Do you think it’s rational to start a cookie business during inflation? If not what would be the best business to start?

I am currently unemployed unfortunately

Idk if it's the best move during an inflation or recession, but if you do, take advantage of the word of mouth/referral sales method, and local deliveries or pick up!

Apparently it’s not but I will do it anyways until I get a job and that’s my plan WOM and local deliveries

Perhaps something with a lower overhead. Butter and flour add up.

That’s weird and I looked up online food and beverages were one of the recession proof businesses

SAD1 I know I used to bake a lot.

Manager even food for basics I don’t think it would work since everyone is trying to save, most likely that will cook at home. I don’t even know if a RC is recession proof but that’s what I am aiming for.

Thank you guys 🙏🏻

Would it be beneficial to start a LLC or something if I were to go this route? I've only held salary positions in tech.

Hi everyone, I’ve been trying to land my first product design role and I can’t seem to get my foot in the door.

Any advice?
