my name is john-paul lee and i’m the founder of tavalon tea (www.tavalon.com).   i left the corporate rat-race about 5 years ago to pursue my entrepreneurial dreams and have been living the dream since…

i’ve never been diligent about keeping a diary but i think it is about time so i finally decided to write a blog.  i’m 31 right now and my memory isn’t getting any clearer so i thought this would be a good way to record my activities and keep my close ones updated.  my life is and has been for the past 5 years consumed by my business so most of my postings will reflect this…  my mentor once told me that “the closest a man ever gets to experiencing motherhood is when he starts up his own business.”  i truly subscribe to this theory and you’ll definitely be hearing a ton about my baby.  will try my best to post often and keep the postings interesting but no promises…  see you around.
