Lets celebrate our high school graduates but also prepare them for this next level of independence.

When I went to college I carried tips, words of advice and caution with me. Anything can happen to anyone, but I'm grateful for the preparation. Its helped to guide my decisions.

If you are a graduate or know a graduate gift them this book. Its a very small investment that could pay off large dividends.
Thanks

Coffee Herstory

Urban Grind was morphed from an idea owner, Cassandra Ingram, had while living in New York and experiencing the coffee houses in the city. She felt they were gathering places for people in the neighborhood, great places to camp out on a Sunday and read The Times, were cool places with a vibe to hear original music, played by locals who toted their guitars, or just cozy places to sit on the patio and watch the world go by. These coffeeshops often became refuge in the city, an alternative to going out, and a place away from home. Returning to Atlanta with a desire to start her own business, she didn't see any coffee houses like the ones in New York, so she started her own. Over the last twelve years it is her hope that she has created a coffee shop that the neighborhood will call their own, and visit when they need an escape from their Grind.
