How to turn a hobby into the business of your dreams
My name is Kim Francey (26).
My husband and I have just started a RAW Honey company (it’s only six months old), selling 100% raw honey from our online store.
We have a huge prospective client [who wants them to produce about 10 000 times more than they currently do] and we are in desperate need of some advice from someone who has a wealth of business knowledge and who understands the digital marketing/business space.
We are both still working full-time and don't have a lot of business experience or expertise.
What we do have is a great little business, but we need some help to take the next step.
Would it be at all possible for you to put us in contact with someone that could help?
I only emailed the show because I listen almost every day (it's the only show I listen to on 702) and have immense respect for Bruce and you guys behind the scenes.
Whitfield interviewed Francey, and asked Phitidis if he could answer her questions.
Listen to the interview (and Phitidis' answers) in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).
We take it straight off the hive… straight into the bottle. It’s 100% raw, unpasteurised and local.Kim Francey, Honey and Co

I’d like to know the best way for us to fund this business… We need to build a factory… We’ll need to acquire [more] honey…Kim Francey, Honey and Co
