With today being my Birthday I wanted to share with you all a little more about myself. I am a coffee blogger. I want to share my love of coffee and my journey to open up my coffee own coffee shop with the world. I want to share this process with fellow coffee lovers and entrepreneurs. I am normally a private person when it comes to a lot of things but I figured the process of transitioning from a 9 to 5 to an entrepreneur in
real-time is something that I should share.
I have worked since I was 14 years old. I have always love-making my own money and spending it. I have worked in the medical field since I was 18 years old and today I am 29! I love what I do but I am no longer fulfilled by what I do. I have a position where I work remotely and am able to travel with my job. What I do is not hard it is annoying at times just like any other job. With this job I feel as though it is easy to get complacent and stuck. For me I like to learn at this point I am no longer learning or challenged by what I do. I decided in 2016 after listen to Shonda Rhimes book “Year of Yes” I decided that it was time to really put some action behind this idea that has been going through my mind for years. Over the past 2 years I have been working on this. I have been focusing on cleaning up my credit, mentally preparing myself for this drastic change and learning about coffee.
If you have messed your credit up you know how hard it is to fix it. Credit is a lot like your GPA it takes one bad thing to drop it a lot of work to pull it back up. So, I have been paying things off and disputing thing for the last 2 years. I am still not where I want to be but I have made a lot of progress. I need my credit to be decent so that when I walk into a bank and ask for a loan to open my coffee shop they see that I can handle my own money and I will be able to handle theirs.
To mentally prepare my self I had to really do a lot of work. At the time I decided that I really wanted to move forward with my dream I was going through a lot in my personal life. I was depressed, stressed, overwhelmed and didn’t really how to fix it. I decided to go to therapy because I was all over the places and couldn’t pull it together. Going therapy helped me to figure out ways to deal with my depression and stress. Since then I have read so many self-help books. I have read some really good ones and some that are not helpful at all. Two of my favorite books that really helped me is “You are a Badass” By Jen Sincero and “Rising Strong” by Brene Brown. I feel like to go into business for your self you have to be mentally strong and prepared. Once I am an entrepreneur I will have to make sure me and my child eat. There will be no company sending me checks every two weeks. So, my mental health is very important to me.
I have told you all about the coffee things that I am learning so I wont really go into that because that what this whole blog is for. But on top of working fulltime, working on my business plan. And doing this blog I am a full-time student. I am getting my Master Degree in Business Administration. I decided that getting my master will give me a better understanding of business. Patient Care and business are two completely different worlds so I wanted to know everything there is two know to minimize my risk.
Well now that I have let you all in my business I hope that you enjoy this blog and continue on this journey with me.
