I'm telling you the truth...

I was blessed and fortunate to have extraordinary mentors in my life, [both men and women]. They gave me virtual wings to fly.

What is the point? Many of us may flutter our wings or spin around in circles because we catch the wind and fly.

Always remember this message...

You can always fly again, even if your wings were broken in the past, just try, one more time.

This time, use your wings of FAITH.

I Believe You Can...!

Upselling means encouraging guests to buy more expensive food or drinks. 🍷🍖💵

Cross-selling means offering guests a complementary item in addition to what they’ve already chosen. 🍗💵

Most restaurant managers or owners expect servers to sell expensive foods and wines.👩🏽🙎🏻‍♂️📈 Servers approach the table and try to upsell a certain dish or wine. This always makes me feel uncomfortable because it doesn’t make sense to push something people don’t want to buy.

I believe that creating a pleasant dining experience should be the main focus. ✨✨ Instead of pressuring guests to spend more, servers should aim to understand their preferences and suggest items they might genuinely enjoy.

This approach builds trust and ensures guests leave happy, which can lead to better tips and repeat visits.

I'm telling you the truth...

Every cat has a strong desire or dream that usually comes true, depending on the circumstances.

That is...

I hope this dog doesn't bit me, not even by accident. Right?

Case and Point: When you want to achieve something different in life, "all you need is a friend."

Sometimes, it may be someone you least expect. Ask for a helping hand.

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.

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.

Although it may appear phony, there is more to it.

As servers and bartenders, we have served a large number of individuals throughout the day and week.

Some restaurant employees choose to divide their job and personal lives.

Some of them have a true name that is difficult to pronounce or unusual. It doesn't feel right when the server tells you their name and then sticks with the pronunciation for 10 minutes.

It does indeed ruin the atmosphere. Also, we serve a diverse range of people, and it is safer for us to protect ourselves from the creeps.
