I am working with my state college extension who perform educational services to all local communities. They have set me up with teaching culinary classes to the community and paying me for it. This is an enriching way to promote my business. My name becomes more well known as I do what I love. I assume that other states have similar programs and they are most likely in need of proffesionals willing to teach a few classes.
@ChefPatrick This is so great. I've done something similar during my slower months (Summer is not my slow time, however!) - I reached out to local elementary schools and taught baking classes for kids. It was so fun! It's nice to switch things up a bit - and I ended up getting a lot of future business from it
