Lucy, a creative and determined woman, realized her dream of opening a modern café. She spent months preparing for the café's opening day, from designing the interior to training the staff using a detailed manual. The café's opening hours are from 10 am to 8 pm on weekdays and from 9 am to 10 pm on weekends, and Lucy plans to serve a variety of beverages and handouts about the café. She hopes her neighbors will drop by and enjoy the café, and is even offering a special promotion to those who inquire about it. In order to finance her new business, Lucy had to apply for a loan and is now proud of her achievement. She named the café after her relative who passed away from cancer, and hopes to honor their memory. Lucy also had to deal with the cost of renovating the barn that now houses the café, but she remained resistant to any setbacks. She looks forward to serving the public and settling down in her new business for ages to come. Despite a nagging cough, Lucy was determined to keep up with the demands of her new business. She knew that her preparation and hard work would pay off, and she predicted a successful future for the café. In addition to her busy schedule, Lucy had to keep up with her finances and make sure to put away enough money for taxes and other costs. She was forced to deal with some setbacks along the way, but she was always able to figure out a solution. While dealing with the day-to-day operations of the café, Lucy made sure to look after her staff and keep a board with their schedules and assigned duties. She knew that happy employees would result in happy customers. Despite the long hours, Lucy found the work rewarding and felt proud of what she had achieved.
