- Set Up Shop
To own a business and create a decent revenue is something that has been a seed planted into my head ever since my first and favorite job got shut down.
When I was younger. I worked in a coffee shop, and met many different people from many walks of life. Police officers, Firemen, Lawyers, Construction workers, City employees, Cowboys even, Tribal Chairmen, The state Senate came in once, men and women who worked in the BIA, and Grants for children education. The Dean of the university was a regular. Having that job to walk up to every morning was worth everything to me. I absolutely loved that job I made $200.00 in tips every other day and about $75 and some odd cents and at the time in highschool that was pretty amazing.
Now that it's shut down there isn't any good coffee unless you make your own special coffee or buy it at the gas station, which lets face is not all that amazing or spectacular. So a bunch of my regulars from the shop I had worked with before, had come up to me and said you were the manager, you ran the shop, and had all the things down pact. Start your own coffee business. And now in the university I'm in, and not having a place where you can get snacks and good special coffees and do your homework at the same time. I been pondering the idea for a while. My idea would be a little bit different. I would make it into a relaxing, modern. I would only do a front lobby for homework consumers and a drive thru. Best thing a bout coffee is that it's supposed to be fast and easy.
