November 9 2009 Personal Chef Newsletter

Hey Chefs & Food Enthusiasts!

Since we last talked my wife and I have been finishing up our settle in our new place. It seems like the longest move in history! We've been in and out of town [as a matter of fact, as I write this, we're getting packed to head out of state again]. This time I'm meeting with my team to lay down some basic no frills footage for our cooking basics demos for PC TV. I'm real excited about it, not because I think it's going to be the next television Emmy Award winner, but because I am finally going to be able to see another part of my dream realized, to be able to reach and teach many people at once.

This is AWESOME!!! and I'm talking ALL CAPS HERE!!!


Quick Recap:

-My apologies to all who have written me with specific questions. I haven't been able to respond personally like usual in a while. Things have been in a bit crazy with all the happenings around here, but please continue to write and ask questions. If I can't get back to you in a personal response, I'll either get to it in an article, forum post or more than likely on podcast or video, so keep'em coming and I WILL address your concerns.

-My thank yous to all of you who sent your condolences on our family member loss. We appreciate all the support, understanding, well-wishes and especially your prayers. It really helped.


Now let's talk food and more ways to boost your Personal Chef business!

-Last newsletter we talked about catering for more to boost your PC business and researching information sites. I hope you got something out of the info.
Let me know if you didn't or if you need more.


-Reduce office clutter by creating digital folders to scan your paperwork into, then discard whatever paperwork you can and neatly file what you must
[like original contracts and official paperwork like that]
and create a binder containing a printout of the lists of what's in your digital folders.

Once you do this, you'll be able to, at a glance, see where your info is without having to reference your computer.
