Newbie to the Hookah World
I realize that the hookah industry is a world within a world. My business partners and I started a mobile hookah catering business and we didn’t know shit about the hookah world. Well at least 3 out of 4 partners did not know shit about the hookah business. We wanted to build a big hookah business, but didn't have the funds to open a hookah lounge, so we decided to do hookah catering. We tried everything from posting ads on Craigslist, contacting wedding planners, and even tried to convince our friends and family to hire us to hookah cater their parties. There was a lot of competition, and even though we only did had a gig here and there, it didn’t discourage us from trying to grow our business. Then we thought about nightclubs, but with the tobacco laws in California, we really couldn't serve hookahs inside without the right permits and without the fear of intoxicated people getting burned by the hot coals.
So we went out and found that there were electronic hookah heads to avoid certain tobacco required permits. We started going back to the nightclubs that we pitched originally and people were more receptive to listen to us now. This is the beginning of VIP hookah catering. At the beginning it was trial and error. We did it all wrong, we played around with pricing, we created a mess at the beginning, but we never gave up. Boy, did we learn fast. Jim Rohn stated, "Don't wish it was easier, wish you were better". We needed to get better real fast.
The four owners grinded it out, day in and night out. All we talked about was how to make things better. We knew we crossed something new. People have tried but never succeeded. We started to see the success grow before our eyes. Then we created a system. We built a bigger team to work more nightclubs (as of this article we are doing 40 nightclubs/bars/strip clubs per week). As far as I know, we are the only successful VIP Hookah Catering at nightclubs in North America and have a proven track record. We are in America's best strip club per Playboy post in 2013. We have done well for the business, and now it’s time for us to pay if forward.
Our friend David Vu, who is a serial entrepreneur, told us about Udemy.com. You might be like me and ask what is Udemy? or you might already know what Udemy is. Per Wikipedia, “Udemy is a platform or marketplace for online learning. Unlike academic MOOC programs driven by traditional collegiate coursework, Udemy provides a platform for experts of any kind to create courses which can be offered to the public, either at no charge or for a tuition fee.”
As you can guess, we created an Udemy course. We want to share 3 years of hard work by 4 individuals who did not know anything about the hookah industry. We compressed 3 years into a few hours. Where it took us 10,000 plus hours combined field work to make it to where we are now. We will teach it in a course so the average person, like you and I can go out and make extra income or a full time income. Why would we want to pass it forward? Simple: #1 There are so many nightclubs and bars across America that don't have hookahs at their events. #2 We have received calls from night clubs and bars across America and we can't fill the void of VIP Hookah Catering. What does this mean to you? This means that you can go out and make some money.
If you are an expert in the Hookah Industry, great! If you are just getting into the hookah industry, great! Or if you are like me, who stumble into the hookah industry, this is great too. No matter where you are at, this business is simple enough for anyone to do. As of right now, Feb 22, we are almost done with the course.
