The caffeine at Cole Street Coffee House is what we all needed to jump-start the Monday after spring break!

This morning we were welcomed by Kea Runyan and the rest of the staff to this community-focused business in Bushnell. While sampling frappe and coffee cake, we learned about the mission, vision, and values that drive the business operation.

When starting a new business, Kea stressed the importance of “find someone else who does the same business - does it well (you respect their business model!) - and then glean all the information you can from them.” Find the experts. Ask them ten thousand questions. Then make your business your own, but don’t reinvent the wheel.

Thanks to the staff at Cole Street for the great overview, business insights, and tasty samples!
