Most aspiring beverage entrepreneurs think of their first year as the year in which they kick off production and begin the journey of putting their brand on store shelves everywhere. They think they can simply take their idea and turn it into beverage reality right away.

What they don’t realize is that there’s another year that comes before that first year – the real first year in which the product itself is born. The following tips will help those new to the beverage industry more successfully navigate that first year and avoid the mistakes of all those who have come before them.

Take Advantage of the Help That’s Out There

Twenty years ago, there were no resources to help guide budding beverage entrepreneurs. Today, help is everywhere. There are interviews, articles, and videos online where those with knowledge and experience in the industry share their war stories with those who are just getting started. In addition to this, companies like Beverage Trade Network help guide beverage professionals through a crowded and competitive marketplace.
