What an honor having Chef Charles Carroll on the show! He is such an inspiration to me, not only because of his incredible accomplishments as a chef and an author, but his enthusiasm for life. As the co-author of “The Recipe,” Charles gave us some fantastic insight into this soon to be released book! Each chapter weaves cooking and life lessons together in such a profound way.
As a chef, Charles is quite familiar with the kind of heart it requires to build a great team and the value of giving your clients, or customers, an enjoyable experience. We can get so caught up in getting our product out there and the routine of life that we forget about our consumers. Buying a home is a process, eating a meal is a process, but both are meant to be enjoyable not routine! It takes discipline to build a great team in any business, but it takes a greater amount of heart, dedication, and passion to keep those people coming back for more.
We have the privilege to give back to people, whether that’s helping them close escrow on their very first home or giving them a meal they can truly taste. It’s a fast pace world, but sometimes we need to slow down, respect the career path we have chosen, and work to improve upon everything we do. You will never know EVERYTHING there is to know in any field of work, but what you don’t know should make you jump out of bed in the morning eager to strive for improvement!
Chef Charles Carroll and John David Mann’s book is so much more than a great book; it is a book that will touch your heart and change your life. Take a listen to this episode with this incredibly accomplished man then go pre-order his book “The Recipe” before it hits the shelves on Oct 17th!
