Here is a sneak peek at one of our RESOURCES: at the Maganda Makers Business Club one way we describe what building a business is like is building a business is like baking a lemon cake. 

Baking a Cake Start-up Guide



The type of cake relates to what type of business you want to start.


Ingredients refer to your skills, work experience or certificates you need to run your business.


Utensils are the tools, materials or equipment you need for your business.


Instructions are the ‘how to’ support and guidelines for you and your business.

Step 5: ICING

Icing the cake is all about what makes your business stand out from the crowd.
