Entrepreneur Tips from Texas Coffee School Founder Tom Vincent
In 2009, Tom Vincent was laid off from his job as a creative director.

He eventually found himself donating plasma and picking up day labor gigs to scrape by.
Tom, a long-time specialty coffee enthusiast, (who by chance got to apprentice several of the most respected minds in the entire specialty coffee industry for two years) spent his last $3.00 to treat himself to a cappuccino.
