What is healthy? It may seem like a silly and simple question, but can you put a number on it? What about a set of numbers? If so, do those numbers apply to me; a 5’3” female? What about to a 6’5” male athlete? When you think about it, healthy is a very subjective term.
When people go out to eat and look for “healthy” options what do they look for? There are so many nutrition messages circulating around stores, restaurants, and the media, it’s hard to tell which… Continue

So, you want to run a hospitality (restaurant – bar – both - other) operation. If you think you had a full plate at last year’s Thanksgiving dinner, wait until you see what they are going to be dumping on your plate now. The following is not a top ten list; in fact, it is a random start to a never… Continue

Think about this – you are going to dinner tonight with five other people – would you rather go to dinner with five negative people or five positive people? Right, unless you are working out some issues the majority of us would pick going to dinner with positive people. Why? Because who wants to sit there listening to five people whine, complain and carry on about how tough life is for them and everyone they know while trying to eat a meal.
Now go one more step, how does that same… Continue

I am just visiting Austin for business and pleasure this weekend and was given the grand tour by good friends and passionate locals. We are all foodies and restaurateurs, so this was a tour of hot spots, up-and-comers, legends and opportunities. My first observation was how strong the indie restaurant market is here. This is a city of one-offs with funky imagination and no fear. It helps when there are buildings with character and Austin sure has one shortage of those. But, really, I am most… Continue

I failed a client yesterday.
I learned a lesson about slowing down.
I learned that social media communities will shape a corporate social media voice.
To remit amends to this, I offer a full and transparent apology."An Apology to the Dessert Professional Community"

Justin and I talk chocolate, healthy chocolate that is. Chocolate is

A year ago, many articles were being written on the complete, and seemingly intractable, seizure in the capital markets. Lenders weren’t lending, and investors weren’t investing, for many reasons, but a central cause was their lack of certainty as to the value of their existing positions. The resulting lack of liquidity exacerbated the problem. (In simple terms, if no… Continue

Everywhere you go there is divisiveness. “They are not like us”, “they” say, one country vs. another, men vs. women, blues vs. reds, old vs. young, rich vs. poor, tech savvy vs. tech newbie, and… front of the house vs. back of the house.…
