High Low Buffalo

by Josh Lindstrom on

 

The year that never happened.
If I don’t write for a year, did the year even happen?
Yes, I can say with a loud and clear voice that 2022 did happen for sure! As much as I would love to give you a detailed play by play for last year, I am struggling to just get this recap out to you before the calendar changes over to February.
Buffalo 
Did you know that I can juggle? One weekend in the early 2000’s in college, I made it my goal to not study but rather to learn to juggle.I worked tirelessly at that goal and was able to juggle by the time I went to bed on Sunday night. Well, I can still juggle but I can only juggle three things at a time.
High
When 2021 closed out, I was feeling good! Fika was in a good spot, had a cafe manager and a head roaster. I started the year off, thinking I can finally start working on my business a little bit and not be sucked into working in the business. I was juggling the right amount of things and feeling good about it.
Actually feeling so good about it, that I was able to take a trip of a lifetime. With my whole family and my mother and sister we went to Wales for the first three weeks in June. My mothers family is from Wales, so we got to spend time meeting and re meeting family, the kids seeing a new culture and meeting cousins, of some degree, and we even got to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in Great Britain.
Low
Once I got back to Minnesota in late June, things started to unravel a little and pretty soon I wasn’t juggling three things. Summer trips and dreams needed to be canceled or changed and some frustration set in as I felt like I was moving clearly backwards just when I thought we had momentum and opportunities to be making growth forward. What had happened is,  I lost Fika’s “head roaster” to a family move and my summer was looking a lot different than I thought, as I was spending a majority of the week now standing behind the roaster.
Shout Out
Here is a shout out to Erik, for his short time here he was awesome and contributed so much to Fika in that short period of time, so Thank You Erik for being our Head Roaster!
Interlude
Pause for a short story. When I would tell people that I lost my roaster they would get really confused at how I could lose my roaster. It's a thousand pounds and pretty large.
Juggler turned Magician?
So to not be just a downer about last year, even with all the juggling I’m doing and remember I can only juggle three things at once and it feels like I’m juggling 16 and some aspects of Fika and my life are feeling that tension.
I will close with what is another highlight from this last year! Fika has purchased a parcel of land in the business park in Grand Marais. If you have followed us for a while, you know that we have outgrown our current space here in Lutsen. When I say outgrown, let me be specific. Fika is actually two different businesses, a coffee shop and a coffee roaster. ( technically its just one business but feels like two). Our roasting side of the business has reached its capacity quite some time ago and we have been in the way of the coffee shop and I have been searching to discover what would be next for Fika.
Well..
I closed on the property at the end of October, in the beginning of December I hired an architect to design the new building, and have a couple of close  friends who is going to build this new roastery.
So 2023 is going to be another year for the record books.
 
I can’t do this alone and I’m very appreciative for all you folks who come and support me, my family and Fika.

  • If you’re a victim of Bitcoin scam or you’re trying to recover your lost coin from a wallet, do not hesitate to email [COINSRECOVERYWORLDWIDE@GMAIL.COM] Obviously Rick doesn’t know I’m putting this out here just my way of showing appreciation because I feel so indebted to him for the tremendous job he did and to let people know there’s a good guy out there. It all started in March when I sold my Town house in British Columbia to buy a new home in Toronto then I invested part of the proceed with a broker, I never knew I was being cat fished. I was scammed a whooping sum of $36,000 and It became more frustrating when I lost an additional $12,000 to online imposters who claim to help. I almost gave up on my quest for recovering my stolen money before I read an article on New Times Square about Rick’s progressive success on cryptocurrency scam recovery then I said to myself this will be my last try, yes it was and it was a success. All thanks to COINSRECOVERYWORLDWIDE Contact him now if you want to feel this level of happiness and confidence again.

  • My wife and I already have a career but before our baby was born, having an extra income for our growing family won’t be bad, that’s what my wife and I had thought. We both decided to invest in cryptocurrency mining and forex trading. I invested part of my savings and my wife did the same. Unfortunately, it was an organized fraudulent website, and my wife and I are now on the verge of losing 500,000.00 Canadian Dollars of our savings. It took us by surprise because a family friend suggested that platform we had invested in when we were conversing on Instagram. After many queries, we found out that our friend’s IG account was hacked from Senegal and all the money I thought we had been investing was being sent to a scammer in Africa. I found out about all of these with the help of a legit and reliable Wizard Retrive Agency on the internet. Wizard Retrive Agency can help you track and recoup lost funds from scammers so long as you provide them with valid proof you did lose your funds to scammers. We didn’t hire them to recover our lost funds at first, we only hired them for a background check about the investment company because they had asked us for the last payment of 100,000 Canadian Dollars for us to get a withdrawal permit for our investment with them and we just wanted to be sure before sending it to them. We were really lucky to have contacted Wizard Retrive Agency because we would have lost more money. Everything was a success at the end of it because we were able to get back all the money we had invested, recovered, and refunded. This testimony might just be another article to you on the internet but to me and my wife, it was the most challenging moment of our life and I am glad that my pregnant wife didn’t lose our baby because we were both emotionally deteriorated at that moment.

  • Be careful of people asking for your money or investment platforms promising huge returns. They lure victims into fake programs. I was scammed of 398,450 U S D. While researching on how to recover my funds, I came across several recommendations on Bitcoin Abuse Forum about coinsrecovery organization. I contacted him via (coinsrecoveryworldwide at g m a i l Dot c om)and he helped me recover my stolen funds. If you’ve also been a victim, don’t hesitate to get in touch with him. The United States Department of Justice estimates that only 15% of victims of financial fraud report the crime because they are embarrassed, feel guilty or think nothing can be done. There are millions of victims of financial fraud every year .
