I think it’s a great idea. It’s one of those things you hear and think you wish you would have thought of that. That, or you realize you have thought of it already (perhaps before this person did) so why didn’t you do something about it? My dear aunt Morgan is tossing around the idea of starting a coffee business. That’s the daring entrepreneurial spirit she was born and raised to have, that’s for sure.

I know it could be risky, but this is a risk I can stand behind. It’s like a food truck, but for coffee, and she would call it “A Cup of Joe” after her dog Joey. Joey (who is just about one of the cutest doggies you’ve ever seen) could be her mascot and all things public relations for the business.

It all sounds like a lot of work to me. But that’s because I like to spend the majority of my day napping in various spots throughout my forever home. Morgan is young and free to do so much in life. And I know she can. I guess I always have, but it was somehow reaffirmed in my mind today.

Because great ideas happen all the time. Kind of like those commercials you see for the product you thought of ten years ago but never followed through with inventing. The difference is vision. Today as I listened, I heard it come alive.

“Vision without action is merely a dream,” suggested author Joel A. Barker. “Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.”

It might sound silly, but I the right combination of action and vision can bring clarity to even the haziest of futures. Maybe it can even do so one cup of coffee at a time.

    That sounds brilliant… I would go in with your aunt… love it. In our street a new littel coffe shop opene and it is totally as I would have done, cute, old fashioned and extremely good food. A cup of Joe… super…. tell her I am right behind her.

  2. Mom loves a cup of joe! I love to lick the cup when she’s finished. Sounds like an idea to me. Good luck, Aunt M.

    Love and licks,

    • Oh my goodness, dear Cupcake! You get to sample coffee!? This blows my mind! Mom is so careful with things she gives me, so I certainly never have sampled caffeine of all things. It would probably make me CRAZY. 🙂
      Lots of love to you and mom,

    A Cup of Joe, sounds great! I would absolutely love to have coffee at a place like that. Lots of luck for your aunt!

  4. I am so amazed at your Aunt for having the guts to make that change – go her!! I am a little bit stuck at the moment, with my mortgage I feel trapped. I need a pay check yet I don’t know if my current path has progressed as far as it is going to!

    You go Aunt Morgan! All the very best to you if you do proceed with the “Cup of Joe” 🙂
    Wiles, you have a very courageous family.
