I hope that all of you had a safe, fun celebration, enjoying time with your loved ones over the holidays!  But more importantly, I pray that 2015 is your Best Year Ever-in every way possible!

2014 was a fantastic year and a great start for Soupfly-and now we plan to knock it up-not just a notch-but many, many notches!  I hope that each of you welcomed in the New Year with goals and dreams for yourself personally and professionally.  The great thing about a New Year is-that it’s a New Year.  I know it sounds simple and it is.  What’s great about it is that we get to start a fresh, start anew.  You can make 2015 whatever you want it to be.

NO RESOLUTIONS

I don’t make resolutions.  I stopped making them years ago.  That might be surprising to some of you.  You might be saying-“Doesn’t everyone make resolutions?”  Yes, it’s true that people all over the world make resolutions each New Year’s Eve-“I’m going to lose weight.”  “I’m going to be nicer to people.”  “I’m going to go on a vacation.”  “I’m going to spend more time with my kids.”  “I’m going to eat more soup.”  Whatever it might be.  The problem is that everybody makes resolutions when  the excitement and emotion of the New Year is upon us, but within a couple weeks or a few months at most, the business of life takes over and excuses arise and the resolutions are soon forgotten or at least put on the back burner.  My suggestion-skip the resolutions.

Instead of resolutions-I set goals.  I set goals and then I create action plans with specific steps to do so I can accomplish those goals.  Am I saying that I always accomplish all my goals?  No, but I’m getting much better at it.

Soupfly’s Goals for 2015

Currently, Soupfly has readers from over 50 countries!  I am so happy and grateful for all  my readers. One goal I have for 2015 is to increase the number of countries of our readers  to 100!  Also, we intend to increase our number of Followers to at least 1000!  That is no small feat-as most of our readers are not yet Followers-you can help us by hitting the Follow button below.  By following, you will receive an email each time a fresh serving of Soupfly is served.

Another goal I have is to post more often less lengthy posts.  I know you are all busy and I want you to be excited each time there is a new post.  So, with that in mind-I’ll be posting twice a week and my goal is to keep each post under 1000 words.  Yay!

In fact, in 2014 I accomplished more goals, both personally and professionally, than any other year in a long, time.  I recommend that you think about  areas of your life that you want to effect improvement in, and instead of resolutions-set goals.  There is a much greater chance of you accomplishing your goals if you write them down rather than just keeping them in your head.  Mark Victor Hansen who is the co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, says to “Think it and ink it.”  Somehow I don’t think he’s referring to getting a tattoo.  He also says,  “What you think about, you bring about.”

imagesabout-being-consistent

A lot of people say-I don’t need to write my goals down.  I know what they are.  You may know what they are but until you put it down on paper it’s just  a wish, a hope.  Once you have your goals written down-you can then begin to formulate specific action steps that over time, if you follow them, will lead to you successfully accomplishing your goals.

Wherever you are in your life, your career, your business, your personal development, my desire for you is that this year becomes the year that all your dreams, plans and goals are accomplished and come true!

I want to recommend a great book for you, Joel Osteen’s You Can, You Will-the title says it all. Start your year with the right encouragement and motivation to reach the new heights that you know are possible.

A GRATEFUL REFLECTION ON 2014

Welcome back to Soupfly!

As you are all either getting ready for, or in full swing of, New Years celebrations-(depending on where in the world you live) I wanted to take a few moments-(I’ll try to make it short) to offer my reflection through the eyes of Soupfly, on the year that was-2014. Six months ago, Soupfly had not even been born yet.  After much planning, contemplating and telling myself and others that I was going to start a Service and Hospitality focused blog-finally, on July 8 of this year, Soupfly was born! I did it, wrote my first post-When the World Brings You Soup and there’s a Fly in it.  It was very encouraging that, from the beginning, there has been support and an audience for the content that I seek to provide here on Soupfly.  If you’ve not ever read our inaugural post-I invite you to read it here:

https://soupfly.wordpress.com/2014/07/08/when-the-world-brings-you-soup-and-theres-a-fly-in-it/

 

We also started a Facebook page for Soupfly and that first post quickly garnered 49 Facebook Likes and over 100 blog hits in the first 48 hours!   How exciting!  We are just 9 short Likes away from having 200 Soupfly Facebook Likes.  If you are a reader of Soupfly-I invite you to help us with this goal and Like our Soupfly Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/SoupFly/1438615929733655?ref=bookmarks

I am so grateful for the following of Soupfly that has grown in less than 6 months, to readers from nearly 60 Countries!! That is mind-blowing and very humbling to me.  Thank you all who read and share my blog.  I hope that you are gaining value from what I bring to you.  My original and main focus has always been to cater to and serve people working in the Service and Hospitality industry-no matter where you work or what position you hold.   I also know that I have many, many readers, who do not work in the Service and Hospitality industry-however, the principles, ideas and concepts that Soupfly has to offer, are applicable to most any work environment-whether one is dealing with, serving, or selling to guests, customers, clients, patrons or even employees.  My intention and desire is to motivate, encourage and inspire you to provide the very best service possible to those people that you serve.  At the same time I want to provide practical principles that you can use in your work place to up your game.

With that in mind, many of you know that I have been working on my book,

Over this past year, I have been privileged to meet some wonderful Service and Hospitality professionals.  We have traveled to and met people in Santa Barbara, California; Loveland and Denver, Colorado; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Minneapolis, Minnesota; St. Louis, Missouri; Kansas City, Missouri and of course in our home area of Las Vegas.  It is a joy to meet Service Professionals that truly have a passion for service and the business.  We have also met and been served by individuals who may need a little more guidance and instruction on how to truly provide exceptional/WOW! service.

Earlier this year, I started my company-ASPIRE Enterprises, a Service and Hospitality focused, consulting and training company.  The company name-ASPIRE is actually an acronym for: Advancing Service Performance, Inspiring Restaurant Excellence.  It is my intention to serve the industry on a greater scale this year, through my book, Getting to WOW! Everybody WINS with 5 Star Service, providing training seminars, consulting and speaking at Food Service and Hospitality Conventions around the country.  This is a fantastic industry to be a part of and just like any industry-continual training and on-going education is a foundational key to success.

 

 

2014 has been a fantastic year-a year of many new beginnings. I am truly grateful to all of you have been a part of it in someway.  You are blessed, loved and very special to me.  Thank you.
