It was during a part-time job that Luke O’Boyle realized he loved working in private clubs.
O’Boyle, now the general manager and chief operating officer of the Chevy Chase Club in Maryland, was just a young employee who was shadowing a bartender before afternoon service began. As he watched, the bartender crafted eight cocktails, each different, and placed them at separate locations throughout the empty dining room.
Within minutes, eight members came in and sat down at their drink.
So you’re a chef and you have a food allergy, now what? Does that mean you leave the kitchen? Does that mean you give up cooking? Does that mean you stop making a living?

Running your own business is a risky venture, and it gets even riskier if you don’t have an asset protection plan in place to safeguard your investment and protect you from losing your ability to operate or start over should a serious financial threat arise.

When it comes to the ticketing industry and box office careers, there is more than meets the eye.
According to Maureen Andersen, president and CEO of the International Ticketing Association (INTIX), many people think of a position in the box office as a lackluster job.

While emailing has become a somewhat informal mode of communication, an innocent typo or grammatical error can hurt your reputation and the overall argument you are trying to make.
In my last article, I explored the concept of organizational culture. Regardless of the type of firm, this phenomenon occurs, and is a critical factor in, shaping strategy, outcomes, goals, and missions.
