It is just time.
After 5.5 years of wondering what it would be like to launch my own business here I am.
After 5.5 years of so many different variables holding me back and others that push me forward I was finally able to filter through it all and step into my calling as an entrepreneur and as the Owner of Half A Dozen Hospitality Inc.
I’ve been lucky enough to, over the past 5.5 years, keep a very close eye on this industry and every day, every meeting, every single encounter I’ve been taking data points and collecting very valuable information. I am excited to take all of that free information and turn it into my business as a Restaurant & Hospitality Consultant.
I am extremely excited to work in this ever-changing, extremely demanding, and supremely dynamic industry. I am excited to work in this space in the capacity of a consultant as it affords me the opportunity to work with a diverse collection of clients and again use all of that data I collected in making my clients business stronger.
Here’s to every single person that has had a hand in creating this giant leap for me. Those of you that have at times believed in me more than I may have even believed in myself. They say “surround yourself with good people” right? Well I’ve been blessed as I am surrounded by awesome people, people who challenge me and make me a much better person.
I also want to thank everyone that has said “don’t do it.”, “you’re crazy”, “not now, it’s just not the right time.” to all of you I saw thank you as well. I say it sincerely without any sarcasm, as I am sure you were just looking out for me what you believed were my best interests. However, I cannot not do this. I can no longer wonder the amount of positive impact I could make on this space if I just got out of my own way. And now I no longer have to wonder if I have something to offer my colleagues in the Food & Beverage industry because I now know the answer is unequivocally YES.
A confident “YES”.
I look forward to working with all of my future clients and creating a positive impact for each and every one of them. However for a moment, just for a brief moment I am going to sit here after I stroke my last key here on this post and revel in this.
Revel in the fact that I am here. I’ve done it. I have taken the leap and it feels more right than most things I have ever done in my entire life.
So to those of you who are out there with doubts about your dreams and aspirations I say to you all, find a way. Just find a way to make those doubts in your mind nothing more than laughable fading moments in your day. Because trust me, if I can do this. So can you.
Jump right in.
