Christopher Gee decided to use extra time he had at home during the early days of the pandemic to bake bread.
How he went about it can tell us something about what makes a business a good one.
One of the interesting things about this story is that it’s the story of someone starting a business. He happens to have been 14 when this video was made, but his experiences mirror what many adults who try to start business encounter.
Try and make a list of the things that happen along the way – what he does and what others do – that help him capture the attention of others. What does he do that turns out to have been really good for his work? What kind of help does he find as he tries what he tries? What roadblocks do you imagine he encountered, but didn’t get described in the video?
What kind of business would you like to start? What would you need, and who might help you?
