This industry, the food truck industry, is not an easy one. It’s an industry that business owners, entrepreneurs and chefs alike are trying to conquer. It’s an industry that takes a ton of dedication, motivation and passion. It’s an industry where people do not achieve a massive amount of success overnight (in other words, it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme).
To be a successful mobile kitchen owner, you will have to know the ins and outs of running a business, and you will also have to be a guru in the kitchen. On top of that, you will have to be somewhat of an expert when it comes to social media (or hire someone who is an expert in social media), and you will also have to have all-star customer service. Oh yeah, you will also need to know how to manage employees, because there will come a time and place when you will have to hire an employee or two (perhaps you plan on hiring an employee right out of the gate?).
The amount of knowledge a food truck owner has to know is incredible. Plus, a mobile kitchen owner will also have to put in the long hours — well, if said mobile kitchen owner plans on surviving in this industry, that is.

6. One Word … Reflect: Reflecting is one of the most powerful things you can do when it comes to gaining motivation. After all, reflection is the process of analyzing what you are doing right and wrong. Reflection, in a nutshell, allows you to look at your entire situation, and you should be doing it on a routine basis, not just once a year around the end of the year. Just think of it this way: Around New Year’s Eve, people tend to reflect on the year they just had, and it is typically very motivating (and eye-opening). Well, you can harness that magic, if you will, all of the time — if you reflect on a routine basis, that is.
5. Incorporate Breaks/Downtime: If you are constantly go, go, go, then you will eventually burn out. While you don’t want to have too much leeway in your days — and you probably can’t since you are a rather busy owner — you do need to incorporate some form of breaks/downtime in hopes of keeping the mind fresh.
4. Look At The Results: Whether you’re a results-driven individual or not, looking at your results is very motivating, for it’s what comes from all of your hard work. If your numbers are up, and your food truck is crushing it from a sales standpoint, then this will motivate you for the simple fact that you are now seeing your reward for all of the hard work you and your team have put in. On the other hand, if your sales/numbers are down, then it could motivate you to get those numbers up, and work even harder.
