Clout Coffee Blog

Published Author

Published Author

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 30 years of my life. 

Sometimes I think we look at success and see just the tip of it. We don't see what went into it, where it stemmed from or what it took to grow.

My childhood wasn't great. My young adult years were reactive more than proactive. I always knew I wanted more. 

More importantly, I wanted to share these stories with my children incase someday I am not able to. I have so many questions about my younger years that will go unanswered. I wanted to share my early years with my boys and encourage them to always go after their dreams. 

December is a hard month for me. In my book I share more about that. Publishing a memoir style book in the month of December is quite fitting. I wanted a victory for an otherwise hard month to get through. 

Clout Coffee stemmed from the desire to create a brand that would provide a constant revenue stream. More than that though, I wanted to create a brand that encouraged, empowered and enabled those around me to do more, be more, have more and give more. I knew though that if I was going to get behind something, I had to love it. 

Coffee is the slap on the ass to start your day. Bourbon is the liquid gold that calms, comforts and warms the soul. I brought them together to bring you more Clout in your day. 

So go out there and change the world. Coffee in one hand, bourbon in the other. You've got this.

New barrels coming soon - and they aren't just bourbon ;)

New barrels coming soon - and they aren't just bourbon ;)

Hi friends! 

Exciting news to share! We will soon have coffee from a Single Malt Whisky barrel from Brickway and a Templeton Rye barrel of coffee as well. Next in line after that we are back to bourbon with another local distillery in Iowa. Lonely Oak Distillery is worth a whole separate blog post because those guys are the real deal. From the corn to the final product, these guys are true to their brand! I can't wait to try their coffee. 

I look forward to expanding outside bourbon to bring you many more barrel aged coffees. 2020 is going to be a badass year for Clout and we can't wait to share it all with you! 

Cheers!

Growing this business is barrels of fun!

Growing this business is barrels of fun!

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 I wanted to vent/blog a little while I enjoy a glass or 3 of red wine. Shocker I know. This bourbon gal also likes red wine. 

The growth on Amazon is spectacular. The growth at the retail locations is growing. The growth on my website is tremendous. So much so, that I had to log in and put some things out of stock so I can catch up. I also had to update everyone on barrels. When I logged in to update the site, I was on barrel 12 being "in progress". Currently, barrels 16, 17 and 18 are actually "in progress" :) 

I did a tasting at a Hy-Vee earlier this month and while the coffee was percolating in their break room, I was signing labels. I absolutely love this crazy life and I wouldn't have it any other way. Cheers, friends!

XOXO - CS
