This is the story of how I came to own Robin’s Cafe in the course of 3 weeks with no initial intention or experience in purchasing a coffeeshop. The mental and emotional growth I gained through that experience was instrumental.
From that experience, I also found that when we show up humbly and ask for help, people are extremely receptive. People who love you will want to see you succeed. I was able to raise $40,000 to open the cafe, ran it for 2.5 years, and sold it for $140,000. I left satisfied with many lessons learned and a new understanding of money.
This was recorded live at a Financial Freedom workshop in the San Francisco Bay Area. This, and other workshops, are put on by Motion, which offers online and in-person events on money, mental health, and self-awareness.
