I’m Fay and I’m a restaurateur and grandma.
Have you ever felt free? wow that feeling you get when it’s not mandatory for you to wake at a specific time in the morning, to beat the morning traffic to get to work. How joyful it is to work from home or anywhere that you have access to a laptop or smartphone.
I’ve lived most of my adult life trying to create a successful business.but sometimes it’s challenging to manage business and family.so I’ve came up with a strategy.In order for me to get the freedom I need I’ve trained my employees in all areas so if the chef is a no show, no problem, someone else can easily fits in, if the cashier or any other employee is a no show still no problem.so with that implementation comes freedom for me.so I can now live the life I’ve always wanted and that is to work on the business but not in the business.That freedom allows me to travell take classes online,, meditate and also started my exercise journey..The class that I’m most fond of led me to the rediscovery of the love I have for writing, so I’m here trying to navigate this website and not only to just write but also to share my knowledge, ideas and suggestions and take you on an adventures and add value.to your life.
Happy Father’s Day
I love and miss my dad, I wish he was still alive. However, his memories live on in my heart. I’m celebrating Father’s Day with customers. in Jamaica we don’t usually acknowledge our fathers the same way as we do on Mother’s day, it’s no comparison, the way in which we started planning weeks even months in advance for mom. I love to make our fathers feel appreciated so I always took the time to help and prepare something special for them.
Fit for a king but it’s only for our dads at the restaurant.
