The Perfect Little Coffee Shop: Are You Afraid of Failure? Are You Letting that Failure Cripple You

Ah, coffee, the drink of choice when I want to share a special moment with friends, when I want to sit and ponder life or when I want a moment alone. I am an avid coffee drinker. I love coffee and I love the atmosphere of a good coffee house, a caf?.

And, even if I buy take out coffee, which I do frequently, I like to get my coffee from one of these special cafes.

I often take my two certified therapy dogs with me and go for a ride. I get the coffee, they get a little treat, and off we go. Those are some of my special golden moments of life.

Are you evaluating whether to start or buy a coffee shop & espresso caf? business?

Well, I was reading through some interesting information on the internet today. And, it taught me a few things as an internet marketer. First, when you are looking for that "niche", the one that feels right to you, look for ideas in your own "backyard". Second, when you get the idea, listen to your inner voice and pursue it, don't say it's too silly until the numbers tell you its too silly! And third, when the numbers are researched and they look good, go after it!

Have you researched the coffee shop business opportunities and business for sale classifieds looking for that "perfect little coffee shop?"

Are you afraid of failure? Are you letting that failure cripple your chances for success?

Let's look at this success story. First, how many of you are "knitters"? How many of you share your knitting stories with other knitters? I bet quite a few of you do. How many of you are knitters, and at the same time are open for a business venture? How many are even looking for that special business venture?

Well, here is the success story. I mean, if you are into knitting, how good does this sound? What a great place to get away to for a while, pursue your hobby, and have a social life.

This is the story that caught my eye. Mabel's Cafe and Knittery offers "knit-wits" a chance to feed their love for knitting and purling in a cozy Southeast coffee shop.

There are brightly colored skeins of yarn in different textures and thicknesses that can actually be purchased in the cafe, along with coffee and locally made pie. Now that part sounds good, even without knitting. There are tables, sofas, and chairs along with knitting books strategically scattered for inspiration.

The owner said, "It was a natural idea for me to mix knitting with other things. I also think that people need more opportunities to be social." How very true. She was able to incorporate this need into a success story.

Mabel's Cafe, even offers a variety of knitting workshops for beginners and seasoned pros alike. There are new mothers' classes, and of course dads are welcome too. Here the parents can socialize and learn to knit while introducing their little ones to the neighbors. What a great idea. Somebody followed their dream.

I did further research on this subject, and here is another success story. The Knitty Gritty Cafe is "a one-stop place for women who love to knit and love the smell and taste of freshly brewed coffee. Whether you are an expert knitter or a beginner, they also sell a variety of products ranging from books to tote bags to a wide selection of yarns".

Here are some more interesting ideas people have had for coffee shops.

l'Abracadabar
The second Monday of each month: evening aperitif games at the Abracadabar (19th), the biggest free evening of board games in Paris.

les Trois Bornes
The fourth Sunday of each month : round off your Sunday by playing board games at the Trois Bornes caf? (11th).

Le Caf?zoide
If you've brought the kids, this is for you: you'll only find one of its kind in Paris and even in France: a caf? exclusively reserved for children from 0 to 16 yrs (accompanied by a parent).

It's the Caf?zo?de, a caf? where you won't find alcohol or cigarettes, but a real caf? nonetheless, with a bar, games, shows, cosy corners and workshops.

So, if this is what you want, and if you have your own "personal niche" well, at least do the research, do the numbers. Who knows, you may come up with a real winner. You too may have your dreams come true. And lets face it, coffee "is where it's at".

My Name is Ruth Bird. I have 2 therapy dogs, and I love coffee. I am always impressed by those that have dreams, and follow them. Besides health for pets and people, I am an internet business person.
