Tips for Kurtis Moffett:
Take a year to save some money, and/or find an investor who likes your ideas so you’ll have sufficient funds to open your business. If you accept money from an investor, take a long, careful look at the agreement you’ll be asked to sign so you understand exactly what you’ll be giving in return for the funds.
Find musical events that will bring large audiences. It’s fun to have a smaller, “cool” venue, but you’ll eventually need to make a profit to keep your doors open, so decide what sort of music (and audience) will support your restaurant.
Have faith in your own ideas and your own ability to succeed. Build a solid business plan and find a mentor to guide your work.
You’ve understood that musicians need to combine different types and sources of income to succeed. Good music is a natural partner of good food. You got a good idea, and I’ll be glad to enjoy the entertainment and nourishment at Casa de Kurtis.
