Profit & Loss

Blue Lotus Cafe

07/29/20 • 14 min

Not following the food cost and the Profit & Loss is often one of the reasons why many businesses fail, especially restaurants who always struggle to achieve profit. Today Christophe is sharing a simple template to explain what you need to have in your Profit and Loss document and how to split the percentages. We often get occupied by the idea, the feeling and the mission of our business, that we forget, or ignore the numbers. But, they keep growing and at some point it can be too late. Make sure you control the numbers and don't let them play you out of the game.

Recipe Development

Blue Lotus Cafe

07/15/20 • 18 min

So many of our students came to us with the same question - "How to create my own recipe?". It seems that it is almost impossible to think of something new and original, but is it even necessary? In today's episode we discuss where to get inspired and how to make it your own. We also encourage you to break out of the known conventions when it comes to servings, plates, presentations... Plant-based cuisine is an opportunity to create new rules, new flavors, new culture. And we need your help. Are you in?

Autodidact

07/08/20 • 24 min

Are you an Autodidact, or in other word, a self-learner? Is it easy for you to put yourself in the mindset of a student and research and explore the subjects that matter to you? We know that learning should never stop, but we are rarely taught how to learn. This meta-skill, we would say, is one of the most important ones in our lives. When we know how to learn, and how to learn by ourselves - then there is no limit to what we can know and achieve.

Show Your Work

07/01/20 • 18 min

In today's episode we're covering another great book from an American writer - Austin Kleon. In "Show your work" he shares with us principles to manifest creativity, do what we are passionate about and share the process with the people who care. This is more than a marketing gimmick, it is a way to grow your ideas, make them count and get feedback. It is a way to do deep work that matters. It is a way to become better by doing. This is why it resonated so much with us, and we hope you will get a lot out of it too.

Steal Like An Artist

06/24/20 • 24 min

In today's and next episode we're covering two great books from an American writer - Austin Kleon. He describes himself as "a writer who draws", and his books are in a way his personal manifestos. In "Steal like an artist" and "Show your work" he shares with us principles to manifest creativity, do what we are passionate about and share the process with the people who care. This is more than a marketing gimmick, it is a way to grow your ideas, make them count and get feedback. It is a way to do deep work that matters. It is a way to become better by doing. This is why it resonated so much with us, and we hope you will get a lot out of it too.

Coaching & Mentoring

Blue Lotus Cafe

play

06/17/20 • 20 min

After we covered what is the job of an educator or an instructor, we are ready to tackle on the roles of a coach and a mentor. What may look and sound the same, is actually not. There are different ways to help your customer and there is a different focus on what is important. Being a coach maybe makes more sense when you are trying to find clients to help out, but mentors are the ones who often don't need to be marketed and whose wisdom will keep you on your true values. Hopefully examples in our talk help you make a clear distinction and to know what title to use in creating your brand.

Teaching & Training

06/10/20 • 22 min

In the next two episodes we want differentiate Teaching and Training as a job/career, from Mentoring and Coaching. Too many people use these terms interchangeably, but they are very different in the mindset and the approach. If you identify yourself with any of these labels, listen in to see what responsibilities it encapsulates and what is expected of you by your students. This week we dive in Teaching & Training, a topic which compliments our previous episodes on "Instructor Mindset" and "Become a Teacher".
