Some bartenders and servers would rather go by a nickname than their full name. There is more to it, even though it could seem fake.

We have served a lot of people during the day and week in our roles as servers and bartenders. Some restaurant workers decide to keep their personal and professional life apart.

Some of them have odd or hard-to-pronounce actual names. When the server tells you their name and then continues to pronounce it that way for ten minutes, it doesn't feel right. Yes, it affects the atmosphere.

Additionally, it is safer for us to defend ourselves against the creeps because we serve a varied range of people.

Please let us know whether you prefer to use a nickname or your new name.

Listen carefully...

There are many tracks in life however
many people seem to miss a few along the way.

Don't let this happen to YOU.

For example you have the...

  • Indy 500 Race Track
  • Tripple Crown Race Track
  • Michelin Raceway Race Track
  • Amtrak Cascades Railroad Track
  • Daytona International Speedway Track

Each track is designed to assist you on the road of life. Right?

If someone else's track don't fit your needs, customize your own track and follow your dreams.

I Believe You Can...!

Doubles & Triples Test

Here’s a YouTube video that will help you study for the “Doubles & Triples” endorsement. 📝

California doesn’t allow for triples to be hauled, but places like Arizona and Texas do allow it. I recommend checking with your state laws. ✅

When I first got my Doubles & Triples endorsement, I thought I would never haul Doubles, but here I am 2 years later hauling Doubles. I must say it’s a lot easier to haul doubles then it is a 40ft trailer. With doubles you don’t need to make such wide turns like you would a 40ft, 45ft, or 53 footer. 🚛

I recommend just getting all your endorsements even if you convince yourself you don’t want to haul any of the endorsements. You never know when a great opportunity might fall into your lap that requires these endorsements. Better to have them ahead of time and be flexible for the next opportunity. ✅

Any questions or concerns feel free to drop a comment. ⤵️

When summer arrives, patio season begins, attracting many patrons who enjoy sitting outside. This can lead to faster table turnover, resulting in more tips.

While working outside in hot weather can be challenging, summer is a peak time for earning money, especially for restaurants with patios. The biggest advantage is the increased table rotation as people love to sit outside in nice weather.

The main disadvantage is working under the sun and in the heat. Restaurant workers spend 6-8 hours on their feet, engaging in a lot of physical activity, which can be strenuous in hot weather.

On the plus side, you benefit from a comfortable, climate-controlled environment, protected from the sun and heat, which can reduce the physical strain of long shifts. However, there are also downsides. With many patrons preferring to sit outside, you might experience fewer table turnovers, resulting in lower tips compared to patio service.

Which one would you prefer if you worked in a restaurant?

Listen carefully...

A strong minded person with a heart to win won't quit or say "throw in the towel" hey, I'm done.

Family members may seem tired of the things you've done in the past. However, you still have a family support unit.

If you've messed up in recent years gone-by, put those things behind you and get ready for a new future.

Start...

  1. Speaking power over your life.
  2. Taking one, two and three steps in a new direction.
  3. Opening your eyes for new opportunities.
  4. Developing a positive can-do attitude.

Whatever you do, just don't throw in the towel. The best is yet to come.

I Believe You Can...!

Listen carefully..

Whatever you say goes up and once developed, comes back down and multipled back to you with favor.

That's why it's so important to..."Let your yes mean yes" and everything else will fall-in-place.
