I need to give my apologies to you guys. I have not been posting as I've been working 12 hour shifts at the coffee shop because I found out that my boss is broke and slowly going under so in turn I'm riding the ship until it sinks. I have found information that is beyond me. I know I've been posting a lot of negative things but I needed help at the time with those issues and so glad that I have a community of coffee shop experts here to get that help from. I appreciate everyone that has responding to my posts and face their advice. As I posted in an earlier post I am still looking into opening my own shop. I am looking for equipment and a spot to open the location. I have been successful in some of it and that is also another reason that I have not been posting or even able to get on to read other people's postings and comment of appropriate. Again I am going to try to get on here more. Hope to hear from you guys as well as I hope you are waiting to hear from me. Talk to everyone soon. Also enjoy your holidays!

Have you considered taking over your current employer's business? Or at least buying her equipment at a drastically reduced price? If she's slowly going broke, she may welcome any offer you make her.
Just a thought...

Actually that's part of the information I received. She doesn't own the equipment. That's part of the reason she's going under plus she doesn't pay bills and everything is currently paid out of money we do in sales each day. It's a shame but I have hope that everything will work out.

Hope you are getting some sleep now. You can see that her business is gone. It doesn't sound like she will be around much longer. What is the reason for the business demise? Bad location? Bad product? Bad management? All of the above? Maybe talk to customers and see what they think. I realize that you do not know all the facts but this will be a good lesson for your future shop.

Ouch...sad to hear that. What is your budget for equipment and what all are you thinking you need?"Wine is for aging, not coffee."

I hope she's still paying you (in cash) for working there.
You sound like someone who would consider working for free to help a friend out.
. . . . Not a good idea.

We all try to help out friend who is in trouble. You put your all your good nature at work to help out a friend or people who are in trouble and you find out later the people always have different agenda or truth is not what it seem to be at the time. I am not saying I know the BB's situation.... but always look out for yourself... because most of them time, you are the only your ally.
