If you’ve been following this newsletter for any amount of time you’ve seen example after example of regular  folks just like you making a great full time income with hot dog carts.  But how exactly did these folks get their start?

One of the hardest things to get your head around is the start up phase.  You work a full time J.O.B. (Just Over Broke), so how do you get your cart business going?

Should you just quit and jump right in full time?  That’s certainly one option especially if you have a few months of living expenses saved up, or if you work 2nd or 3rd shift and have your days free.

A better option is to start by running your hot dog cart as a side business.  This allows you to gain experience and start getting your brand established in the community.  You will learn what works and what doesn’t, where the best locations are, and most importantly you’ll begin making those all important contacts with local business owners – possible commissary and vending site partners.

Here is my top 20 list of part time gigs:

  1. Store grand openings
  2. Auto dealerships
  3. Catering gigs
  4. Birthday parties (especially lucrative with the party profit multiplier tips in my book)
  5. Craft shows
  6. Car shows
  7. Gun shows
  8. Motorcycle shows
  9. Cruise nights
  10. Saturday in the park
  11. Boat landings
  12. Golf courses
  13. Little league games
  14. Soccer games
  15. Football games
  16. Art festivals
  17. Concerts
  18. Marathons
  19. Bicycle races
  20. Air shows

Keep all of your profits in your business bank account and start building that cushion, because in a short time you will have enough experience, brand recognition in the community, and the right partnerships established to go full time.  You can fire your boss, stop getting up at 5 am, and finally strike out on your own like you’ve dreamed of for years (decades?).

One morning in the near future you will walk to the trash can and gently, respectfully drop your trusty but no longer necessary alarm clock next to the empty champagne bottle.  You’re free.

Congratulations!
