10 Reasons why a journalist must buy a food truck

No matter what you are, buying a food truck, cooking what you love, watching the people eat and love your food as you are cooking is probably the best thing that can happen to a person.

Now I’ve seen a few people(on TV), leave their well earned, classy jobs to buy a truck, modify it and convert it to a gastronomic experience on wheels. When a journalist buys a food truck, I am sure nothing, I mean NOTHING can go wrong.

Heres why, 
1. you are always under pressure to file before dead lines 
2. you are always on the move to find something ‘new’ 
3. you know how to have a good time when you are reporting, that is working
4. Journalists are talkers. And for the food truck business, talking is key
5. you always have an ‘angle’ and this comes in handy when you are trying to make creative food
6. You are economical. You can make do with space crunches, manage budgets, basically deal with any challenge! 
7. Journalism wears your out sometimes, makes you want to follow your dream. The weariness will make you better in your passion.
8. Just like taking risks for a report, a creative food trucker must be adventurous with finding flavours.
9. You are are always waiting for the result. In the food business, the result is obvious. In journalism, result finding is excruciating, especially when you are in the learning-process, and you are waiting to see if you have taken the right intro for a report. This has happened to me many times!
10. There is no possible way to have a friendly boss in journalism. Just get the damn food truck.
