It was September of 1979 and my chef husband Billy and I had just returned from spending the last 6 months eating and drinking our way around Europe. Between the two of us we had $104 left in our savings and we wanted to purchase a restaurant in the central coastal town of Santa Cruz, California.
We were two kids with big dreams and no money, but we had guts, determination and the willingness to work hard.
By November of this same year we had worked out a no-money-down idea where we had basically promised away our future earnings to pay for the down payment on a small existing neighborhood business a quarter mile from the ocean. We took over this business December 18, 1979.
That was 32 years ago today.
We are still two kids with big dreams and we are sharing this short story with you to show you how dreams motivate action.
Without the dream and the willingness to commit to it you can wander around aimlessly forever.

What’s holding you back from pursuing your dream? Fear? Lack of commitment? The need for a guarantee?
If you really want something to happen in your life you must move towards it with all that you have inside of yourself. Don’t waver. Discard distractions.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. – Henry David Thoreau
