What misconception do people outside of your industry hold about it?

Some people assume that knowing how to cook a delicious dish automatically qualifies you to open an F&B stall.

There is a world of difference when it comes to being a good chef versus being a good entrepreneur.

Yes a food stall may sound cool at first, but give it a few months you’ll realize that it’s way more than just cooking. Business is about fire fighting multiple fires at all go. Other than your product, there’s people, strategy, execution and cash.

I would advise wannabe food entrepreneurs to plan deeper first before jumping in.
