    Hi, I am a artisan bread baker in Northern California (Benicia). Here’s my biggest challenge baking from home (no storefront, etc): My customers set my schedule and not the other way around! I find myself “on demand” of my customers. I love them, but really, I should be setting the schedule. I am afraid if I set too restrictive parameters I will lose business. Any suggestions or solutions to share?

    Actually I think you will find that setting a schedule will increase your business! With bread it’s pretty easy, because people typically want bread on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Most cottage bread bakers choose a pickup/delivery day of the week, and then have the same baking schedule every week. It’s your business, you make the rules… definitely try it out! Here are a couple podcast episodes you’ll enjoy:
