Making Your Worm Farm Successful


Is Worm Farming Profitable? Part 3

(Click for Part 1;  Part 2)

In my series on the question:,"Can I make money worm farming?" Is worm farming a profitable business?",  this post deals with #3 on our Successful Business Basics Check-off List:
  • Keep costs low
As you're building cash flow from your worm farm business, managing your expenses is very important.

At first, more money is probably going out than is coming in. As we discussed in Part 2, you are holding onto your worms for breeding, therefore sales may  be negligible. (Good news!  I'll discuss a way to start making money right away in an upcoming post.) So, to be successful in the worm farming business (or any business, for that matter), it is vitally important to keep your costs and expenses down as much as possible.

Tips on Keeping Your Worm Business Costs Down


Below are some tips on keeping your worm farm business expenses low:
  • Purchase items and equipment for your worm farm and office at wholesale, not retail, when possible. (Hint: Get a sales tax number. I'll show you how. You'll need one anyway to make sales.)
  • Always buy used and shop for the best prices
  • Always ask yourself when considering a purchase: "Can I do without this so-and-so or such-and-such for now, or do I have something on hand to 'make do' until later?"
Get the things you need to operate and grow your earthworm farm, but don't spend needlessly in the early stages of your business.  By keeping your expenditures at a minimum, you have a much better chance of surviving the "start-up" part of your worm farm business long enough to reach the "pay-off" part.
