In addition, Time4Coffee’s mission also includes providing young people with the information and inspiration they need to help them achieve and maintain good health, self-care and all around wellness. Because what good is it to get the job you want, if your physical and/or mental health ends sucks? And stress isn’t unique to people in the working world. Students, of all ages, feel incredible pressure to do well in school, as they position themselves to achieve high grades and one day, get into the college or university of their choice, and eventually the career they want. This is why Time4Coffee’s mission includes a 360º focus on helping young people develop the skills they need to build a healthy, happy and truly fulfilled and balanced life.
During her 30+ years as a working professional in journalism, public affairs, public relations and the non-profit worlds, Andrea Koppel routinely provided free advice, over countless cups of coffee, to scores of younger and older people trying to build their careers. She sincerely hopes Time4Coffee will be able to replicate, at scale, what she and so many others do every day but on a one-on-one basis, to help thousands of aspiring Gen Z, iGen and Millennial professionals achieve their wildest dreams!!!!!!
Most recently, in June 2017, Andrea listened to her heart and quit her job at Mercy Corps in order to become a stay-at-home mom. After traveling the world, she wanted to invest in deepening her relationship with her then 13-year old son before he decided she was just a figment of his overactive teenage imagination and refused to admit they are actually related. Now Andrea and her husband are taking advantage of their time together to travel the world, as a family, and took a trip to Morocco in the spring of 2018 (and yes, those are real goats in that argon tree!). In fact, it was while Andrea was at home being a mom and cooking, cleaning toilets, vacuuming and scrubbing the kitchen floor, and still meeting up with young people over cups of coffee, that she conceived of Time4Coffee as a way to help many more college students, and aspiring young professionals build successful, healthy, and happy lives!
