Moving Foward

You may be wondering why, on Monday, after all this time, I just randomly decided to share with you the midmod house. Well, the franchise will most likely require the sale of it.

The Franchise. It sells two products, one of which, as an ancillary sale item, is coffee. My husband figures that we will save thousands of dollars each year if I have access to wholesale coffee. The first time I stepped into one of the stores, I was so impressed that I wanted to do a franchise. At that time, they were not franchising, but now they are. There are currently no open stores in this state.

The Franchise is going to require us to put everything on the line. The possibility of anything but a success is not an option. When I was standing in line today to get my coffee, for a brief moment I thought about not risking my family's future on this random endeavor of mine. But that thought lasted for about a second. I'm a doer. Remain in Cube World? No. Volunteer my time? I am so not of that mindset. And if I didn't work, I would feel like I had some sort of obligation to make my family reasonable meals with vegetables.


  1. I dont know how I missed so many of your posts! Sorry!

    So what is your franchise? I am assuming a coffee shop of some sort...are you leaving your job and buying a franchise? Good for you! I cant wait to hear more about it!

  2. You are so completely brave and awesome. I love that you wanted to franchise this place long before circumstances allowed, and that you're actually going to do it. Incredible.

  3. At times like this you have to believe that everything happens for a reason. Maybe this is the reason. Maybe this is Fate giving you a huge shove.

    We're all rooting for you!

    (Any chance a 2nd mortgage on the house will give you the starting capital you need, so that you don't have to sell?)
