I spoke to my mother on the way back from Utah's Chamber of Commerce building. (Yes folks, we are officially in business!) I told her I felt a little anxious because we have our first event coming up on Saturday and we have no espresso machine and grinder.
She said, "Sweetheart, I'm terribly sorry about that. That does sound like a stressful situation. Lightning struck my house last weekend, and I am currently working with the roofers, the electricians, and the insurance company to figure out how to repair over $10,000 worth of damage to my home. Does that make you feel better?"
I paused, and said, "Well, yes. I think it does."
And yes, lightning actually did strike my mother's house last weekend.
Nick and I have applied the same advice to our business that people usually give when a couple is about to have kids: "You're never gonna be ready, so do it anyway." This business, is our baby, and espresso machine or no espresso machine, we are gonna show up and serve! New company slogan, perhaps?
We will be selling our beverages at the Thanksgiving Point farmers market this Saturday in Lehi, Utah from 10-2 p.m. The address is: 3003 Thanksgiving Way. We realize that Lehi is a bit of a drive outside of downtown Salt Lake, but we do hope that some of you will go on a mini road trip and venture down south to try out our drinks.
