A Serendipitous Opportunity


Do you ever wonder at the timing of things that happen in your life? Have you ever had an opportunity that seemed to come at exactly the right time?

That’s how I feel about StickerYou‘s Make it Better small business contest.

As Café D’Amour approaches its 5th anniversary I look around at this beautiful little shop that I love so much and wish there was more I could do for it.

It’s hard on your own to figure out the best way to make a big impact with little time and limited resources (the reality of small-business). If I can only do one thing to improve Café D’Amour what would be best? Where should I focus? Where do I start?

With these thoughts swimming around in the back of my mind I opened my inbox to see an email waiting for me. “StickerYou wants to help a small business with a location makeover, product labels, decals, and media exposure – all valued at $10,000”

StickerYou, I want that too!

If we win this contest it will mean that Café D’Amour can enter into its next year of business (our FIFTH anniversary is January 3rd!) looking and feeling all shiny and new. Imagine our front wall of windows filled with beautiful graphics! Imagine the crisp lines and clear writing of new menu boards! Imagine a space that reflects all the love it holds within! (Is that cheesy? – I’m sorry, I can’t help it, I love this place so much)

Being involved with StickerYou’s contest so far has made me more aware of how much potential there is in our little 650 square foot space, and that’s been a gift in and of itself.
