You only lose if you don't put forth your best effort.
I have been cooking for 11 years and love my profession and eveything in it. I also like writing, gardening with tomatoes and herbs and have finally found peace in my life and ready to take on all challenges ahead.

Hi Patrick,
Thanks for the invite! We've started wholesaling our seasonally harvested organic Fair Trade tea to restaurants and cafes. Since the launch of our online store we figured we could make an even bigger difference by furthering the movements of sustainability and social justice if we reached out to the restaurant trade. It's been very rewarding in that respect. One of the restaurants we sell to is The Frisky Oyster nominated as one of the top 100 restaurants in the world by Conde Nast Traveler. They're very innovative. No question about it. I want to invite all the people in the business to start incorporating high quality organic and Fair Trade products into their menus. Make a difference with your groovy mind!

Well I have been working for T&K (franchise of Applebee's) for about 4 1/2 years. I am a bartender and trainer for the company. I have been able to travel a bunch in the past year throughout Arizona training. It is pretty fun. I love meeting new people and I love training. I am also in school, studying business. I want to be in Human Resources. I'd love to become a HR director for a big corporation when I graduate.

So, how about you? What's your story?
