Her menus are thoughtful. She remembers your family favorites and introduces seasonal dishes on her menus.
She is a pleasure to work with and not only de-complicates our lives significantly (hours back in our day), but makes it possible to have family dinners and truly enjoy meals together.
It is very important to us to have a sit down family dinner together, and we are able to do this because of Virginia.
My Clients Are RAVING About My
Unique Approach to the Personal Chef Business!
Well, the reality is this:
Those Facebook Ads Are Expensive! 💰
If you think that you can simply put a “Learn More” button on your Facebook ad and later find your email inbox full of new leads, then...
YOU'RE JUST GIVING FACEBOOK YOUR WALLET...
When you learn how to market the right way, a customer will easily see the value of your services and WANT to book you. You won't have to pay for ads.
MARKETING THE RIGHT WAY DOESN'T JUST INCREASE
LEADS COMING INTO YOUR BUSINESS, IT ALSO:
- Establishes business credibility and authority in your marketplace
- Helps you ditch the idea of PAID marketing!
- Attracts your IDEAL CLIENT by repelling those who aren’t the right fit for your services
- Accurately showcases your personality and cooking experience
YOUR MARKETING PLAN IS LIKE YOUR 24/7
When you look around at other successful personal chefs you currently follow and look up to...
They ALL have a branded marketing personality that accurately showcases their cooking services in a way that people say:
And if you're not hearing this from your own marketing, then obviously... you're not attracting your ideal clients!
THE #1 MISTAKE STRUGGLING PERSONAL CHEFS KEEP MAKING:
When Personal Chefs struggle because they have no idea how to attract leads into their business, they often give up before even starting.
They think sharing their "open for business" page on Facebook and then posting daily food photos will attract new clients. They then get frustrated because nobody is calling about their services.
If you're doing this, you're wasting time marketing to the wrong audience and in a way that is not going to attract your ideal client.
Or worse! Mistake #2...
When struggling Personal Chefs don’t see the leads they're hoping for, they post more on Facebook, buy ads and generally lose money sending traffic to a website that isn't set up to generate leads.
YOU'RE GOING TO WASTE A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY
AND NEVER SOLVE THE PROBLEM
Throwing money at the PROBLEM doesn’t work! Other struggling Personal Chefs recognize that their website (or lack thereof) is the cause of their lack of leads, so they go out and find a pricey web designer to “fix it.” In reality, don’t you think paying someone thousands of dollars to create the “perfect” website is just a little too good to be true?
After almost 10 years of marketing my personal chef services to a waiting list of clients, it’s as clear and simple as this:
You Aren’t in The Personal Chef Business...
You Are in the Marketing Business!
GREAT PERSONAL CHEF BUSINESSES ARE BUILT
...FROM A STRONG MARKETING FOUNDATION
If you try building a personal chef business without a solid marketing foundation, you'll find yourself struggling to maintain a consistent stream of clients ready to pay for your services.
HOW DO YOU BUILD A SUCCESSFUL PERSONAL CHEF BUSINESS PLAN?
ONE WEEK AT A TIME
So, what if you had a set of day-by-day instructions? Imagine if you could follow these steps with simplicity... EVEN if you’ve never before been a salesperson!
No more overwhelm!
No more wondering if you're going to bring in new leads!
No more wasting time researching and researching!
Imagine for just a moment...
...that you had a day-by-day process for building out your entire personal chef business...
...imagine that you would complete one milestone a week...
...You would have a COMPLETED BUSINESS AND MARKETING PLAN in just 10 weeks from RIGHT NOW!
And you already know once the foundation is in place... it’s done! You’d never have to do it again! Isn’t it great to build something once and reap the rewards for years?!
Wouldn’t that be nice?

“This is Great, Virginia!
...But What IF I'm Not Quite Ready to Begin Yet?!”
This is about the time where you might be saying, “Yes Virginia, but I don't think right now is the right time to begin my new personal chef business. Shouldn't I wait until the world goes back to normal?" NO.
Why Waiting for Life to Return to "Normal" BEFORE You Begin Building Your Personal Chef Reputation is BACKWARDS!
🔥 Because of the pandemic, many restaurant chefs are out of a job. Many of those chefs are jumping into the Personal Chef space. They see that the income potential is exponentially more than what they can make continuing to work in kitchens making their bosses rich. If you waited the years it's going to take for life to get back to "normal," those chefs are going to have that many more years of experience on you.
🔥 With the world at a slower pace and less activities going on right now, we're blessed with more time to spend on learning new skills. Once the world opens back up, there is going to be more going on - more opportunity to postpone starting your dream personal chef business.
🔥 It will take months to gain a reputation within your community as a new personal chef business. Starting now will provide you with that head start in sharing your cooking services within your chosen neighborhoods.
🔥 As mentioned above, many restaurant are closed or at partial capacity. The majority of the public is uncomfortable going inside restaurants, a pleasure they used to enjoy every Saturday evening. Personal chef services are currently in high demand, both for small in-home dinner parties and for meal prep (after being on Zoom calls and homeschooling all day).
Requests for dinner parties are currently double the same time last year! So why are you waiting to get started?!
