Why an Organic Food Business Blog?

Organic Bag

I have always wanted to blog about something, never really knowing what that something is, or feeling really passionate about that something, to do something about it.

My excuse is that I have been to busy with running a business, being a husband or being a dad. But then I thought I could blog about at least one of these things. I am very passionate about all of them!

I have realised recently, that over the past 7 years I have started and grown an organic food business – from a little idea in my head to a sustainable profitable business (alot of credit also goes to my wife Sarah who has helped with that too). 7 years does sound a long time, running a business, especially when 60% of Australian small businesses fail in the first 3 years. If that’s the case I could almost be considered a small business guru 😉

I have 7 years of knowledge and experience in the highs and low of running an organic food enterprise. It’s a very niche subject; how many people out there are actually going to startup an organic food business!?

But my experience can be shared with any budding entrepreneur, as a lot of the principles I have learnt can be applied to any small business startup. Over the years I have sought advice from other business owners, who are in completely unrelated fields, so hopefully there will be something here for all wannabe business owners.

I am still on the journey too, learning and experiencing new stuff all the time which can be shared with everyone. By blogging, hopefully I can create a network of other (organic food) business owners where we can share our experiences.

So I hope you will join me on this journey.
