What Are You Willing To Give Up To Make Your Food Truck Dreams Come True?

Editor’s Note: Today we’re excited to present a post from Jeremy Adams. Jeremy is the President/CEO of Prestige Food Trucks, which is the world’s leading custom food truck manufacturer. In his current role as President/CEO, Jeremy manages dozens of employees, interacts with clients, and maintains a healthy relationship with all of his business partners. Since Prestige, Jeremy has launched many other successful companies.

If you want to be successful, then you have to be willing to give certain things in your life up.

Going along with that thinking … what are you willing to give up to make your food truck dreams come true?

Are you willing to give up negative people and mindsets? Are you willing to give up watching TV in your free time? Are you willing to give up your nights and weekends? Are you willing to give up the life you once knew, a life you were so comfortable with?

If you want to be the most successful food truck owner you can possibly be, then you have to be willing to give up … well, a lot. That’s just how it goes when it comes to achieving goals and dreams. Not to mention, food truck owners tend to have some rather crazy hours, so, naturally, your food truck business will become your life.

Realistically, that’s how it tends to be for many business owners — well, at least in the beginning. When you are starting a business, you want to make sure everything is going smoothly, and you also want to make sure your vision remains intact. Not to mention, until you have the necessary funds to hire more employees, you will have to do many different jobs. You might have made your dream of becoming a business owner come true, but you have to work just as hard to achieve more success, and especially to keep this success. So many business owners spend most of their time working on their businesses … and the ones who don’t, well, their businesses likely aren’t very successful.

That should be music to the ears of aspiring food truck owners, because, more likely than not, their passion is cooking, and they are going to be doing a ton of that when they become food truck owners. When they aren’t cooking, they might be making new menus, setting up catering gigs, finding new locations, looking for new employees, updating social media networks and anything and everything to make their food truck businesses that much better.

In the process, these owners are sacrificing a lot of their time, which means they are probably not going out on the weekends (at least not as much as before), and their free time doesn’t consist of solely taking the entertainment route that is watching TV, relaxing, etc.

If you want to be the most successful version of yourself, then you have to be willing to put in the work, and you have to be willing to make sacrifices.
