Before Austin Bonk operated the coffee bar inside The Bay skatepark in Lincoln, Nebraska, the 31-year-old worked a string of odd jobs. He installed the wiring for trailers and worked in various factories. Now, with an interest in not only brewing coffee but understand the coffee business from soil to serving, Bonk sees his current life as a lesson to young people and his younger self.

Basically, you don't have to know what you want to do for the rest of your life at 18. Since working in coffee, Bonk has discovered a passion for business, management and the agricultural science behind coffee production. Hear more from the Columbus, Nebraska native in the video above.
