Hot Dog Biz 101 includes not one, but TWO great interactive online books, THREE hours of quality audio instruction, and all the forms and contracts you need to run your hot dog biz.

And now you can ask me questions inside the course!

Book 1: "Carts of Cash - Make BIG MONEY with Hot Dog Carts"

This is the book about the day to day operating procedures, the nuts and bolts, the how-to's. In it you'll learn all the well kept success secrets that the other guys don't want you to know.

I've made it "paint by numbers" simple.

You'll get a step-by-step Action Plan which walks you through each and every task necessary to get you up and running. This 27 point action plan breaks down the entire start up process into easy to accomplish mini-tasks.

From start to finish, you're sure to be on track as you accomplish each task in the correct order. Follow the action plan and you'll have all the bases covered.

You get all the checklists and paperwork you need to make things run smooth.

I'm giving you all of my personal checklists that I use in my business including:

  • Sample Catering Contract
  • Daily Cart Inventory
  • Cart Safety Inspection Checklist
  • Set Up Checklist
  • Tear Down Checklist

You will find all of these forms throughout the Carts of Cash manual. You have my permission to copy them and use them in your own hot dog cart business. These checklists and contracts will streamline your daily operations and help you win those lucrative catering gigs.

Here are all my sources for the products and services you'll need.

Where's the best place to buy buns? The answer will surprise you. How about soda? Probably not where you're thinking (definitely not Sam's Club). You'll find the answers to these questions throughout the manual, but I decided to go one step further and give you my resources and suppliers directory.

In it you'll find links to trade shows, industry groups, financing sources, books, magazines, and just about anything that pertains to optimizing your hot dog cart business.

Is that everything? Not by a long shot.

After I finished writing the first 170 pages, I sat back and said to my self, "Self, if you were starting out today with no previous
experience, would this book answer all your questions?"

I thought long and hard. After all, I had just spent months writing 170 pages of the best hotdog cart information available anywhere! I wanted to say "YES!" I wanted to be done writing. But I had to be honest...

What about the business end of the business? As tired as I was, I had to write another book for you! This one would cover everything that a newbie would need to know about handling all of the cash that comes in every day.

Book 2: "Carts of Cash - Business Management Made Easy"

The second book in the Carts of Cash series is the result of my own experience plus hours and hours of interviews with bookeepers, accountants and a MBAs.

I know for a fact that you won't find this information anywhere else, especially as it pertains to the hot dog cart business.

Don't confuse this with the $14 ebook "Business Plans" that are out there. Those are just 9 or 10 page, generic documents with the words "hot dog cart" or "day care center" inserted in the blanks. Totally worthless.

I'm also giving you all of my hot dog cart business bookkeeping forms which include:

  • Income Ledger
  • Year End Income Summary
  • Expenditure Ledger
  • Year End Expenditure Summary
  • Sample Profit and Loss Projection
  • Sample Cash Flow Projection

And I explain exactly how to use them in easy, non technical language. If you want to use a computer to keep your books that's great, but knowing the basics of bookkeeping will make it all the easier.

In my 80 page business management book you will learn:

  • How to set up your business
  • Find financing and leasing sources
  • Keep your books
  • Manage your cash flow
  • Hire employees
  • Pay your taxes.

I've even included a BONUS section on motivation as it applies to the
growth and success of your hot dog cart business.

At 80 pages long, the business book alone is bigger than all of my competitor's entire books!

Table of Contents:

CH 1 Business Legal Structures
CH 2 Business Start-Up Requirements
CH 3 Bookeeping and Accounting
CH 4 Understanding Financial Statements
CH 5 Taxes, Employees, and Professional Services
CH 6 Motivation, Inspiration, and Self-Improvement

With the addition of "Carts of Cash - Business Management Made Easy", I am offering a truly complete base of knowledge for anyone who wants to start and successfully operate their own hot dog cart business.

Just Released - Carts of Cash Audio Recordings

Now you have a convenient way to study while driving to work, taking a walk, or exercising at the gym. Three hours of content! The entire course has been recorded in high quality digital audio. Very popular with our customers who spend a lot of time behind the wheel!

These audio MP3s were not originally part of the Carts of Cash course, but I had so many requests that I decided to include them. As a matter of fact I did a little research and found out that audio learning enhances comprehension significantly. Listen to the recordings several times and you'll be surprised at how much you retain.

I am very proud of these books and audio recordings and I know you will be proud to own them, use them, and start making BIG MONEY with hot dog carts.

This course can change your life. Let's think about the possibilities.

You could...

  • Sell hot dogs part time for that much needed extra cash...
  • Work fairs and festivals on weekends and make thousands...
  • Transition into a full time business when the time is right...
  • Make $100,000 a year or more...
  • Get your kids out of daycare...
  • Fire your boss...
  • Work less hours...
  • Eliminate your stress...
  • Take more vacations...
  • Spend more time with loved ones...
  • Travel...
  • Meet new exciting people...

My Favorite Success Story . . .

John A. used the Hot Dog Biz 101 materials to start his own hot dog cart in Iowa. He made $90,000 in his first year and is looking to easily break the $100,000 mark in the coming year.

John owned a chain of car washes and he told me yesterday that one hot dog cart out-earns a car wash, even though the start up cost of a cart is 1/40th that of a car wash. Wow!

I'm not trying to pump you up with false hopes - not everyone achieves this level of success this quickly. But you can certainly expect to make a great living if you work hard and smart, and John shows just what can be accomplished in this fantastic business!

  1. Steve,
    I have the premium online version of Carts of Cash. You are the the best for putting it into a format that not only works for reading on my iPhone, but the copy / speak function allows Suri to read the book to me. I am relaxing with my glasses off listening to the chapters. Thank you for all your hard work on the entire package, you’re the best.

  2. Hi there;
    I am in Nova Scotia Canada and would like to order your book and course. I have run a hrt dog cat before in a small town and made decent funds doing that. Now I am in a larger city and hope to do good running a hot dog cart. I am old enough to retire but I still work in construction. I am 68 years old but feel like a teen ager. Let me know if your book and course are sold into Canada. Thank you. Robert J.MacRury

  3. Hi Steve,

    Would I be able to get the course and all material delivered to me in South Africa, or, is it only available online?
