It's been quite awhile since I dropped a line to you. Many things have changed with Clout since my last post. One thing that hasn't changed is my desire to put more Clout in your cup.
We are gearing up for online growth and working toward retail growth of all product lines in Clout. You might have come to know us as a Bourbon Barrel Aged Coffee but we now also age coffee in Rum, Rye and Whisky varieties.
At the end of last year I made the decision to write a book. A memoir to be exact. In January that adventure began. It has been a rollercoaster of a year, but I am proud to say that my book will be published at the end of this year. More on that later though. I wanted to talk about work and home life.
Tonight, my oldest son and I were packaging up coffee that is being picked up tomorrow. My younger two boys were home after school and my husband needed to work late too. Knowing that dinner still need to be made and other household details, I packed up our boxes and stamp pad. This is something I can do from home and still make progress at work.
After making dinner I stamped boxes while I caught up with my husband who also put in a long day at work. While also enjoying some Knob Creek bourbon too ;)
I'm not going to lie. Building a brand while raising a family is hard. But it is worth it.
One step at a time. Keep going. No matter what your situation is or what you need to overcome. You can start right now.
Take your work home. Get it done. Get up tomorrow and keep grinding.
XOXO - CS

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.

I wanted to start this post with so much more excitement. I should be excited. However, I'm left with disappointment and a little excitement. A business has to take into account many costs in producing new products.
