The Bartender of My Dreams

I met a man this weekend, and he's a bartender. He had skills. Really good skills.

If my husband were reading this right now, he might be looking at me with a concerned face, but never fear. This bartender was perfect in a completely unromantic way.…

Playing with Toys

It looks like health advocates are going back to old fashioned techniques for combating childhood obesity. The old reward or penalize method is the latest tactic proposed Santa Clara County California for fast food restaurants who offer free toys with kids meals.



The toy ban would only allow restaurants to offer toys in kid’s meals if the meals meet nutritional criteria (less than 485 calories, no more than 35 percent of calories from fat or 10 percent from added sweeteners, or have… Continue

DAWG Talk: Career Track to Happiness

Life, for many people, is about the pursuit of happiness. In fact, the Declaration of Independence is very clear. It states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”



We spend our lives seeking out what brings us joy. Just thinking about certain experiences can bring a sense of comfort and well-being. You know the… Continue

We're just too naive to spend money?

Happy new year everyone. At the beginning of each year we all make resolutions. I would like to recommend one to business owners in all industries. If your response to not investing(spending) money on your company is either you are too slow or too busy, just say the following to salespeople. "I have no idea what I should be doing to keep business coming in the door."

Business will always fluctuate. One day you hear crickets and the next you have no time to think. Look at seasonal… Continue

Let's Play Repeater

It's a game everyone is playing today. Most marketing is a repeat of someone else. What ever happened to originality? Today we all have Twitter and Facebook. Is yours really that much better? The fact is we are all becoming white noise to our target audience. Although it makes sense to keep up with the Jones', it's only a matter of time before they are ahead again. Remember to ask yourself one question. "How do I stand out from the competition?"

2010 could be the year you become the new… Continue

Out of sight... you know the rest.

Chances are you're excuses for not marketing are the same reasons you should be. Whether you are too busy or hurting for business, advertising strategies should always be in progress. Have you ever seen McDonald's or TGI Fridays taking time off from being in the public eye?

There is an old expression I'm sure you're familiar with. "Out of sight out of mind". As soon as a patron leaves your establishment no matter how great you're food, amenities and servers are, you are out of their sight… Continue

How to Make Your Happy Hour Stand Out

First there was Happy Hour which oddly enough lasted for an hour, then there was what I call Irish Happy Hour which is an hour that lasts three hours, usually around 4-7pm Monday to Thursday. But these days, every bar has a happy hour (now banned in Ireland incidentally).



So apart from the usual half off draft beers and $3… Continue

Are happy thoughts key to ending recession?

Maybe Peter Pan had it right - maybe thinking happy thoughts is the key to rising up out of the recession.



Reports this week show that consumer mood has given stocks a boost. According to Chain Leader:



The stock market rose for the first time in a week Tuesday as unexpectedly strong data on consumer confidence sparked optimism that…

Happy First Birthday FohBoh!

Happy 1st Anniversary FohBoh!





It’s always a good to look back and reflect on what your year was like. Some people seem to look toward December 31st as a way to say hello to a new year or say good-bye or even good riddance to last year. I guess it depends on the events that occurred and the goals you had as well as the things you can’t control.



Jack Canfield and Brian Klemmer, among other life coaches, like to say… Continue

Happy Chefs Are the Horse

Happy chefs...what a concept. Actually, it's a concept that the industry, management and ownership should embrace. Happy chefs and happy cooks make a happy FOH. While the takes FOH and BOH to bring it all together, the BOH is the horse. If the horse is not interested in water, you cannot make it drink.



I've been in enough kitchens to witness chaos, organized chaos or not...it's chaos nonetheless. But, a happy line is a good, efficient line… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

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.
