My mom & dad were not businesspeople, but they sure knew how efficiencies made everything flow. I inherited their love for records, systems & a plan for everything. My bosses were always happy to receive reports from me, neatly done & on time. It served me well in business, but I forgot about the WORK - I was so busy working, I forget to take time for yourself & was never sure my business was profitable.
I have been a teacher, coach, lifeguard, fitness trainer, & office manager. At least once a year, in any of those jobs I heard "Could you wait to cash that paycheck?" Even as a business owner, when it was tight, my partner & I skipped a paycheck so there would be enough to pay the staff. I knew there had to be an better way but change is scary. We accepted "status quo" to "get the job done" because "this is what we do".
Then Superstorm Sandy hit - it changed everything we knew.
Rethink, reassess, regroup & start again.
Why I do this:
I have spent over 30 years in the hospitality and event management industries, which allowed me to work with and for many restauranteurs, caterers, and chefs. They work hard, long hours doing what they love but many of them leave money on the table. Not having time with family, not having enough cash flow and just being exhausted are the complaints I have always heard – together, we can change that.
What I do:
By recognizing, planning and efficiently managing alternative revenue opportunities, I help owners in the food service industry get back to profitability without sacrificing more of their time. I show owners the whats, whos, and whys and most importantly the hows of using revenue streams that compliment their great food and brand.
Who I do it for:
My clients are looking for a way to have more revenue without burdening themselves or their staff with more hours in house. They also want clarity to know where the business is, where it can go as well as getting back some peace of mind for themselves. They are looking for a way to take what they have done, their unique vision & realizing consistent profitability.
What you can expect when you work with me:
We get a true health checkup of your business; we check processes for efficiencies; we get comfortable talking about money. Then we brainstorm solutions, using the foundations of your authentic brand & build a plan for consistent revenue and increased profit for your business through alternative revenue streams.
