In her announcement, Bollhorst opened up about how taxing running a small business was on her mental health and the overall wellbeing of her family (including two young sons).
When the store’s numbers kept falling, she realized had to get outside help.
“I finally met a fantastic therapist that helped me to realize that my business' financial success was not a direct correlation to my personal worth,” Bollhorst’s post continued.
Bollhorst’s days of baking are not over, she is just going to focus on the things she is good at over the business-running aspect of the industry.
“My ideal job would be as some kind of allergy safe recipe consultant,” Bollhorst told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. “I want to reach out to local eateries and see if I can help them develop signature dishes that allergy sufferers or dietary restricted people can enjoy in their establishment.”
Bollhorst is also looking into cake-decorating positions around town and wants to start her own YouTube channel. Follow @sarahmakesherself on Instagram for updates.
