To be, or not to be? The other day I was off to Armstrong National Forest and I took my normal-ish route along Hwy 116. The day was foggy but refreshing and as I neared Guernville, I spotted a for sale sign. I’ve passed this place countless times, but failed to notice a BnB. Somehow it caught my eye this time and I stumbled around taking pictures. My heart caught in my stomach. Then yesterday I received a formal walk-through with a realtor. Bear in mind, this is only year 3 of Let’s Eat. But my bigger vision, as many of you know, has always been to root it in an intimate event space that couples the art of entertaining with lifestyle, wellness and culinary experiences. Is this the time to jump closer to that? I don’t know. My bank account would say no....stay grounded in the here and now, keep plugging away on the popup scene. But my heart says.... find a way. This is your dream.
Keep pursuing it and don’t settle half way. You see in 2017 I entertained over 1,000 people spanning nearly 100 gigs and all out of the back of my car. I slugged dinnerware, flowers, etc across hundreds of miles. Some weeks I would stand almost non stop either prepping, serving or cleaning. Margins were good, revenue was good and I had happy clients. But I know this isn’t the long term. The question is.... when do you know if it’s the right time to make another leap of faith? And lastly, where do I find investors? The startup world is riddled with tech, much less with “experience” investments. And I’ realistic this will take a tribe from funding to redesign to rebranding to make it a go to destination in Russian River Valley.
