Baking is a rapidly growing passion among Millenials and Gen Z. They have a knack for baking and often bake for their loved ones. These days many in the 9 to 5 job plan to follow their passion and make it their full-time profession. But a fear of failure or inability to take time off their job to fulfill their love stops them from making their passion a career.
"This is a very relatable story. Though I want to become my boss and follow my passion for being a home baker, I am stuck as a 9 to 5 employee," said Sneha, a Bangalore-based marketing professional. And when asked what the reason holding her back is, she replies, "There is no one to guide me through it. I have been baking for my family for years, but the professional aspect will be different, and that's where I lack confidence. Moreover, I don't even have a professional certificate to justify my skills. Taking time off or a sabbatical for a Pastry Course is no cake-walk as it will take away my financial independence too."
When asked what you mean by taking time off for a course? Sneha replies, "I have researched some popular Pastry Academies like Lavonne, Whitecaps, Academy of Pastry Arts, IBCA, IICA, etc. The courses are expensive, and I have to take a sabbatical for 4-6 months which my company may not approve. Even if I get time off, I will not have any income, and my savings will reduce by 4-6 lakhs. I want to go for structured learning from baking masters, but I cannot give up earning until I start baking professionally. My earnings and savings will play a key role in setting up this home baking business."
Our conversation with Sneha acquainted us with the dilemma of working professionals who want to follow their passion for baking. There must be so many like Sneha looking to be self-employed using their baking skills. This gap had to be addressed through a unique curriculum.
