WA's Positive Effect On Other Areas Of My Life
Last Update: Feb 12, 2017
On Friday, I brought samples of four of my homemade juices to the veterinarian's office across the street. I gave them to the staff with a list of questions to answer: What was your overall impression of the flavor and texture? Did you find any of the ingredients overpowering? Were the juice names easy to remember? What do you think would be a fair price for 16 oz. of this juice?
"Totally random!", you might be thinking but I think not. Since I've joined WA, I've stopped dismissing all of the other business ideas that I have. Rather than dismiss them as useless fantasies, I catalog them in my mind for further thought and research.
Kodiak doesn't have a juicebar like many other cities do. We're a really small town and produce is expensive. But I like to make my own juice and sometimes wish there was a convenient place to buy fresh juice when I don't have the time.
So I did some "market research". I posted questions on a few local forums and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Most people feel the same way. They either make their own juice and would like the opportunity to buy some when they don't have the time. Or they are too lazy to make their own but would buy it if they could.
So I thought up some recipes and bought produce so that I could calculate the cost per ounce on my end. If the feedback from these samples is positive and indicates that I could make a profit, I'll continue the process by finding a vendor (it's not practical to have my own location) and take it from there.
Every since I've joined WA and started to create things of my own, I've been more productive and confident in other areas of my life. My sites are "just" and educational project but thinking and doing and creating is empowering. Period.
