Opportunity will eventually knock!

On yesterday I delivered my first order to my first major client and needless to say that I was excited! I recall years ago when I first I visioned Snazzy Cakes in my mind and I never dreamed that I would actually one day put all of the wheels into motion and transform my vision into a business. Here I am in 2013 in total shock and overwhelmed with excitement. I'm humble and excited for the opportunities that God has laid before me because only he knows my heart. I will continue to use my platform as a means to live as an example to young women from the inner city, underprivileged and property stricken communities and show them that everyone has an opportunity. One must fight the fight and be willing to endure the journey but in the end God will surely bring you into your moment!

Pursuing My Dream Against All Odds

I have chosen to blog about my journey of starting a business. I will share the tribes and tribulations of starting a company rather successful or not.

I was asked today why I did I decide to start my own business and is it hard?
I responded by stating that I want to build upon a dream and live as an example to my children that you can pursue your dreams against all odds. I believe for me it is slightly different because I have a full time career and moonlight as Snazzy Cakes at night and on weekends. I live in one profession by day and as a cake designer at night. I have found that although this is hard, I have managed to maintain both worlds and in the end the payoff is one that is priceless.  On last week I had the pleasure to have a meeting at a hotel in prayer that Snazzy Cakes would be sold there and with God's Blessings the meeting went AWESOME!!!

So I tell everyone that walks across my path and ask me if they should pursue their dreams and my response is always the same..."I would have rather attempted pursuing my dreams rather than have regret!"

Birthday Cupcakes for my sister Khadija

I wanted to do something special for my sisters birthday and because she has her own radio show I thought making cupcakes with a radio talk show host theme would be great! I made earphones, microphones and add her intials..KJ!
Cupcakes Galore!!!
