Business Profile: The Posthouse

Can you describe your business?

A social hub with a little something for every one.

Why did you start your own business?

To run a coffee house style business with second hand books and a history section, has been a dream of mine for some time. When the village post office moved into the local Spar shop, the opportunity opened to take action on my dream and make use of the old post office building.

What are the best things about running your own business?

A feeling of personal accomplishment in turning your dream into a reality. Seeing your friends, neighbours and community using and enjoying the Posthouse the way you hoped. What are the main challenges facing the business? The paper work, learning how to fill in forms and meeting the necessary legal requirements. Being patient and not trying to do too much to soon.

What advice would you give to someone starting a business?

The same advice that was given to me, “Follow your guts and keep it simple.”

Can you describe your experience of running a business in three words or less?

Love my village.
