I was with a group of people when one mentioned trying the “new” Keto diet. The millennial described the diet and shared how he became severely hypoglycemic. He didn’t realize he was telling his experience to a genx age group. We couldn’t help smiling because it was clear he was clueless about the Atkins diet.
It made me think of the myriad of trends and fads throughout history. For example:
Everyone still loves Elmo, but who remembers Alf? Do people play Trivial Pursuit as much as they still play Monopoly? Why are we still having tie dye parties but no one is wearing bell bottoms? What ever happened to Tang?
The latest trend is vegan food. It is heartbreaking animals sacrifice their lives for us. However, wouldn’t eating RBH-Free dairy keep cows off of the dinner table?
Almost every attempt to create a tasty vegan dessert resulted in a split approval rating with our Research and Development team. I know there are plenty of vegan desserts out there, but unless you can fool people who prefer non vegan foods……they are not culinary masterpieces.
Feeling frustrated and overwhelmed, I was ready to quit. To add insult to injury, our current pastries are listed as cookies which currently has a low CAGR trend analysis. Plus all small businesses must now be GMP compliant.
After having a good cry, I decided to try to create a vegan dessert one more time.
Building a business to create jobs for others is a lot like life. A Strong Stable Foundation is needed to sustain the good, bad, and the ugly. If you have The Foundation, every “marathon” will be successful.
