I received the following moving message this weekend:
"Good day, I recently learned that after nearly 30 years a the same work place, I will be losing my job. A large company has bought the business I am working for and my job will be eliminated.
I say the idea of worm farming came from God because how else could a 58 year old grandmother who worked in a bank all her life come up with the idea.
I live in an area between two lakes and a river so I want to raise night crawlers to sell to bait shops. I purchased your book "How to start a profitable worm business on a shoestring budget" and I am trying to get my business started right from the start. Do you have any suggestion for my situation?
Thank you Jenny"
thank you very much for your message! First of all I want let you know that I can identify with your situation as I started my first worm farming business many years ago as well because I had been retrenched and couldn't find any work that would support me and where bearable at the same time!
I wrote the book exactly for people like you! People that, without it being their fault at all, find themselves in trouble making a living and that are eager and keen to create their own income and start their own business from scratch.
What you find in the book are my own experiences that I made over more than a decade and I tried to explain them as detailed as possible for you and all the other aspiring worm farmers that purchased my book When you work with "How to start a profitable worm business on a shoestring budget" take your time to read the book from beginning to end to fully grasp the concepts that I shared in it.
Than start implementing them one at a time.
1) It is vital that you get your first batch of worms asap and start multiplying them to the point where you can afford to sell them without depleting your stocks!
2)Fishing worms should definitely be a good market for you and that market is usually very profitable. The other markets that should be good and I suggest you investigate and pursue are the domestic worm bins / worm farms and composting worms in buckets. Those are our bread and butter. See if you can get garden centers /nurseries to stock the buckets with 500 compost worms. Once you got your foot in the door this will probably bring you regular income.
Think about building a website. I left that link to my service provider in the book. They are really pushing my business and I can only encourage you to give it a try. If you have further questions about that let me know.
Advertise on free classified websites that are popular in your part of the world.
Lastly, just be persistent and trust in the process and you should be able to make your mark in the worm farming industry!
All my best wishes and blessings to you!
