Thoughts on Celebrating 1 Year

We made it through our first year!  This is reason to celebrate but not to get comfortable. 

I checked and found that the National Federation of Independent Businesses estimates that over the lifetime of a business, 39% are profitable, 30% break even, and 30% lose money, with 1% falling in the "unable to determine" category.  If we closed up shop today (which we would NOT do!), we'd be in the 30% that lose money. 

This is cause for continuing to light a fire under our butts every morning, work hard, serve our customers well and continue to strive toward making a positive difference in the world.  If anything our 1 year mark is a call to continued action and to improvement - there's always room for improvement.

If you'd like to hear more about our first year, where we currently are and our plans for the coming year, I invite you to attend our Coffee Tasting and Speed Networking Event on March 31.  We'll share more.  You'll get to network and share about your business or world-changing endeavors.  Everyone will enjoy great coffee and food!  We hope you can make it.
