Episode 85 – How To Brainwash Your Staff



Welcome to The Restaurant Coach Podcast, it is the cure for the common restaurant. So, how’s this year been for you and your restaurant? Good? Great? Does it suck? Or is it incredible? Just know that wherever you are things will change. That’s part of life. You can’t stay the same or you won’t grow, if you don’t grow, you can evolve, and if you don’t evolve, you’re slowly dying. Look at the restaurant brands that are no longer open in your market today and you’ll see the same pattern. Restaurant opens. Restaurant gets busy because they’re new in town. They stop training and growing their people and sure enough they close. It might not be fast and that the sad part. They could just limp along for years before they life support cord is finally pulled. They could have been saved if they had asked for the right help. Instead they got input and ideas from others who were just looking out for them. Why is it that bad advice often disguises itself as good intentions? Now, if your listening to this podcast it means you don’t want that fate of slow death to happen to you. You want to break free from having your restaurant run your life and for that you need people. Not only good people, you need the right people. Once you have the right people on your team it’s time to brain wash them!

Episode 81 – The 12 Bullsh*t Lies You Tell Yourself



Welcome to The Restaurant Coach Podcast. It is the cure for the common restaurant. Make sure to mark you calendar and secure your seat for my annual Restaurant Success Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona this October 25-27th. It’s 3 intense days with 18 workshops and six industry experts that are all committed to you breaking free from average. You can grab a ticket while they are available at www.RestaurantSuccessSummit.com. So, today, I have a treat for you. I’m going to share a chapter from the NEW audio-book edition of Your Restaurant Still Sucks. Yes for a few years now people having been asking me when are your books coming out on audio. Well, the first one is here and available on Audible and iTunes. My second book Your Restaurant Still Sucks in is production and my third book Your Restaurant Culture Sucks and the audio will be out just before Christmas. I want to give you fair warning that I hired a professional narrator…Sean Pratt to read my books for the audio version and there is a few reasons why. Number one: he’s a professional and has recorded 1000’s of book from some big name authors so I was honored that he liked my books and agreed to do them. Number Two: he’s damn good. Wait until you take a listen and you’ll see that he brings a great entertainment angle to the books and I myself have listened to it five times already! And number three: I teach my coaching clients to outsource things that they do in their restaurant to others so they can focus more on working ON their restaurant instead on IN their restaurant. This was a time when I felt that using a professional was a smart move that would allow me to focus more on coaching my clients, working with my Restaurant Masterminds group, and creating new courses for my Restaurant Coach University. I would have been a hypocrite if I didn’t follow my own advice. So without further a due, here is a sample from Your Restaurant Sucks….The 12 Bullshit Lies You Tell Yourself That Hold Your Restaurant Hostage
