how to become a personal chef

Hi Chef!

I'm Virginia Stockwell, a business mentor for personal chefs.

I'll help fast track your meal prep or dinner party business with marketing tactics to get new clients so you can get back to what you do best...cooking.

Do you have a marketing strategy?

If you think sharing on Facebook to your friends and family that you're ready for clients, then running a few ads to your website is going to bring you business, you're in for disappointment. That's where my vast local marketing experience comes in. I have been studying the frameworks of high-end catering companies since 2005, then started my own successful personal chef business in 2012. You don't have to run through the costly trial and error of testing various advertising methods. I'll show you exactly what to do. Most of these methods do not cost any advertising dollars.

Many personal chefs start with the intention of working their way into a full-time career, but instead close down due to lack of marketing strategy. Top chefs of successful restaurants have whole teams of people dedicated to marketing full time. Obviously, personal chefs can't afford to hire a whole team.

When starting my personal chef business, it was frustrating that there was little information on how to get started in the business. Nobody is showing off modern ways to market. I could only find ten to twenty year old books and blogs, none of them really discussing the logistics of meal prep and dinner parties or methods of obtaining leads.

I want to make sure aspiring personal chefs have the knowledge and tools available to create a successful business. I'll lead you on the path to marketing strategies that you can apply with little to no budget.

I'm here to show you how to build a successful business you enjoy instead of operating from fear of where your next client is coming from.

Are you ready to get start and grow a successful personal chef business?

I'm so glad you're here, chef!
