About

 

Every one of us has had a moment where we felt really down and out. Sometimes, we may want to be alone to contemplate things and recenter ourselves, but what about those moments when we really need to be around positive people who can give us the encouragement we need to feel like we can finally take on the world again? In other words, a place to go for a pick-me-up!

Hi! I'm Cody Martin and I'm an aspiring entrepreneur in the process of creating a place with that very concept in mind: a coffee shop called Affirmations Coffee.  Its main focus is all about building people up and encouraging them. The baristas will give the customers compliments, words of encouragement and genuinely engage them in conversation to connect with the customer to brighten their day and see them smile. Custom designed coffee mugs will be sold with words of affirmation, inspiring quotes, and scriptures written on them as well.  

The moment this idea came to me, I was going through a tough time and feeling very down and low. I felt worthless and wished that I had a place I could go to where people would build me up and encourage me. Around this time, I took the Myers Briggs test and found out my personality type (ENFP), and while reading through the description, I felt it described me to a T with my strengths and weaknesses. I also read the 5 love languages book and found out that my love language is words of Affirmation. So I decided that I wanted to make a place for other people to be able to go to when they are feeling very high, or very low. We are the place to go for a pick me up! 

With this Kickstarter, we will be able to buy a coffee tricycle and pedal around the Cincinnati area without accruing debt. Our goals from here are to be able to save up money to rent a food truck in addition to the tricycle, and from there to be able to save up money to rent out an actual brick and mortar shop. Our long-term goals are to donate 10% of our profits every year to charities and nonprofits. 

In the meantime, you will find on my current website, affirmationscoffee.com, that we have already started this mission by posting Affirmational blogs to build people up and help get them feeling good about who they are and help get them get to where they want to be in life. 

As you can see, this is a very passionate dream of mine and I thank you for taking the time to find out more about this Kickstarter Campaign.  Your donation will not only go towards the Affirmations Coffee Tricycle but will also go towards making a positive impact on the world, one Affirmation Coffee at a time!

You are awesome! God knows it, and so should you! 

Cody

Risks and challenges

Slow processing is the biggest risk. After receiving the kickstarter funds, the mugs order could take up to 3 weeks to ship out.

Remember Kickstarter is all or nothing, so if we do not meet or exceed the goal, there will be no exchange of money.
