Name: Kwagala Immy Role: CEO Making Cake since: 2020 Location: kampala, Uganda Tell us about your workspace I work from home almost all the time and I founded the company to be remote-only since day one. The fact that i don’t have an office. It is, in fact, one of the core values of my company. Create your own cubicle, that’s what i call it. I believe that everyone should have the freedom to define and create their favorite place on earth to work where they are happiest and most productive.🌴 For me, happiness and productivity are inseparable. I do not believe in the concept of work-life balance. Work is part of my life, and should not be an antithesis at all. So let’s just make sure that working is fun, motivating and fulfilling. When corona crisis broke out, I was frequently on the road to meetings. Challenges Immy says the challenges in the baking industry are immense, from a reversed order, late payment or no payment. However, the one she finds very frustratingis failing to get to find good baking equipment such as letter cutters, and moulds. Advice As the saying goes; if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. “If you are just setting up as a part-timer you need to give yourself a clear idea of your monthly costs and how much profit (or other income) you must generate to keep going. Work out what your monthly sales need to be, factoring in costs such as baking equipment, ingredients and delivery. Make yourself a chart for the next 12 months showing the growth in sales you can realistically generate and be clear on how you will generate those new customers,” says immy
