Flashback Friday: A Look Back At FoodTruckr’s First Article Of 2017

Flashback Friday

In this week’s edition of Flashback Friday, we are going to go back to the first of the year. That’s right, we are going to take a look at our first article of 2017.

Here’s the title of it: Lessons Food Truck Owners Can Learn From A Doer.

Now, while it is ideal to be a dreamer and a doer — because then you will have a vision and actually act upon it, in a nutshell — being a doer is very important. You can’t simply be a dreamer if you plan on succeeding as a food truck owner. After all, you need to be taking action, implementing new strategies, cooking food for customers, etc.

If you still aren’t convinced, then make sure to, in Flashback Friday fashion, check out the article below. We will be providing a preview and the link so you can read the article in its entirety. Happy Friday, FoodTruckrs, and good luck crushing your goals this weekend!

Lessons Food Truck Owners Can Learn From A Doer

“Are you a doer or are you a dreamer? The two are very different from one another; however, a food truck owner would be doing himself/herself a huge favor by taking on traits of both.

You see, a doer is a person who comes up with a plan, starts said plan and then finishes this same plan. Meanwhile, a dreamer is typically someone who has a ton of vision and great ideas. Unfortunately, a dreamer might not finish a project that he/she starts.

If you combine both, then you will be a visionary and an achiever — it’s the ultimate combo, really.

In hopes of starting off the new year right, food truck business owners would be doing themselves a huge favor by taking some pages out of a doer’s playbook.”

“How To Knock Out Work Even When You Aren’t Motivated

This is a big one. It’s easy to say you are going to enter more catering gigs in 2017, but will you actually do it? It’s easy to say you are going to put in a 15-hour day at your food truck every now and then in hopes of making more money in 2017, but are you going to actually do it?

Not only do doers do (if they say they are going to do something, then they do it), but they also work no matter what. You know, even when their motivation levels are at an all-time low. That’s because doers tend to know the consequences if they don’t knock out a specific project. They could get behind on their work, they could end up rushing the project as a result of being behind or they could get fired from said project altogether.”

The key is getting started, which, of course, you already did by purchasing your food truck in the first place.

Nonetheless, the sooner you become a doer, the sooner you will actually start accomplishing all of your goals and dreams. Now, there is nothing wrong with being a dreamer, but you need to take action on top of that.
