The name of my shop is Chocolations. I am at 447 Mamaroneck Ave in Mamaroneck, NY. I accomplished it by refusing to listen to everyone who told me I couldn't or shouldn't do it. I especially didn't listen to myself when defeatist thoughts crossed my mind. It was a dream and it still is. I worked really hard to learn everything I didn't know about chocolate. The smartest thing I did was ask the experts, and of course the expert on all things chocolate is Clay Gordon. I took 10 months to work in a bakery and see if this was really something I could do. I also took courses at the French Culinary Institute on chocolate. Ithas been a lot of work, but I am living my dream and it was well worth the effort!
Welcome to The Chocolate Life. While I know a lot about your opening the shop (I worked with you on it), I am sure that there are people who are interested in hearing about your experiences moving a home-based business into a retail space on a busy retail shopping street.
