If they was one quote that sums up my early years as a DM of Dunkin and as a GM of my current full service restaurant. “I have no idea what I’m doing but I know I’m doing it really well” Andy Dwyer
I will admit here and now. I was not qualified nor prepared for either of those positions at the time I got them.
Luckily, I had the right attitude, work ethic, and a great team that recognized those things who would go one to help me accomplish my goals.
And that’s my advice kids that I meet when they’re first coming up in the industry or going to college. Have the right attitude and be willing to learn on the job. You will never start a new job or career knowing everything. It takes a least 7 years to master a job. And where do you learn all you need to know in 7 years? From the people around you. From the tools provided to you.
