So... What happened to this Cafe Job?

So what happened to this Bike Cafe job thing? Why am I not posting anything about it? Well, I was going to post something about it, but there are a few things that have changed.

I went to meet with the guy, for the first time, everything was good, we got along real well, he showed me this whole bikecafe thing, I was real excited about it and working there. Then I went home, a few days pass... And now I feel like ehh maybe it’s not such a good idea working there, i was trying to be super objective about this whole thing.

This is sort of the conversation I had with myself:

Do I really want to work at a Cafe?

Yeah, it would be cool, because I get to make drinks, be out in the park.

But want is your focus right now?

To get my freelance business off the ground

And how will you do that if you’re working in the morning? Don’t you want to be working on your thing in the morning?

Yeah, I guess.

And what are you getting out of working there?

Well, there are lots of benefits, like learning how to pay taxes, learning some business stuff from the guy who owns this Cafe.

But what is the most important thing right now?

I guess to develop my freelance business because I will still need income even after I quit.

So that was my logic. Basically coming to the conclusion that even if I were to take this job I will still end up broke afterward because I won’t have a passive income, and I’m putting less time into my passive income business because I have to work.

But it’s not over yet. I had a long chat with one of my friends, she also is looking for a new job, therefore she was thinking of working for this bikecafe thing, and then we came to the conclusion that maybe we could work the same days, Fri, Sat, Sun, and then the other days we could travel and work on our businesses.

So we both went to the bikecafe thing, met the guy again, he was showing us how to make drinks this time. The excitement of working there came back, and I thought, well maybe it’s not that bad, maybe it’ll be a good experience for me.

After working there I realized how shitty I am at working for someone else. I haven’t done that for such a long time that taking directions from someone else isn’t something I enjoy. And my Baristing skills are quite shit also. Instead of making a Latte I make a Cappucino, what a shame. This made me realize that maybe ‘yes’ it would be good to get back to a regular job, to revamp those old skills.

So right now we are waiting for the guy to respond. I sent him a message to see if he wants to meet this week, but he hasn’t responded yet, so maybe the job is dead? IDK, I will wait a bit longer, maybe send him one more message and see where it will go.
