I’ve owned 3 businesses since leaving my corporate career, raised 2 children as a single parent after my husband passed away, lived in lack, and prayed for freedom. There have been far too many times when I felt so alone and overwhelmed that I didn’t know where to turn.
One of those times was during my ownership of The Fat Bean Coffeehouse; a beautiful, large-scale coffeehouse that became a model of success for other independently owned coffeehouses. Musicians came from around the world to perform on our stage and the community embraced us as one of its most meaningful “go-to” places. Still, the financial burden was huge and with so many people depending on me I felt lost and alone in my stress.
