About Chef Andres: ======================== Chef Andres was raised with a passion for food, instilled by his grandma, “Ya-Ya,” who showed Andres so much love through the food she cooked. Warm pots of soup and fresh baked bread always inspire nostalgic memories for Andres. But entering the industry after graduating culinary school, Andres found that the fine dining scene was far from the warm memories that Ya-Ya cultivated. Food wasn’t love, it was just thankless hard work. Working in kitchens of high-end hotels like The Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, and Grand Del Mar Hotels in Chicago, San Francisco, and San Diego, Chef Andres was paying his dues like so many in the industry do—working long hours, getting yelled at by stressed-out bosses, and being constantly underappreciated and exposed to the toxic culture that underlies the restaurant industry. But he didn’t want to be just another stressed-out head chef making life miserable for young cooks working their way through the ranks. Instead, he branched out on his own to start his own business as a personal chef.  Now Chef Andres is able to share the love his grandmother shared with him through the foods he loves. His business now handles 30-40 cook events per month, and he doesn’t even have to do any more of the cooking! He’s able to pay his team well and give them the lives they deserve while enjoying more flexibility to share his passion and knowledge with fellow chefs by launching Chefpreneur. After creating a business and a lifestyle that he once thought was impossible, Chef Andres feels as though he’s been called upon by God to share this knowledge with all the cooks and chefs out there who need it. Outside of work, Andres savors the freedom he now has to spend plenty of time with his wife and five daughters at their home near Atlanta, GA.  ======================== About Brock Wagner: ======================== Co-Founder of Chefpreneur, and a business thought leader and strategist. From inside Chefpreneur to the stages at Chefpreneur Retreats and Events, Brock leads the team and our clients to create business machines with predictable systems and processes that drive growth and impact.

As a Chefprenuer, people often think that my job is 100% about the food. They think that if the food is amazing, the clients will enjoy it and want to book me again for another meal. Though the quality of the food is important, it’s actually only about 20% of what makes my clients more than happy to book me again or recommend me to a friend.    So, what is that other 80%? What could possibly be more important than the food I make?  In this episode, I’m going to teach you the 80/20 rule, where 20% of your service is focused on the food, and the other 80% is focused on your client’s experience. That 80% covers everything from how easily clients can contact you, to your attitude and behavior when you’re serving them.    Listen in for my expert advice on how to effectively use the 80/20 rule to focus on your servitude, humility, and passion, and bring in new clients that will keep coming back for more!   Join our FREE Facebook Group - The Chefpreneur Movement for awesome insights with our fellow Chefpreneurs!   Listen to this week’s podcast to learn more, but please send any questions you have to podcast@chefpreneurprogram.com    This episode was produced by Story On Media & Marketing: https://www.successwithstories.com.

In this episode, I am joined by Chef Pedro Candiota, who I believe has an incredible story to share. As a young marketing student from Brazil, he ended up meeting a group of chefs in New York that completely changed his life and pushed him headfirst into the restaurant industry. He worked hard to get to know all different aspects of the restaurant business and learned from incredible chefs in restaurants from New York to California.    It wasn’t an easy start for Pedro, and even after he was working in a Michelin group of chefs, he knew that the 16-hour day lifestyle wouldn’t last forever. After bouncing around different states and working all kinds of jobs,he finally decided to join our program to become a chefprenuer,  and has now started his own business for personal chefs, Gaian Chefs by Pedro Candiota.    I hope that listening to Pedro’s story in this episode will inspire you to keep pushing for what you want and motivate you to find that perfect career that you’ll love for the rest of your life.

In this episode, I wanted to take a step back and open up about the journey that got me to where I am today, because it really has been a journey. As I’m sure anyone understands, there are always going to be struggles when you want to build something for yourself, and for me, those struggles have paid off better than I could have imagined.    Today I have the freedom to run my own business, the ability to balance work and spending time with my family, and the career that I always dreamed of. I could not be more blessed, but this was not always my reality. I had to start from the bottom in order to build this life for myself, and I will be sharing the full story of that with you.    As always, my goal in making this podcast is to motivate, educate, and inspire you to take action on your dreams. By telling you about my journey, I hope to encourage you to look at your own path as you work towards your dream, and understand that it’s not about where you are right now or how you started, it’s about how you finish.    Join our FREE Facebook Group - The Chefpreneur Movement for awesome insights with our fellow Chefpreneurs!   Listen to this week’s podcast to learn more, but please send any questions you have to podcast@chefpreneurprogram.com

In this episode, I wanted to break down and get you guys to really change your mindset about how you look at things as you're spending money, or as you're investing money.   There's a huge difference between investing and spending. ​​We're going to give you three key differences.   First difference - spending is basically you putting your money or time out and getting nothing in return. Investing compounds either your money, it compounds your time and brings you back something in your business. The caveat is, you should be investing on something that you understand and have knowledge about. May it be on cryptocurrency, mutual funds or stocks for example. Educating yourself is very important.    Now the second difference is, spending is usually more of a short term outcome. And investing is usually a long term outcome. We’re not talking about just money here. This could be time, education and other stuffs as well. Unfortunately, though, for a lot of you, it's in the form of a job. And so you're investing again even more time. And the return on that is very little compared to other ways of doing things like owning your own business, which again, it's an investment of time, and there's money, but your return on your upside is far greater. It's got way more potential. So it all just depends on what you are looking at getting in return and what your expectation is.   Third difference is that spending is usually has little to no plan. While investing is the opposite. You need to plan well and understand where are you going to use your money or time to. Knowing what and when it will yield and grow back into.    We want to challenge you to start investing your time and your money in yourself, to what to learn new skills, and to build something that's going to return something to you. And again, we believe that that's in a business   Listen to this week’s podcast to learn more, but please send any questions you have to podcast@chefpreneurprogram.com   ____   SOME KICKSTART RESOURCES FOR YOU: ===================================   THE CHEFPRENEUR EBOOK The Ultimate Quick Guide For Starting A Personal Chef Business! https://ebook.chefpreneur.com/free-ebook    FREE PRICING FORMULA WORKSHOP Bullet Proof method that makes it easy for clients to book and pay for your services & get you paid what you’re worth. https://www.chefpreneurprogram.com/pricing-formula-workshop    14-DAY PERSONAL CHEF Find your first -or- next client in 14 days or less by diving into understanding our powerful sales formula, how to confidently speak to and book clients, and attracting not one but dozens, if not hundreds, of high-paying clients you actually want to serve. https://www.14daypersonalchef.com/get-started    The 100's of Chefpreneurs who have enrolled in one of our programs have overcome these challenges and are now living a life they never thought possible.

Did you know Perfection can really inhibit you to make decisions? Perfection, can really hinder you from taking action. That's really what it comes down to. Because we always want to be excellent. Sounds contradicting right?   When you think that you're going to attain perfection, it's never going to happen. And what it does is, it causes you to sometimes not take action, and really make excuses. Whereas, excellence is not perfection. Excellence is doing everything at your optimal best, all the time, as best as you can, no matter the situation, no matter what you know or what you don't know.   ​​And so because we don't want you to make excuses, we want you to take action, we want you to better your life, we want you to actually accomplish what we know you can do.

In starting a personal chef business, it is crucial to know which niche you really want to do given the varieties in the market. There are meal preparation and private events for example, which are 2 totally different things.In this episode, I will be discussing the differences of the two and its pros and cons. I am removing myself as a private chef, but as someone who has tried both and experienced it. Many of you might be asking yourself - I really want to be a personal chef, but I don't know... Am I doing some catering? What if someone wants meal prep? What about meal delivery? I want to answer those questions for you guys today and really give you what I believe are the pros and cons of each. Why I want to give you this is because I really want you to feel like you're confident in your services, to make sure that you're starting off on the right foot, and realizing what it is that you want to do.  If you are doing things that you don't want to do, I always say this:“What's worse than having a J.O.B - "Just Over Broke" is owning a J.O.B - So we don't want you to feel like that in your own business.    Listen to this week’s podcast to learn more, but please send any questions you have to podcast@chefpreneurprogram.com   ____   Subscribe to our YouTube Channel by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/iamchefpreneur_youtube and don’t forget to turn on the notifications to gain access to more great content!   Also...make sure you join The Chefpreneur Movement Facebook Group to be part of the discussion at http://bit.ly/chefpreneur-movement-group and this is a good start in surrounding yourself with the right people in starting the business and interact with like-minded chefs who are on a mission to break free from their kitchen job and build their own empire!    Lastly, we are bringing back our Chefpreneur Mastermind Retreat in February 2022.

I want to enlighten you on what I've learned about website building, and really about how the messaging and the entire aesthetics are very, very important to your website.   Most of you that have a website, you’re probably really focused on your story and on all those food pictures. Unfortunately, no one really cares. Your website visitors don’t really care about all of that. Most people that are looking at a website are trying to find or figure something out. So it’s important to lay out all the important things for you now so you don’t waste their time!   So I'm going to give you three simple things that your website should have, especially on its landing page or homepage! It needs to state clearly what it is that you offer and do.   When people go to your website, they're literally going to give you five to seven seconds to figure out what you have to offer. You need to portray what it is that you offer. If you do keto recipes or do personal chef services, it should explicitly say and show in your tagline.   Show how you’re going to portray the way you will benefit their life through a photo.    So again, going back to the keto-friendly personal chef. If someone is on your website, it should be like looking in the mirror, seeing something that they want to happen in their life from your website. So it resonates very fast in the person's brain - hey, I want to be that person in the picture. Your website needs to portray how to get in contact with you and how to get your services   Create that one big button on your website that says “Contact”. It is called CTA or also known as a “call to action”.You need a big call to action right underneath your tagline. So people know how to do business with you.    The whole purpose of your website is to actually take people that are looking for services, turn them into leads, and then turn them into paying customers.  Something to keep in mind: “If you confuse your customers, you'll lose your customers.” -    Listen to this week’s podcast to learn more, but please send any questions you have to podcast@chefpreneurprogram.com   ____   Subscribe to our YouTube Channel by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/iamchefpreneur_youtube and don’t forget to turn on the notifications to gain access to more great content!   Also...make sure you join The Chefpreneur Movement Facebook Group to be part of the discussion at http://bit.ly/chefpreneur-movement-group and this is a good start in surrounding yourself with the right people in starting the business and interact with like-minded chefs who are on a mission to break free from their kitchen job and build their own empire!    Lastly, we are bringing back our Chefpreneur Mastermind Retreat in January 2022.

The "NEW" Opportunity

The "NEW" Opportunity

2021-03-3015:26

This pandemic really hit us hard... On our jobs, our families, and even our mental health. But what I believe this pandemic has also done is made us see an opportunity to take action.   As a Chefpreneur, I see opportunities everywhere. I'm not waiting for something to happen in order for me to see the opportunity. Sadly, most of us get comfortable doing mundane sequences in our lives. Why? Because of a false mindset. We limit ourselves with the possibilities of what we can do.   I believe that God has a purpose for every single person listening to this podcast. It does take hard work. It takes a lot of effort. But that's the second part of it. That's the action-taking part, which again, I've talked about on my podcast as well. Many of us don't want to take action. And if you want to go back and listen to the podcast, where I teach you: “The way that you think dictates what you believe in. What you believe dictates what you take action on. You're never gonna take action on something you really don't believe in.”   I want you to start to see that there's so much opportunity around you. Don’t let this pandemic stop you or, don’t let another pandemic or tragedy make you realize the opportunities around you. Take that leap of faith for your chance of financial freedom and being your own boss!   Listen to this week’s podcast to learn more, but please send any questions you have to podcast@chefpreneurprogram.com   ____   Subscribe to our YouTube Channel by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/iamchefpreneur_youtube and don’t forget to turn on the notifications to gain access to more great content!   Also...make sure you join The Chefpreneur Movement Facebook Group to be part of the discussion at http://bit.ly/chefpreneur-movement-group and this is a good start in surrounding yourself with the right people in starting the business and interact with like-minded chefs who are on a mission to break free from their kitchen job and build their own empire!    _____   We are motivating, educating, and inspiring chefs to take a stand for their Personal Freedom by breaking the Chains of a Kitchen Job and building their own Personal Chef Business.   The future is yours… put it into your own hands!
It’s all about mindset. This formula is what I used to defeat my self-doubts. You can totally reset your mindset by following this formula:“What you THINK will dictate how and what you BELIEVE.And what you BELIEVE will dictate what you DO.And what you DO dictates your FUTURE!”The realization will come when you do self-checks. This self-reflection will help you understand why and how you think on a daily basis. If you don’t start thinking bigger about yourself, you won’t be able to improve and move forward.There are 3 things that dictate how you think:1. What you see - what you see invokes your thoughts and it can cause you to think either positive or negative.2. What you hear - what you hear sets your mood, thinking, and dictates your thoughts.3. What you read - captivates and inspires you to move and take an action!Remember that making mistakes is also good because you are actually doing and learning something. From a thought, it becomes a belief. Then your actions will follow.    Listen to this week’s podcast to learn more, but please send any questions you have to podcast@chefpreneurprogram.com   ____   You can join and register for our 14-Day Personal Chef program at www.14daypersonalchef.com.
