June 1 - Brief Update

Personal Update

Where to begin? I’ll start by explaining the gap in entries despite much happening with Bridge City. The past month has been insane. Not in a bad way, just in a completely chaotic and overwhelming way. I learned at an early age that though we can often blur the line between bad things that happen out of our control and generally difficult situations, there is a stark difference between the two. The past month has been comprised of much of the latter for me. That was mainly due to selling our Denver house, buying one in Greenville (with a lot of unnecessary uncertainty and difficulty), and moving our lives and family across the country.  Though stressful, all the effort and energy has been put into something positive and worthwhile and, thankfully, has yielded good results

Bridge City Update

Jon has been a champ with keeping our momentum going while I was consumed with wrapping up client engagements in Denver, packing, and moving.  We secured our first order of raw beans with Yepocapa Coffee, Jon and Kenzi launched our online sales, the groundwork was laid with a huge potential investor, we made good progress in finding a store front location, and also secured a larger temporary place to roast until we are able to find a permanent one. Kudos to Jon for handling much of that on his own!

I’ll be doing more detailed updates over the next couple weeks on where we are with Bridge City. But I wanted to at least get something posted to let everybody know we’re still around and moving forward!
