Most of you know that I create a little milk tea company called Boba Guys. It started out as a popup shop serving out the bar of a ramen restaurant and it didn’t make a lot of money, but it was fun. It’s grown since then. Business has been booming and I’ve been able to hire a few people (there’s 9 of us now and growing!).

Today I’m happy to announce that we are opening a second store in Union Square! Our second store is twice as big as our first store and we’re trying to make an incredible test kitchen/laboratory in the back. The stuff of dreams!

But I need your help. We don’t have any investors and all the money we’ve put into it has been from our own life savings. We know it will work (see store 1) but we don’t have enough cash flow to make it crazy awesome. Our backup plan is to make it medium awesome, but life’s too short for that.

Building this company has been a long time in the making for me. I always thought it would be some whiz-bang get-rich-quick startup I’d build or latch onto, but instead I built Boba Guys. The nights are just as long, but it’s been a rewarding experience meeting so many people who genuinely love what I’m doing here and know how passionate I am about building a company that is worth a damn.

To be totally honest with you, I don’t know how this will all turn out; maybe it will be a bust a few years down the road, maybe sooner. But I wanted to take my shot, and I wanted to do it publicly so that when I’m old I can say that I gave it my best.

So if you have a moment, please take a look at our Kickstarter for Boba Guys Labs. I’ve created some cool rewards too (we never do merch, so now’s your chance!).

How can you help?
A pledge would be nice, but even sharing what we post on our Facebook or posting on your tumblr goes a long way to helping us realize our dreams.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, supporting me, and hey…never forget your beginner’s spirit.
