Work from home! (No, really)

Posted By on Fri, May 11, 2012 at 2:26 PM

Sure, every spam ad assures that you can make mad money by working from home, as if professional survey-takers or mail-stuffers are still in hot demand.

But the bastardized "work from home" phrase earned back some credibility at least locally when the recent Colorado Cottage Foods Act became law.

Now, stay-at-home moms can make a little side cash baking cupcakes and the like, while would-be entrepreneurs can test out possible products for the market inside of a safe business incubator format.

And Colorado State University Extension wants to help.

For those interested in getting in on the pajamas-friendly work setting, CSUE is offering a one-day "ServSafe" training course on June 21, for $120.

The goal and details:

... to prepare individuals to meet the requirements to produce and sell home based food products in accordance with the Colorado Cottage Food Act. This training will also prepare retail food managers seeking advanced food safety certification ...
ServSafe, is a nationally recognized comprehensive food safety training developed by the National Restaurant Association. Food service managers and Cottage Foods producers need the highest level of food safety training and certification. Participants who score 70 percent or higher will receive a ServSafe certificate valid for five years.

To register, by June 7, call 520-7690 or e-mail juliehill@elpasoco.com.
