Joann Poe, Food Business Pathways Graduate & Owner of NYC’s Best Dressed Cupcakes – “Working with my business coach, it really sunk in that I can go out and get clients. I came to the realization that this is really happening. I never tried to get sales, and waited for people to come to me. Now in order for my food business to thrive, I have to go out there and sell. Once I started cooking in a commercial kitchen, I kept getting more orders.”
