Your small business is struggling for the same reasons why any business struggles. Which is precisely why you’re not a startup.

Gee: Thanks for the explanation. I will enjoy my avocado on toast (in a non-hipster way), with a cup of tea (as this beverage is my hobby, future business, and startup area...) ;)

I will check out the link.

All the Best,

Gee: What is the expression "It’s enough to put you off your avocado on toast." meaning? ;) I like avocado on toast! :)

Could your hobby evolve to a business, and then into startup?

Hi Martin.

"Avocado on toast" is a reference to the $9 coffee, hipster-type mentality. Much like zucchini spaghetti, Solyent food replacements, or Juicero (see http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-inside-juicero-demise-20170911-story.html)

Sure, a hobby can evolve into a business. But while the financials may make sense when it's a part-time gig, it doesn't automatically mean the business model will scale. I think it's unlikely a home business would evolve into a startup (I mean a "real" startup) though I'm sure there are examples.

Enjoy your avocado on toast. Bon appetit! :-)
