It's hard to lead looking back
My first paying restaurant gig was back in 1981, as a waiter and cook for a hotel restaurant. That job later turned into a job a KBob's. Got my first taste of management there, while still in high school. Worked in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and radio stations through college. Managed a mom and pop Italian American restaurant from 1990-1993, bounced around for a year. Started working for my current employer back in 1994. Been there ever since! I was born in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and grew up in Marshall, Texas.

Babe's is the absolute BOMB! ! ! Best fried chicken hands down in the DFW Metroplex. The Roanoke location is still the best. The perfect example of keeping it simple and serving a great product.

Well my company is a franchise of Applebee's and the buy out didn't affect our company. However, we do stick to the basics of corporate. We try to make the majority of everything unique. The best thing from our company right now is our new and improved Perfect Beers. Only 10 of our store serve the Perfect Beer currently. We are rolling the next batch out in April. It is very exciting!

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy.
