Restaurant hosting and more

The first person the guest sees is the host. If the host is a ding-dong or the restaurant doesn’t put effort in to seating and making sense, the guest will feel it.

Why try to be a better waitress or waiter?

Integrity

In every organization there are two types of people: those who wait for someone else to provide a solution and those who take responsibility for finding it. It is only by the grace of the second type that organizations are able to operate effectively.

The the one who has integrity.

Money

The better you are at ANYTHING, the more money you will make. That’s just how it works and waiting tables is no different.

If you are not making AT LEAST $20 per hour, then it’s time to find another restaurant job.

The better you are the more money you are worth.

Feels good

You have all god damn day to be important out in the world. Take this as an opportunity to provide the same for someone else.

It really does feel good to treat people so good that they throw you money and give you hugs and smiles.

Living consciously

Look around. The world is filling up with zombies. You probably work with a few: lazy, complainers, want to go home, every mistake isn’t their fault, blah, blah, boring, blah.

It feels good to be present, be good at what you are doing and engage with people.

Everyone is looking for their “purpose” and it’s typically while they are assholes to those around them. How’s this for an idea: your purpose it to touch people’s lives; there is no better place to do so than over a good meal.
