Running an on-line business can be tricky and often we have ALL the ideas and NO idea HOW were going to start it! I mean; what does it really take to run a business via the world wide web? Will your idea work? Do you need a specific qualification? How will you begin the process of setting it up and were will you take it in the long run?
We took time out to set up an interview with Jessica Jaffe of 'Over Coffee'.
Jessica has a background in qualitative market research and we wanted to find out a little more about her own personal experience and journey from this career into running her own on-line business. Read the interview below to find out what advice she has for anyone following in her footsteps and launching on-line, the troubles that she faced and faces, the reasons behind her launching 'over coffee' site and how YOU can benefit from being a part of the network and of course.... her favourite coffee!!
Wow, an interesting concept indeed - I know I have had many-a-great business idea pop up over a good cup of coffee with my staff and often actually have had many professional meetings over coffee (and tea, and cakes mmm...) - so I totally agree!
So did this idea come from similar experience?
"Anything is possible: Anyone can sit over a cup of coffee and, anything can happen"
Wow! Now this I LOVE! I can see you have great vision of WHERE you want this to go! This sounds like a beautiful evolution for your business! Now lets gets down to the business questions!
When you decided to do an online business did you take a course or need a qualification? Or did you find you had enough skills and knowedge to just get up and go!
As a woman who wants to see the website turn into a bricks and mortar coffee shop, I believe this transformation will prove to be the biggest challenge.
Great advice for our readers, that is what this is all about!
So if you could send our blog viewers to ANY coffee shop anywhere in the world for the perfect coffee, where would you suggest they go?
There are a few local branches... it’s a great atmosphere, comfy, funky, nice, and they also bring in music, comedy, and talent acts throughout the week.
And finally - just to satisfiy my own curiosity... what is your favorite coffee brand?!
Well thank you so much for taking the time out to inspire our readers with your story! We wish you all the best on your new business venture!
