Bow Tie Monday started at Jordan High School in Columbus, GA when Darius Moore asked Derrick Hayes to participate and where a Bow Tie each Monday.
The last thought on Derrick Hayes mind was to wear a tie to work but he also did not want to say no to someone else dream. After wearing a bow tie for a few weeks there was a day when the weather would not permit anyone to go out and get another bow tie so Hayes had to learn how to turn the regular ties that he already had into bow ties so that he could continue to participate in Bow Tie Monday.
Since Derrick Hayes did not kill his dream it ended up living his. Derrick Hayes went from not wanting to wear a tie to sharing and teaching others how to tie regular ties and also how to turn them into bow ties and the impact and feedback from men, women and children was incredible.
Now Derrick Hayes has branded himself as the “enTIEtainer” since he has added new tie tying techniques to his seminars, workshops, routines and Stand Up Encouragement sessions. The “enTIEtainer” is available to perform and uplift audiences at schools, colleges, corporations, meetings, events, concerts, festivals, clubs, casinos, churches, carnivals and other venues.
A few years ago I needed a part time job and nobody was hiring so I applied to work at Little Caesars. At first I thought you could apply at the store but quickly I learned that the only way to get a job there was to fill out an application online.
When you are new in the pizza industry and even before you can take money or make the crust you have to start off in the back washing the dishes.
Every night I came to work I left everything in the sink as I was determined to be the best person to ever wash a pan. As time when on I was crossed trained in other areas but nobody and I mean nobody could keep up the flow of dishes on a Friday night which is the busiest day in the land of pizza.
When I was asked to leave early one night the person that replaced me started to curse and throw their apron. Not everyone is meant to do your job.
Even with my hands in the water from time to time I would look from the back to the front door and through the word DISH I’m here to share with you 4 Things I Observed in a Million Dollar Restaurant.
D is for Diversity. On any given shift you could have High School students, Colleges students and career professionals making pizza together at the same time. You may have a Grandmother being supervised by a Granddaughter. As diverse as it was I saw that no matter what the race or religion of the people we all found a way to have fun and make things work.
I is for Isolation. When you are the guy doing the dishes you are on an island by yourself. The only way you get help is when the rush is over. Just like in other industries if you can’t hold it down when they need you they have many other applications of people they can turn to. One way I made it work was to keep a pen or paper on me so that while I was washing dishes I would meditate and write down the great ideas when they would come to me. S is for Service. Science can do or want to do it
S is for Service. If customers are not greatly treated the business will soon be defeated. People can get a pizza from many other outlets and even from the gas stations and grocery stores so you have to take care of the customers because they are the ones that help your job take care of you. It is a blessing to see someone enter your workplace and leave with a smile on their face.
H is for Help. At the end of the day, help others and they will help you. The person washing the dishes is just as important as the one making the pizzas and the ones taking the money. If I don’t have the pans washed than no dough and ingredients can placed in the oven and if the pizzas are not in the oven than no pizzas can go out the door.
Even when I washed dishes in an environment with Diversity I appreciated the Isolation because it allowed me to see how great Service can Help create a Million Dollar Restaurant
