Sharon’s Aroma

One day Elizabeth–a friend of mine asked me to help her prepare an article on bakery business; actually Elizabeth was affiliated with the food and beverage department of a five star hotel. In her free time, she was working as a journalist for a daily newspaper.  I got an appointment with Sharon and on the day of appointment we were at Sharon’s place. The latter entertained us with lots of hand-crafted bakery items.

When Elizabeth asked her to specify the reasons for her success, Sharon counted craze for commerce along with fervor within one’s life as the foremost reason. As stated by Sharon, “The successful bakery owners are zealous about scampering minor trades and making patrons pleased. Not only do they need to be compulsive about the production, but also about other leisure activities in life.”

“Though Fredrik and I make a great attempt to make our customers happy, yet at the same time both of us are always open to ideas offered to us by others and we don’t hesitate to bring about any positive amendment provided it could be easily put into operation.”

“Moreover, I am able to categorize my time and concentrate on the chief main concerns for every day; consequently, I don’t have to make a great effort every day.”
