Pasta ‘Cuz: Week 7

Another busy week for our growing company!  We had a lot of background situations that we needed to take care of and finalize such as legal issues, getting insurance, and focusing on how Pasta ‘Cuz will continue in the next year. These are the types of things that Grace and I didn’t realize we would be learning about when we applied for this grant. We are still trying to navigate the behind the scenes business waters to be successful.  Because these issues took up so much of our time this week, we were less active on social media and reminding our customers to order. This definitely caused a decrease in our orders this week.  While on one hand this is really disappointing, we know that we are doing everything we can to ensure that our business can survive in the long-term and are happy we still have repeat customers.  We have now officially secured an incorporated status, along with official insurance!  We are still working on upgrading our website to handle our orders in the best way, but the amount of progress that we have made in the seven weeks since we started this process has been really unbelievable.  Grace and I have both learned so much in fields we had no prior experience in and can now both officially say that we are entrepreneurs!  There is no doubt we will still have bumps along the road in the future, but now we know that we are prepared and have the support system to handle any of the issues that we are faced with.
