How to Post your Resume to Your FohBoh Profile

Posted on March 8, 2009 at 12:21pm 2 Comments

These are challenging times for sure. Job loss has created a new awareness of and appreciation for networking, online and off. Creating a professional profile on FohBoh that reflects you, your experiences and your interests is a good idea. Not only will others in this industry find you, they can also download your resume.

Step 1. Make a PDF copy of your resume. While a .doc will work, a graphic cannot be edited and is easier to email.

Step 2. Go to your My Page on FohBoh… Continue

Open for Business...Finally!

Posted on March 9, 2008 at 11:40am 7 Comments

Thanks to all FohBoh members that have helped me figure all this stuff out. While I have been in the business for a while as a FOH server and 'tender, being an entrepreneur is new. My friend who is a government employee refers to entrepreneurs as "I-trip-in-manure" glory I say.

Opening your first restaurant is really special. There is a s***-load of responsibility when your ass is on the line and I guess this is exactly why my… Continue

I just have to tell all fohboh members how amazing it feels to to be able to ask a question of strangers and get excellent advice. It comes without judgement, without cost and is actually based on real world experience, and is so typical of this amazing industry...we help each other.

I have new friends, fans and advisors now that are from a dozen different countries.

Thanks so much fohboh for making this a restaurant "people" network.


Buying Used

Posted on January 13, 2008 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

I have successfully migrated from being a server to being an entrepreneur...a little scary. A partner and I have purchased a small 2,500 lease near the water, so seafood and tourists are a natural. The former restaurant and pub owner passed away so we were able to solve their family's problem while making it a reality for us.

The kitchen is a mess though and needs repair, new equipment, a larger hood and new flooring tile. The bar is in pretty good shape though.

Here's my… Continue

I wanted to personally invite you to join our discussions in regards to cheeses at the Cheese Group on FohBoh. Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us. We could use someone like yourself who could give us some good, positive feedback.

Hi Surfer Girl!,

I've just launched a new website called where the idea is to try as many different types of food from around the world in your local area and I was wondering whether you'd go and have a look, see what you think and perhaps give me some feedback. And if you like it, I'd really appreciate it if you'd start adding a few restaurants that you know of in your area.

Thanks so much

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.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

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?
