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.

The DISH Man: 4 Things I Observed in a Million Dollar Restaurant

April 15, 2020

DISH Man

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

DERRICK Interview with Motivational Speaker and Author Jonathan Rivers

February 12, 2018

Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with Jonathan Rivers who has as a BS in Marketing from Auburn University and MBA from the University of Phoenix. Mr. Rivers is married to his wife Erica and they have four children; Kingston, Ezra Adah and Titus. He is also an author, motivational speaker, professional development consultant and youth coach and mentor.

D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?

My dream is to travel around the world with the purpose of transforming mindsets through speaking, encouraging and enlightening. I plan to create a program that sends young men and women to leadership camps to build their acumen and leadership skills, which they will bring back to the community and share with their peers.

E is for Education. What is your educational background and how do you use it daily?

I have my BS in Marketing from Auburn University and my MBA from the University of Phoenix. I consistently speak about the principles I learned in college such as the product life cycle and human capital. I also discuss my experiences of discovering my purpose, overcoming adversity and building relationships.

R is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?

I consider myself unique because of my versatility. I am a powerful and passionate storyteller with knowledge and experience because of my background as a former collegiate athlete, high school educator, motivational speaker and believer in Christ.

R is for Ready. When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?

I realized I was ready to run my own speaking and consulting business when I was laid off from the University of Phoenix in 2014. I applied for at least 40 jobs and got told no every single time. I then knew I wasn’t being told no to anyone’s organization; I was being told yes to my purpose!

I is for Individual. Name at least one individual in your network that others should learn more about and why?

Darren Palmer is my publisher, one of my mentors and a driven individual. He is the owner of his own self publishing company (selfpublish-N-30days) and he has helped me step into a new level of greatness. His vision and preciseness regarding his professional direction is inspiring and beneficial to anyone.

C is for Challenges. What challenges have you had to overcome?

I was abandoned by my father at birth and raised by a single mother. I was sexually abused as a child and involved in multiple life threatening car accidents. There was a time I only had $30 in my checking account but I did not allow those circumstances to make me a victim because I chose to allow them to make me a victor.

K is for Key. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders?

1. Do not compere yourself to anyone else! God made each of us in his mold, but unique in our own way. Everyone has a purpose and it is not predicated on being just like the next person. Work to be better than you were yesterday, rather than being better than someone else.

2. Be intentional about everything in your life! Too many people live life on cruise control with a laissez faire attitude because they don’t care what may transpire. If you don’t intentionally create your road to success, you are creating your road to mediocrity.

3. Learn, Learn, Learn! Continue to research what it is that you want to pursue in life. Do not allow the opportunity to learn be stripped because of arrogance or your perception of a specific source. Life is a teaching tool and it needs to be observed.
