Welcome to your Food Business Success. This podcast is for early stage entrepreneurs in the packaged food industry ready to finally turn that delicious idea into reality. I'm your host, Sari Kimbell. I have guided hundreds of food brand founders to success as an industry expert and business coach and it's got to be fun. In this podcast, I share with you mindset tools to become a true entrepreneur and run your business like a boss, interviews with industry experts to help you understand the business you are actually in, and food founder journey so you can learn what worked and didn't work and not feel so alone in your own journey. Now let's jump in!
Hey there, everyone. Welcome back to the podcast. I'm going to start this episode out with a poem. Yes, a poem. I've got some news, no need to shout, a tool so great it'll save your time and make your marketing work just fine. Chat GPT is its name, you see. An AI friend as bright as can be. It writes your emails, posts and blogs and does it all like a trusty dog. With Chat GPT by your side, you'll find you have more time to stride, towards your goals and dreams so true, and do it all with ease a new. No more hours spent on writing, no more doubts or fears so frightening. Chat GPT will make it all a breeze and help you grow your business with ease. So entrepreneurs, what say you? Ready to give Chat GPT a go? It'll help you market your product right and take your business to new heights.
I did not write that poem. In fact, I'm a terrible poet. But a robot did, artificial robot called Chat GPT wrote me a poem after I gave it very specific prompts, and asked it to write it in a very specific style, and I played around. And then that's what I got, which is so fun! And it took literally, well, for the bot to write it, it took under a minute. And then for me to play around with it and give it the right prompts and get what I wanted, it maybe took me in a five minutes. So there's some really cool stuff happening with Artificial Intelligence. And maybe you've been following it. And yes, there are some, you know, worries and concerns. And some people have really exaggerated what may happen when Artificial Intelligence takes over everything.
I'm a little bit more in the middle of like, it's a tool. It is something we can use to create content quickly. And I was thinking about, was talking about this with some friends of mine. It's not that it's going to replace humans because ultimately we're the ones who need to put in the prompts. So we need to be very, very clear on what it is the result that we're trying to create. And then we're the ones who need to filter it, and clean it up, and really make it a good fit. In fact, I actually had Chat GPT write a whole podcast script for me. And I actually read it and I was like, it's fine. I'm sure that I could work with the program to create something a little more flourishing. And over time, it does learn your voice and how you speak and kind of the things that, you know, just your tone and voice and some of the mannerisms that you have. But ultimately, that's not how I really do podcasts, I don't have a script. So it doesn't feel natural to me to read that. And I didn't think that would be the most valuable thing here. So I decided to start with the poem instead to demonstrate what's possible. I know as solo entrepreneurs, that many of you are, you're bootstrapping, you don't have the money to pay a copywriter. Or to really, you know, spend time on your emails, it's probably just not in your, a lot of people, it's not in their skill set. And it's hard to do, which is coaching with a founder who's like, I do it, you know, I write those emails but it's just not easy for me. It takes me a lot of time. And sometimes we just need something to get us going, right? It's like using the prompts the best way to get it to get you the outcome that you want, and then it's a base, and then you can iterate on there. I actually had it write the entire book for Food Business Success. Now, I haven't actually used any of it. But it was very fascinating to see what it came up with. And it definitely helped give me some ideas, was obviously not written in my voice and not exactly the things that I wanted to talk about. But it literally wrote a book, 10 Chapter book in 15 minutes, which is wild. There's also some new AI around images as well. And there's a program that a friend of mine turned me on to that I've started to play with that is around creating logos, or photos, images, where you can say I want a picture of a smiling woman in her 30s, you know, holding a bowl, and smiling and maybe, you know in this certain style, right? And it will create different options for you using what's available publicly on the internet. So that is pretty crazy as well. So all of this to say, I want to help you guys be at the forefront and use the tools that are available, which is why I am doing VIP call inside Fuel that is going to give you tools and help you really understand how to use this tool, Chat GPT, the best way possible to get the results that you want so that it can speed things up and give you a really good foundation so you can get going on these things.

And then you're feeling overwhelmed by all of that stuff. And then this new thing comes in, Chat GPT, and then you're like overwhelmed with that. And then you feel like you're going down rabbit holes with that and you have to learn it all from scratch.
