I have word the book is coming out in May. This has been quite the project and after over 2 years in the making this is finally going to happen. I believe this is going to be a good read. My goal is to raise $50,000 for Sick Kids Foundation through the sale of this book so stay tuned as the book is about to come out.
As for me I am still working as a waiter doing the best I can. My wife last week had a hysterectomy and my brother has to go through chemotherapy for his colon cancer. My Mom is in a retirement home for her dementia. So there is a lot new but I keep plugging along.
The restaurant industry is still the same. Some good tippers and some bad ones. Busy times and slow times. Nothing ever changes. Just do the best we can and try to make some money.
I haven't been posting much lately. My Mom moved into a retirement home cause she couldn't live on her own anymore and my brother contacted colon cancer. Then my wife has to have an operation in March. So there has been lot's to do lately.
The good news is my Mom is safe and my brother looks like they got all the cancer out today.
Meanwhile I keep going and keep waiting on tables.
A manager must always go out of his or her way to say hello to each of his employees. These are the people on the front line making the manager look good in many ways.
Pump up your wait staff with a hello how are you doing tonight?
Another reason to do so is if you have to correct them on something, you don't want those words to be the first they hear from you since they came to work. They will think the manager has it out for them.
Get the employee more open to listen after they have been warmly greeted. Everyone likes the attention when they come to work.
