“It is better to lose your pride with someone you love
rather than to lose that someone you love with your useless pride.”
Okay, I am kissing what is left of my pride goodbye. I need your help. Just TYPING those 4 words creates some sort of tight throated, verge of tears, horrible uncomfortableness deep inside me. Asking for help has always been a challenge. Over the course of the past year I’ve acquired a serious business education but also learned a lot about myself. For instance, when I cling to my pride I become stubborn, autocratic, and selfish. And when I fail, I hide.
So here it is, Wannawaf in Boothbay harbor is going to go out of business because of my mistakes in Portland. I bled our consistently profitable Boothbay store in order keep Portland going a little bit longer, and as a result I do not have the capital to reopen this year. I realize that if I just quietly disappear and let Wannawaf fold, not only would I suffer but there is great possibility that some of you might show up to my house with pitchforks and torches, for not telling you, for not allowing you to help.
After all Wannawaf is built around a community, around our amazing employees, around people that choose to make Boothbay Harbor their special little getaway year after year. It’s not just me and my pride that will suffer if I rollover, but everyone that loves Wannawaf will as well. I am not Wannawaf. YOU are Wannawaf! You spend your money here. You’ve made us a success. You’re why we’re cool! In order to re-open the Boothbay Harbor store this year we need to raise $20,000. I am not looking for charity; I am going to give you something in return a “Waffle On” bracelet. Each “Waffle On” bracelet entitles the wearer to a permanent 10% off discount. Not to mention you’ll look super cool wearing it! Donate to our “Waffle On” fund and share the mother lovin’ heck out of it. We have a shot here, and it would be a shame if I let something as stupid as little pride get in the way of taking it.
Love you guys!! Let’s see what happens…
