People often ask where her inspiration for these "Ground Rules" for Life came from... Julie knew from an early age that coffee was far more than just a drink to her. At 3-years old, she started drinking coffee and dunking sugar cookies with her Grandma on the farm (despite others saying that 'coffee would stunt her growth!'). Since then, she has never missed a day without coffee. Julie still loves to take coffee breaks, visit coffee shops, bake and sample sweets to accompany her coffee habit. She found a creative way to blend her love for coffee and her passion for living life to the fullest. Through the Inspirational Coffee Club® brand, Julie shares one-of-a-kind strategies (what she calls 'Ground Rules') that teach others how to pour their hearts into a life that overflows with fulfillment. Julie's Ground Rules for Life© are a reflection of her own journey along with the wisdom and knowledge of other personal growth experts she's received over the years. Julie is a fun-loving, inspiring coffee-lover with a passion for teaching others how to get every last drop out of each and every day.
