There is a saying around our home, “Pursue your passion.” My husband and I have lived our life with this motto. For some families, it’s not one they make their decisions by, however, it’s been front and center for most of our life choices. I am fortunate enough to be pursuing my dream business for the second time in my life. The first time was at the age of 26 when my husband and I, with only $50 to start, opened a coffee shop/cafe called Jahva House. It was our business learning curve. It was full of life, artists, musicians, antiques, great conversations, homemade vegetarian food and of course good coffee. Life brought many changes and we sold the coffee shop. But, now, I am living out dream business number 2 at LoveFeast Life. I co-founded this company with my best friend, Chris Ann. And even though we live miles and states apart, have been able to build this dream, one step at a time, on our virtual canvas. Never in my life would I have imagined that the virtual world would be the perfect platform for so much creativity. That’s what I love about pursuing my passion…creating. It’s the wonder of inception, dreaming and brainstorming an idea and then executing, that fuels me. That is the beauty of being a business owner. LoveFeast Life is a lifestyle company. Our main desire is to inspire others to experience and savor a beautiful life. We like to think of it as a little bit of a philosophy, a little food and lots of conversation. We know we just relaunched our look and feel, but this is just the beginning of our plans for LoveFeast Table. Our hope and dream for this company is to be a place where we can continue to create, meet people (both in real life and virtually) and continue to share the story of that journey. We’d love for you to join us.
It’s been very exciting starting our business, so I’m curious to know: What dream business would you love to start? (By replying you will be entered to win an iPad 2!)
