Moving on up

Posted on June 10, 2008 at 3:46pm 1 Comment

After a nice discussion with my boss, I will be moving into the role of sales and marketing manager of our company. The last year has seen tremendous growth and the current sales manager is also our portfolio director and doesn't have time for both. That means I will where 2 hats. Sales manager and Rep. I just hope we can continue this growth trend.

A month and counting

We have been open just under a month now and the reaction to food, wine, and service has been very positive. We are slowly carving our niche here. We've had people come in to give us a chance that only came once or twice before under the old owners and quit coming because of their previous experiences. They will be back again now which is always a good sign.

Getting There

We finally had a good weekend. Business is definitely picking up and we still have not advertised yet. If the weather would co-operate a little more we will pick up even more.

Last night was a beautiful site. Had a server sell 2 bottles to one table for a total of $400. a 2000 Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer - Tokalon Cabernet and a 2003 Spotteswood Cab. We also had one of the higher ups from Ultimate Distributors come in and bring the owners of Watershed in with her. People are taking notice… Continue

First Full Week

The first full week is now behind us. I finally had a day off and made great use of it by sleeping. Sales have been good considering we have battled the weather and spring break. Hopefull we will turn the corner this week. We have gotten rave reviews on the food, service and wine by all the guests we have had. Less than 5 complaints on food on the 700 people we served the past week. Things are definitely looking up. We are also expecting an AJC review this week which will be published the… Continue

It is 2:40 in the morning and I am waiting on my porter to finish up. This guy cleans all my floors and actually cleans my kitchen. I haven't seen one of these since I lived in New York. Nice to have someone here who takes care of so many of the small details.

I drove by just yesterday. Congrats on the new opening. I wanted to know if you would be interested in working with the Delta Skymiles program to get more exposure. They are our partner and we recommend locations to the members. It's a great traffic driving program with a bit more of an affluent base of people. Let me know if you would like to chat further.

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
