So I have always wanted coffee...
and cookies but that's beside the point...literally when I have coffee and cookies...
I love coffee, I wont lie. I have always thought that since nothing is more gratifying than joyfulness, and coffee brings me joy...why not share that joy?
Its not exactly a money making business...but I wish to open a coffee shop...
and working part time for almost no pay...going to college (taking classes that are literally meaningless to ANY career I would ever be apart of...), and helping the family on the farm (They claim they can go on without me, and that I should stop holding myself back for their sake...but lets be honest...my parents are not as young as they once were, the air force damaged my dad, and my sister...she has a new doctor bill every month because her body just hates her...and I know how rough the farm is and while I know they love the life, and I certainly would be lying to say I don't love it as well, its too hard to do with few people, and its worse when you cant do as much as you used to...I have a bad shoulder, my dad has TWO bad shoulders...)
im not getting my coffee shop anytime soon...
I have a business plan,
I have a name, kip-up coffee (for that extra kick up)
for those who don't get it, kip-up is that martial arts movie move where the person gets knocked to the ground on their back, and throws their legs to jump back to their feet.
and im totally wanting to get a liquor license...because whats going to kick start your night like coffee and jack?
I just don't have the money (or the time, but with money comes time by default in this case)
If I can get enough cash not just to start my business above a one man shop...but to hire a couple of other struggling students (because who else would I hire but people in tough times...)
because my base plan only accounts for me working the entire time, both serving the coffee, and managing, but my extended plan accounts for up to 4 other people working, after that its only a matter of applying the calculations needed for those 4 extras to more people, along with expansion costs (or I suppose if enough cash comes in, a larger start up...but for now I'd like to stick to the current plan)
I would love to buy some land and grow coffee myself...but I don't see that happening, and its not actually part of my business plan (but think about the freshness of that coffee! and if you have ever eaten fruit grown by your own love and care...imagine that...but coffee...homegrown...coffee...)
