My old employer said I'd fail. He was right.

My old employer said I'd fail. He was right.

I failed and failed and failed again. I continue to fail. Without all of my failures, Clout Coffee wouldn't be here today.  We all fail. Fall down, get up, learn from our mistakes and keep moving forward.  My start to entrepreneurship was owning and publishing a magazine. I should back...

It's what's on the inside that counts!

It's what's on the inside that counts!

By Carole Sprunk April 18, 2021 |

I'm guessing that you've heard the phrase "It's what's on the inside that counts." Typically this refers to a person's personality over appearance. For this blog post I am referring to Clout Coffee. We make great coffee, but we also look a little rough around the edges.  Have you ever...

Tip of the Iceberg

By Carole Sprunk March 31, 2021 | 1 comment

Tip of the iceberg is referred to as the smaller part of a larger unseen piece. This photo illustrates the expression well. There are 100 sampler boxes in the photo and the amount of time and energy that are put into each piece is unseen.  What I see though is...

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...

Wow! It's been a decade since a blog post. That joke is pretty much overused at this point but I am still running with it.  A contact of mine recently emailed me and after about a week sent a follow up email kindly "bumping" the message to the top of...

Growing this business is barrels of fun!

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...

Why I do what I do

By Carole Sprunk September 13, 2019 | 7 comments

Hi friends.  I often get told that I am "too busy" or "spread too thin" or "all over the place"  Sometimes these comments make me laugh, other times I stew on them awhile. Why do people say these things? Is it because they are truly concerned for you? Is it because...

$.90 down the drain

By Carole Sprunk August 19, 2019 |

I've been gone awhile. I hate to say the word but a bit: busy. Some have said I am spread a bit thin but I know that my plate is bigger than theirs ;) I messed up a label tonight while labeling coffee. I almost cried as I threw away...
