Class Sessions

Grow or Stop: The Lifecycle of a Business (19:24)
Get started as Michelle helps you identify your next steps and work through some different ways that you can achieve them. You’ll learn how to determine what you really want, and come to terms with the fact that more success often equals less cake!

Deciding on Your Niche (17:05)
Find out how to hone your niche by diving into some important details such as the kind of clients you want to cultivate, the projects you’re most passionate about, and your true-to-you aesthetic.

Growing Your Space (21:37)
Often, as businesses grow, they’re encouraged to change the physical space they occupy. But what’s the right choice for you: a home space or storefront? Michelle talks through key considerations for growing your space such as leasing, rent, insurance and more.

Strategic Marketing (41:46)
Many bakers are introverted by nature, and overcoming that to run a business can be challenging. In this lesson, Michelle shares how she worked through her shyness to become the face of her business, and how you can do the same. She also covers return on charitable giving, working for free and marketing strategies beyond social media.

Managing Time & Running Your Office (25:54)
Focus on time-management strategies as you learn how to determine your business hours and work more efficiently, as well as how and when to hire additional staff.

Boundaries & Mental Health (33:53)
Michelle wraps up class with one of the most important discussions: scheduling time off and setting boundaries. Plus, get answers to some of the most common questions she’s gotten throughout her career. You’ll be prepared for almost anything!
