Why I "Eat More Chikin"

I often ask myself, why are you obsessed with Chick-Fil-A? Maybe it’s their waffle fries, or tasty breakfast options? Maybe the incredible customer service is to blame. Maybe it’s that the nearest location to me is hours away, and we all know absence makes the heart grow fonder. In the end I tend to blame it on the Polynesian sauce.   …

Evolving Social Media Management Services

Social media is a force of change that is evolving how we work in the marketing suite. When I founded FohBoh 40 months ago as a restaurant social network, social media was a foreign language. Now, it is almost a language in it of itself with "experts and everything.” As with any profession, there are those more skilled than others, disparate philosophies, even early best practices based on varying levels of experience. I don’t believe any one possesses the dominant view,…

Do Social Media Experts Exist?

More and more I am seeing articles, blogs, webinars, etc talking about the “social media expert”. This title has become one of my biggest pet peeves. Before I read or watch any of these I always seem to have the same initial overwhelming reaction. To me, social media experts don’t exist. You may be thinking, why would someone who lives and breathes social media and executes social media campaigns for several restaurant clients say something like this? Allow me to explain.

What's Up for 2011? Social Integration

2010 was a very interesting year for restaurants and restaurant social media. That means it was a pretty amazing year for us here at FohBoh. Why? Because it’s just starting to gel and we can see investment starting to take place. As a start-up, it’s always a good thing to be ahead of the curve. Be the “first mover”, as they say, but not too far ahead. There are also many advantages to being “second mover”. I’ve written about this before citing Google, Oracle,…

Perspectives on the New Conversation Economy

This is an incredibly interesting concept: an economy fueled by dialog, by the crowd, via the Internet. We are using social networking platforms as the communications channel of choice. It's an amazing shift in human behavior that is real-time, all the time.


Now that nearly 82% of us are using some form of social network to interact, there is an opportunity to reflect on this and gain some perspective. In other works, why you should care.


First,…

Business Anniversaries

Interesting things, these anniversaries. We celebrate personal and family anniversaries and of course, the wedding anniversary. Some work anniversaries are important to track too, like the first, fifth, tenth, twenty-fifth and the one most people look forward to, the retirement anniversary - 30 years.



We celebrated our first year in business in 2008 and many within the FohBoh community, celebrated with us. We announced our second but no one seemed to care but us. I guess that's just… Continue

Rounding it Up



Two of my passions in life are the industry in which I work and giving back to my community. I'm even more excited when I get to combine the two. Throughout my years at FohBoh I have had some tremendous opportunities to work with some amazing organizations that raise money and give back to their communities and to those less fortunate. The restaurant industry has a unique opportunity to accelerate this effort in a good economy or a bad because lets face it, we all dine…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

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. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
