial contribution, I would greatly appreciate your assistance, but more importantly, please pray so that I may have a clear answer.
