Eating something with someone is the second most sensual and intimate thing you can do in life. The experience can't just be about consumption.
In the worst of our recession, bars were making money. Every bar can make money. If they're failing, it's not because of the president or Congress or Ukraine. It's because of them. And if you own failure, then you'll own success.
The simple things can be really powerful.
The right personality with a weak resume can be filled in. That's the employee who will become great.
The wrong personality with the greatest resume in a business will not grow that business.
I'm the type of employer who will hire based on personality, based on potential. If you put the resume before the personality, you're going to fail.
