Creative Director at The Print Shoppe. Also - entrepreneur, mentor, designer, and problem solver. I love to help entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs discover their "A-ha!" moment.
Since I graduated high school, I've started 3 businesses and ALWAYS made more money than my peers, despite dropping out of college 3 weeks in. Over a bumpy journey, I've learned a lot about what it takes to build a valuable personal brand - one that resonates and creates true relationships with anyone you meet.
Let me share that knowledge with you and teach you how to build a personal brand that makes people respect you and want to hire you.
Here are two things I might try if I were in your position:
1) One idea might be to partner with a chef and host a "open house". Send the invitations out to owners of other restaurants that are doing well (pitch it as an expansion opportunity), and also commercial real estate agents.
2) Reach out to your local restaurant associations, offering to host an event.
Hope this helps!
