Turn Your Passion Into Profit!

Guide to Becoming a Foodpreneur

Have you ever thought how it will be if you turn you passion into profit? Well maybe it is everyone’s dream. For example, creatives who dream about turning their passion into a business.  A writer wants to quit their job and work on their stories full time. A musician says she’d love to get paid to create music. An artist dreams about working on their paintings all day and not just in the evenings or on weekends. And if you love cooking, being a foopreneur might also be your dream.

What is foodpreneur?

This word combines “food” with “entrepreneur” to create a whole new career title. Foodpreneur describes an innovative entrepreneur that has chosen food creation as their passion. Rather than simply producing a consumable product, foodpreneurs think of their food as something that makes people feel satisfied, nurtured and loved. It’s more like a way of life, creating goodness to share with other people.
