A look in the rear view mirror

It's been nearly a year since the first barrel was filled with coffee. We will celebrate this week with coffee, cake, cookies and even a blonde ale beer infused with Clout Coffee.

I should be more excited. This past year has been one of the hardest years yet in my life. Professionally, emotionally, financially and personally this past year has been trying. I've never been one to do things the easy way and this last year, I really put that motto to the test. From running one business, to launching another and then launching yet another, I've been smacked upside the head with challenges. Relocating my family and changing our whole lifestyle in addition to the business ventures has turned me into a "mom"ster many days.

I'm not complaining rather reflecting. Glancing the in the rear view mirror for a moment.

While it's been a hard year, there is much to celebrate. So this week, we will raise our coffee mugs; to those to who stand beside us, those who support us and those who left us. Without them, we wouldn't have made it here!

Cheers to the next year. A coffee in one hand and a bourbon in the other. Look out world!
