Turn Your Stress into an Asset

Turn Your Stress into an Asset

tip of the dayStress in a food truck owners life is unavoidable, but it doesn’t have to be damaging. When managed correctly, strain can positively impact the productivity and performance in your mobile business.

Here are three things you can do to make stress work for you and your rolling bistro:

  • Recognize worry for what it is. Stress is a feeling, not a sign of dysfunction. When you start to worry, realize it’s an indication that you care about something, not a cause for panic.
  • Focus on what you can control. Too many people feel bad about things they simply can’t change. Remember what you can affect and what you can’t.
  • Create a supportive network. Knowing you have somebody to turn to can help a lot. Build relationships in both your family and work life so that you have people to rely on during those frequent times of stress.

 

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.
