I figured, I would write my thoughts on making money in the coffee industry. I have worked for several coffee shops, I have also worked my own coffee concession. I roast beans by pan, yes it's work, but it's also fulfilling, however the question is am I making money? Well honestly I would have to say no, why because although I work for myself I'm glued to the bean, and with that I can't go out and enjoy the coffee scene the way I would like to. Now knowing what I want to do, it's a matter of doing it, I feel now that in order to make money, I'm gonna have to network more, I believe that if I can connect with just 2 like minded individuals we could take over the entire coffee scene, yeah like Starbucks did, I want to see just how long it takes me to make what I consider money in the coffee industry. Right now I have the freedom, just not the money to travel and coffee the way I like.It is my belief that in a year I should be able to travel as I wish, if I apply myself.I market my products to individuals as well companies, anyone with info or leads on how I should go about being more effective, my business depends on word of mouth.Any and all words of wisdom appreciated.Until next time here, I'm your BaristOnDutY.
