Espresso Yourself: Building a Business That Matters

In this episode of BOLD CONSCIOUS CONNECTIONS, I sat dow with Josh Cooke, the owner of Corner Perk, a coffee company. He shares his journey from youth ministry to entrepreneurship.

He discusses the challenges and rewards of running a business and the importance of family and community.

Josh emphasizes the need to be authentic, persistent, and open to new ideas as an entrepreneur. He also offers advice for those considering leaving a stable job to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.

Josh’s story inspires others to chase their passions and make a positive impact in their communities.

Such wonderful Insights, as:

Transitioning from one career to another requires persistence and a willingness to learn and adapt.

Building a successful business involves creating a sense of community and providing a unique experience for customers.

Balancing work and family is crucial for personal growth and long-term success.

Being a solution-oriented entrepreneur means constantly seeking ways to improve and meet the needs of customers.

Leaving a stable job to pursue entrepreneurship requires careful planning, a willingness to take risks, and a focus on customer needs.

Listen to this really inspiring conversation about love, family and freedom, as well as community and unity consciousness.


Josh Cooke is a man of many ideas, and crazy enough to chase them down. Born and raised in the SC lowcountry, He loves the river, all manner of seafood, bbq, boiled peanuts, his lovely wife of almost 20 years, his 2 middle school daughters  and of course really good coffee, not necessarily in that particular order.

After finishing Seminary in Atlanta and moving back to Bluffton in 2008, he and his wife Kali created Corner Perk, a coffee shop turned breakfast and lunch restaurant that sources and roasts their own amazing coffees.

As if one awesome community hub wasn’t enough He’s led a wonderful team of talented baristas, managers, and cooks to open 2 additional locations in the area with plans to further expand.
