Develop a Growth Mindset for Your Food Truck Business

Develop a Growth Mindset for Your Food Truck Business

You spend a lot of time and energy while in the kitchen or truck trying not to fail. However, most people describe their failures as an important part of learning and growing.

Adapt a growth mindset and accept that failure is part of the process of skill development. People with a growth mindset feel smart when they’re learning, not just when they’re succeeding. Don’t limit yourself to doing things that you know you can do — you won’t grow that way. Instead, try things that are above your ability, set high goals that you aren’t sure you can reach. You might surprise yourself and succeed — and if you don’t, you’ll learn something new to help your mobile food business.

Richard is an architect by degree (Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan) who began his career in real estate development and architectural planning. In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
