Lofi Cafe

Half the month has gone by. Reflecting as an entrepreneur, it takes time to complete projects. I just finished a project planning document which took about a month, and am now moving into the recruiting and creative phases.

My focus for the remainder of the month will be to set up the analog cafe space, develop the creative briefs required for promotional material, and research the latest tech applications that can make my metaverse business stand out.

So far, I’ve perceived that the best income stream and production op moving forward will be to pivot the Lofi Cafe into a creative studio.

On the upside, raising the “lofi” flag has signaled to other aspiring lofi producers out there that I’m a friendly stop on the cyberhighways of instagram.

I’m living that no sleep work 24/7 early entrepreneurial lifestyle. Colleagues with my best interests at heart have advised me to get enough rest. I did a lot today yet I still feel like there’s still so much to do.

I finally got the online storefront up. Turns out getting backend infrastructure sorted out was more product design thinking that I’d anticipated, but it’s finally live and the challenge was practical education. Next push to implement will be taking orders at the next pop up event in March. Improving on the Lofi Cafe’s User Experience, I swapped out my artist website hub for a linktr.ee and filed my FBN to ensure more consistent messaging and branding. Next will be developing MushFest as an event and adding physical non-food item products into the store.

But first, sleep.

I’ve been connecting with freelancers all over the Bay Area and we’ve been sharing ideas around design and entrepreneurship. I turned my promo video into a finished creative asset for a collaborator’s business. This weekend will focus on R&D and videography.

Yesterday I approved a basic sticker design onto a holographic foil. The art wasn’t perfect nor refined, but our team needs an insignia. A symbol and expression of identity to coalesce around. So I got a limited first edition run of 50 goom squad #00 ordered.

I also uploaded some photos to my web gallery that had been using stock images. The photos I took are unsatisfactory, but they’re a better placeholder than someone else’s work. I know eventually I’ll get pro images in there, once I develop my skills and hold more Lofi Labs.

The metaverse and cyberpunk concept for this sole proprietorship is starting to come together functionally and aethetically. I may have also found investors — stay tuned.
