Starting a tea room?

by Lady Dawnya » Sep 7th, '05, 19:53

Learning to start the tea business of your dreams is the most important thing you can do when considering a opening a tea room. Is a tea room right for you? What are the time considerations? What are your other options?

I personally spent an entire year crying every day when I went in to run my tea room. Why? Because it wasn't the right fit for me.

In 2003 I wrote the online class "Start A Tea Business" in order to help people learn whether they should open a tea room, a tea bar, a tea speaking business or one of 17 different tea related careers. PLUS give them the foundation they need in tea to be successful.

It's important to evaluate your options and to go into business prepared. For more information you can go to www.StartATeaBusiness.com

Best of Tea,

Lady Dawnya

You are absolutley right Lady Dawnya. What we have put together is a nuts and bolts seminar that is going to give you the good, the bad and the ugly about owning a tearoom. It is definetly not sitting around all day drinking tea, and anyone considering this type of business needs to fully understand that. There are other seminars out there and I have been to one and was disappointed because they painted an unrealistic picture of what it is to run a sucessful tearoom. We are 100% not doing that. We are going to focus on the business side: financing, writing a business plan, a marketing plan and getting free publicity and retailing. The things that get you business and keep them coming back. Thank you for sharing your site. The great thing about information is when we all contribute then we all can learn something new.

I visited your blog and quite frankly what in world does that have to do with tea or seminars? Maybe you can clarify for me. Are you offering a seminar? and if so, why not post your own topic? I'm sorry but this all didn't make much sense to me. Maybe you can fill us all in.
