Tamika Catchings, owner of Tea’s Me Cafe Indy, shed some light on what inspired her decision to start her business. “I didn't get into it to get rich. I got into it because of the community and … to bring people together and build this”, she said.
What inspired you to start your small business?
I was inspired by reading Thoreau's famous book Walden in which he found his vocation as an author during his time in nature, outside of the hustle & bustle of ordinary life.
Having worked in HR I combined creative writing with vocational exploration in a natural setting to start my business Writes of Passage Retreats.
I love that story, @user617815! Hearing about how small businesses and nonprofits got started and what inspired them, is one of my favorite parts of my job. Inspiration can be pulled from just about anywhere. I tip my hat to the people who create a business with their inspiration
We are a local non-profit spiritual, meditation organization which follows the guideline of Self-Realization Fellowship.
We've used Constant Contact for announcements for over ten years. We do not use its full potential.
Wow, over 10 years! That's longer than I've worked here @CMG946
It's great to hear about the inspiration behind Tamika Catchings' small business!
@DashvpopD, Right!?! Tamika is so wonderful, and even more inspiring in person! Every time I've had the opportunity to hear her speak, I am glued to my seat! Now I'm curious, What inspired you to start your business?
Tamika Catchings' motivation to create a sense of community and unite people through her cafe is truly inspiring.
My desire for greater flexibility and control over my work drove me to start my own small business. I wanted to create something that was indeed my own and had the freedom to pursue my passions and interests in a way that wasn't possible in a traditional job. Starting a business is never easy, but with a proper plan and an advisor (mine is from stephenswmg.com) I managed to do that. What about you guys?
