I know, I know, It's been a long time.
Where did they go? Did they fall off? No. But on the blog game? Yes.
We just got really busy. We fell in love with the podcast, I became homeless and traveled the PNW, we got deep in design & buildout, and we had to get part time jobs. Don't worry, I move my family into our own place real soon.
Santa Cruz County is notorious for being slow with permitting and processes in general for aspiring business owners. I can speak from experience that this is true. We have had our lease for basically a year now (that's a lot of rent) It will all be worth it but good golly, it's been a long road to get started. For those who haven't kept up with the podcast, our building is in mid-buildout. Check it.
We did all of our own demo, put in all of our cash and got a small SBA loan to follow this dream. It's been a great learning process and the cost has been relatively high so get ready to see that kickstarter. Thats the general update, looking to open late summer, but this is not the point of this blog.
Quickly though, we have to thank all the people who believe in us, who give us positive reinforcement & who follow our endeavors. It's humbling and it keeps us going while all this stuff is in limbo. We want to put into action what we believe in and this stall is painful at times.
We find ourselves wondering what people are into. People other than ourselves. Where do they actually find value? What are they drink? So we created a little survey. We genuinely wonder what kind of response we are going to get. So, if you have the time, give it a go!
