How we raised the money to open our coffee shop | Episode 3

Welcome to an inspiring journey of turning dreams into reality! In this episode, titled 'MO MONEY MO PROBLEMS = OPPORTUNITIES, we'll delve into the fascinating world of funding your coffee shop venture.

Discover how we secured the initial capital needed to start our business. It wasn't just about taking one action; it was a transformative lifestyle change, living below our means, shifting our mindset from earning to investing, and even selling a real estate property for cash.

Explore creative funding options like personal savings, loans, investment from family and friends, and forming partnerships. We'll even introduce you to a loan calculator that can help determine the feasibility of your coffee shop dream.

Join us as we share our journey, insights, and actionable steps to inspire you to take meaningful action towards your dreams!"
