Overcoming The Extreme Worries Of Running A Restaurant

An overwhelming majority of restaurants close in the first three years of their opening. In your local town or city, you’ve likely noticed the revolving changes of restaurants in the rental spaces around your area, and as you live there longer, you will notice more and more cropping up.

How Mentorship Has Helped Me

A few years ago, I didn’t think mentorship was of importance. Today, I can attest to how important having a mentor is as I’ve gained immensely from it and can tell you that it’s a lifesaver. Is there one way to find a mentor? The answer is no.
