Courtney Hartley and Drew Lovell are working to open Bonus Round, Chicago's first board game cafe. Starting their own business from scratch has been a tumultuous journey but they've learned an enormous amount along the way. Currently they are running pop-up events on the city's north side which are run through Meetup () as they also prepare to launch their Kickstarter campaign in mid-late July.
This week, we have two guests who are working together to open a board game cafe here in Chicago, and we talk about all sorts of stuff ranging from how long progress takes, building a community, prototyping an idea while letting someone else assume the risk, and a lot more.
If you're thinking of making the transition from the 9 to 5 grind, this is a good one for you to listen to.
