Mobile Catering

Originally posted 3 August, 2019 Cuffed in Coffee is a business venture that I started just over a year ago now. In this post I want to explain why I decided to venture into the difficult industry that is mobile catering. Following these posts I will take you through my process of how I got to where I am today. First of all who doesn’t want to be their own boss. That was my primary driving factor for starting this business. Although I have been very fortunate with my employment I always had at the back of mind the urge to work for myself. When you are getting paid to stand on glaciers in Alaska, snorkel in the reefs of...

Risk

Originally posted August 3, 2018 I am writing today as I am supposed to be trading in my beautiful coffee trailer but I am not. The trailer was not safe to be on the road. The title of this blog is risk. I am not afraid of risk which is why I am in this predicament today. I ignorantly thought that the trailer was fine to use. I would like to disclose more information but I will leave it as that. Risk is good. Risk has got me this far in my journey to building a business for myself and the community. There is a fine line though. There is a difference between calculated risk and reckless risk. Take for...

Seek the Struggle

Originally posted 14 December 2018. Seek the struggle! I have been having a tough couple of weeks here in France. I have been alone a lot recently.

I have been struggling due to the lack of control I have been feeling. I have tasks to achieve and although I am achieving them in the process I have not felt confident before hand. When something is new it is uncomfortable, your mind has not experienced what you are...

Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

Originally posted September 19, 2018 I feel that today it is far too easy to give up. Live is portrayed as a perfect paradise when really it is not. When using social media people use it as a tool to market themselves. They only post the best parts of their lives because thats ultimately what people want to see and believe life is when in reality it is not. I am guilty for this myself take for example my last post on my Facebook page. I wanted people to now that I was returning for a ski season in France where I will be living the high life. What I did not mention was that I had been unemployed for...

How I Began My Journey

Originally posted August 21, 2018 So the story starts only 5 years ago. In that 5 years I have travelled to 48 countries. I have worked as a camp counsellor in the United States, I've been a ski rep/barman in a little ski village in France, and for the last 3 years I have been working for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines for 3 years as a sports staff. It all started near the end of my university degree. I was sitting at my laptop procrastinating as per usual when I had a great idea. I was going to join the camp america program and work the summer as a camp counselor. I never really travelled before the age of 21...
