Changing the world has never been my goal. It’s an overwhelming thought! I can, however, change my corner of the world. Families often move away from loved ones for job opportunities and lack connections that will help their family grow. Poppin’s Play Café is a business idea I’ve been developing the past few years that will combine a play area for children and café for parents in a pleasant atmosphere. It’s simplest function is to allow a mom or dad to catch up on emails while their child enjoys creative play, but beyond that it’s a place to connect for the community. It will offer classes for children such as art, dance, martial arts and book clubs as well as classes for adults including parenting, personal finance, wellness, book clubs and new-to-town meet and greets. There will be evenings for drop off childcare and family game nights plus offer resources for families who are new in town to get information on area attractions and connect with other families.
The first goal is to connect with a small business mentor program to assist me in completing the business plan. The next goal is to secure a small business loan or recruit private investors. Once the capitol is secured I can find a suitable location to launch the business.
It’s a big goal. One I’m not one hundred percent sure I can accomplish, but I believe it is worth pursuing because my corner of the world could use Poppin’s Play Café!
