What's Your Tea?

Let me tell you a story about when I used to work at Hyatt Hotels in 1981 and got promoted. I was in a manager meeting with Jim Beard my food and beverage director and he told us we had to drive sales or increase margin. We couldn’t just sit back and relax because the hotel was busy. We had to be proactive. We couldn’t wait around for things to happen, we needed to make it happen.

I went to work that day and pondered everything I could do. I thought, “I could give out flyers around the hotel like I did when I was younger under the train station at Kings Highway to get more people to get their haircut on slow days for my mom’s hair salon.” I could even walk around the neighborhood, which at the time was Inner Harbor Baltimore, and introduce myself to people in the area and invite them to have lunch.

I still remember on that day I had a sore throat so I thought I would take it easy and have some tea and think about the situation. When the server gave me the tea, I started wondering about margin and asked what the highest margin item in this restaurant was – the item they make the most money on. I figured if I wanted to improve the margin at my job, I needed to observe how others did so. If I sold hot tea for breakfast and iced tea for lunch to as many people as I could, I could increase the profit. I would even walk around with the refills in a cool pitcher. Tea has little waste and is easy to make and serve. Tea is actually the #1 highest margin item a restaurant could sell.

Sure enough, the margin zoomed and profit in my coffee shop was improving. I did what Jim Beard asked me to do, which was to make something happen. It’s all about the road to progress, happiness, and a big, fat promotion for me.

Mariano Rivera found his tea – the cutter and he threw that pitch over and over, eventually becoming the greatest closer ever. McDonald’s has their Big Mac, Nathan’s has their hot dog, Soul Cycle has a simple bike in a small room with loud music. Ask yourself this, are you thinking about what’s next? You don’t always have to invent something; sometimes improving the thing you do best can be a game changer.

Anyways, what’s your tea? What item is your best and are you making that item better? More profitable? Are you selling that item to as many people as you can?

  • FUNDS RECOVERY WITH EXNER PRO HACKER (EPH)

    I am sure most of us had a significantly hard year on 2020. A year where most cryptos were becoming the new deal in the markets. Most people if not all were rushing into its investment. Hardly did I know that this was a slopy road as well. Crypto scam was not a well-known global thing until later in the 2021 and 2022. Losing $300,000 was amongst my most traumatic experiences. With a touch on the phone, it was all gone. The investor escaped into thin air. I met Exner Pro Hacker later on in 2023 November. Quite frankly, I knew there would be no way on earth I was going to get my money back. Either way, these guys promised a thorough sweep into the case. Fast forward, they managed to recover $250,000 as the rest had been used. I could not be more grateful. That amount was more than okay with me. Don’t entirely give up on your lost crypto or funds without consulting with Exner Pro Hacker. Reach them on their email, Exnerprohacker@protonmail.com. I wish you well.

    Hello everyone, I wish to share this information with the public . It’s advisable not to trade with an individual or a bitcoin investment platform if you are not sure about their reputation. A few months back, I was seeking an investment opportunity but I ended up being scammed of $187,000 in Bitcoins.
    I was depressed and disappointed in myself until an article popped up about Captain WebGenesis, a cryptocurrency recovery company that helps scam victims get back their lost or stolen Crypto, and to my surprise, they were able to recover almost all the funds I had lost. I’m sharing this out of excitement as I know there are many people out there who must have had an encounter with these swindlers.
