  1. 354: Giving up everything for your restaurant with Matt and Emily Hyland
    From this interview, I know that the most important thing for owner to begin his or her business is passion. You should know what can really raise you up and what you are interested in. After that, you can be most willing to sacrifice your time, your energy, your passion or whatever. Only in this way can you be eager to come up many more ideas to make it better and well-known. Like the interviewee Matt said, ” I love pizza and I want to make pizza”. That’s his own passion and it can be regarded as the foundation of his business.
    And then, the support that comes from family or friends is the second key factor for their success. Without those supports, I think they may lack the motivation to run the business. It is the support that make them more motivated and energetic. Also, the good partnership with the ones who you know very well is another factor for their success. They compared the partnership to marriage because both of these require compromise and a lot of work. I think this comparison is amazing. It is exactly correct. You won’t marry someone whom you are not familiar with. Similarly, you can’t cooperate with someone whom you don’t know very well because it is risky for your whole business.
    Besides, you are bond to face a lot of challenges. Never mind and just keep thinking and never stop trying. Like this way can you be more creative and successful. Like Emily said, no matter how good it is, everything could be better. You can’t stop although challenges come out or your business becomes better and better everything. All you should do is keep going to make it better and better.
    One last thing for their success is that they know the mutual trust between leaders and staff is very necessary. If the leader doesn’t trust the staff, they won’t be willing to create more profits or do whatever they can do for the leader because they will think it is in vain for them to do that. If you hire somebody, just let them do the things to show your trust for them. After that, they will regard your business as their business and keep the brand culture or value in their mind. It will show the greatest teamwork power.
