I'll concur that the advice from this forum will never fall on deaf ears.
A follow-up and thank you is the courteous and mannerable thing to do but rest assured that many are reading the questions and replies including the original poster and going "ahhhhh!"
So on behalf of all those who got caught up with the positively encouraging responses and forgot to say thank you; I say "Thank You Very Much"

I see this forum is powered by vBulletin which has been around for a while. Perhaps when you get some free time you might Google on how to group the post or something like that.

I was thinking of creating a spread sheet on my computer, and saving the links to outstanding responses that are posted on the forum, particularly responses to questions that are asked over and over again, such as coffee shop startup costs, equipment, cost of goods sold, etc. That way, I could easily find the post and be able to share it. I have a feeling it would be a huge project, so for now, I'll just keep on using the search feature.

Great thinking... I am sure you are tired of answering same questions over and over again every few weeks.....

I've noticed that we have several long-time members of this forum who take the time to answer the same questions over and over again.
New members often ask the usual coffee shop "start up" types of questions, not knowing that they've been asked and answered many times before. I was hoping to be able to quickly direct people to some of the good, well-thought-out responses that we already have available on the Coffee Forum.
Then, hopefully, they'll start to participate in the discussions, and we won't feel like we're talking in an empty room.

Thanks Rose... I always do appreciate you are around and top of things.

This is the truthful version of the question we all love to hate.
The mythical honest newbie question:
Please forgive my laziness and ineptitude, but...
I really am not smart enough to understand how to go to business seminars, trade shows, visit coffee houses and take notes, nor am I able to navigate through any of the hoops that an entrepreneur needs to to be successful. Can you give me the magic answer so money and ideas grow on trees, and coffee, equipment, and business knowledge can be summed up in one Tweet?
And don't worry, I'll ignore it anyways.
Always the fool,

That was outstanding! It's certainly a truthful version of the question we all love to hate.
By the way, if I were to compile a list of worthwhile, well-thought-out responses that we have available on the Coffee Forum, the majority of them would be yours.
You made my day!
