Remember that post I wrote a couple weeks back titled “My Dream”? Well its about time I get serious and start working on it!!! So in addition to starting the business plan this summer I am also going to Seattle. I have been in contact with Eugene Cho for a couple months now trying to work out a short term internship at a non-profit cafe that he runs in Seattle called Q Cafe. Q is very similar to what I want to eventually create and so I am going to spend a
couple of weeks with his cafe manager and arts director to see how they run things. Along with being a great place to build community, have great coffee, and listen to music, they also donate 10% of their profits to non-profit groups doing great things all over the world.
The official time that I will be with the cafe is July 20 – August 3, but I am going to go a week early so I can explore Seattle and get a feel for the great coffee culture there. So I say all of this to ask a favor of you…does anybody know anyone in Seattle that I could stay with from approximately July 13 – August 3?!? Just a minor detail that still needs to be worked out!
So this summer is the beginning of a big journey for Amber and I. We are looking forward to the adventure ahead and praying for God’s will in all of this (so please pray too!). If you would like to receive a copy of the business plan, that will be ready by the end of the summer, please leave a comment and let me know (this will help me stay accountable too).
Here’s to a great summer!!!
