As of today, one day into being a year older, I am officially a published author.  The title Seed Money was in my head long before the words even hit the paper. The book took a much different road than I imagined. Most of my book I shared the first...

Growing this business is barrels of fun!

By Carole Sprunk December 12, 2019 |

I was recently telling another frazzled business owner to breathe and work through it. Turns out I needed to take my own advice. This is without a doubt a very busy and challenging time. I'd be busy continuing to bag coffee but I knew the website needed an update and...
