I recently completely changed career paths and joined Dairi-O Restaurants as a future owner/operator to help grow and expand an already successful business. The restaurant business is a totally new arena for me and my family. I have always been an entrepreneur but having my own restaurant was not something I ever dreamed of. Having my own business so that I am flexible enough to have more family time is a big part of what drew me to the opportunity but it is not why I do what I do. I really get a great sense of pride when interacting with customers and seeing them enjoy our product and service, but it is not why I do what I do. The analytical detail guy in me loves the intricacies of running and building a business, but it is not why I do what I do. I love teaching and coaching team members so they grow and learn both personally and professionally, but it is not why I do what I do.
Ultimately I do what I do because I believe in the Bible and Proverbs 16:3 "Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established." I have been blessed beyond measure and been able to do some amazing things in my life so far. All along the way I took each opportunity whether it was school, sports, or work and did it to my fullest because that is what God calls us to do. I am truly enjoying each aspect of my new "work" and am excited to see great things unfold in the future.
