  • Business Plan

    1) Obtain lobster boat 2) Restore to get on water 3) Lobster 4) Use monies generated to put back into business and contribute to scholarship fund 5) Versus paying employees I will be working for free in addition to my FT job as a nurse. Those helping will be volunteers and students eligible for the scholarship fund. Their time spent helping will serve as an apprenticeship- a healthy outlet, a way to give back towards an important cause. As the business profits more, I would like to open a small ocean to restaurant/lobster shack in Portland. For example, there is a spot on the East End currently on Munjoy hill that would be perfect. Grab and go...down to the Promenade. There is nothing like it right now in area. It could be year round...all food lobster and seafood related...It would serve as but another learning tool about work and business. A healthy outlet for high school and college kids to participate in. I am looking to obtain a lobster boat in honor of my late nephew, Dominic who loved all things about the ocean and being on the sea. He passed away unexpectedly last month at the young age of 23. He was a high school and college athlete, business major, and one heck of a hard worker-always using his hands having worked for Casco Bay Lines amongst other local businesses. He loved life and all people from all walks of life. He was a giver. He was the first to reach out his hand to and include the underdogs, first to help the struggling and also the less fortunate. Once able to obtain a boat and do the necessary upkeep to get the boat on the water I plan to lobster on my days off. Any earnings would be put towards a college scholarship fund for young men and women athletes that have a desire to pursue college and that may be struggling to navigate these times in varied regards. My hope is that it would also serve as a healthy outlet for high school and college aged kids-young adults to volunteer their time and allow them to give back to an important cause. If any or all of this was to come to fruition, I would use the monies to keep the scholarship going, allow it to serve as an apprenticeship and also open a small ocean to table restaurant or shack and again use the monies to keep it all going. My mission is heart driven and in honor of my nephew. It is a way to give back to the community. It is a way to help students navigate these troubled times. The business, apprenticeship and scholarship would be means to allow young adults to pursue college or a trade school. It would serve as a healthy outlet and environment. A place to feel included and part of a team. It would serve as an important cause; means to give back to others and our community via togetherness...healthily.
