A Year of Working With my Parents

What a year of working with my parents taught me is the following 3 things: 

  1. There are a lot of doors in the world. Although my parents didn’t attend any form of higher education, the world they know of is vastly different from my own and I think there’s a lot of things they know that I don’t. From the way they interact and do business with others, to how they manage to deal with uncertainty.
  2. Hungry customers are vulnerable customers. I’ve seen people cry, shout, and/or get angry when cooked food takes 15-20 minutes to prepare.
  3. You can be doing the same thing every day for a year and still not know everything. 365 days of serving customers, making tea, and social media later, every day presents something slightly different and new.

There’s a lot more that I’m not able to put down in words just yet, but those will be saved for a different day.
