So you made a batch of absolutely delightful chocolate chip cookies and people around you are fanning your delicate flame of pride for the little accomplishment you did. Everyone is telling you just how you would succeed if you started baking and selling your creations. Then you hop online and see a few hundred other like-minded people doing similar cookies and hoping they will be the next Famous Amos cookie chain.
There are the hundreds, maybe even thousands of online videos and resources that teach amazing recipes that were once chef or granny secrets. Now these recipes are available to just about anyone with an internet connection and because targeting algorithms fire the same content to following hobbyists, trends flow out from "idea to market" much faster than ever before.
