If there is one episode to listen to, this is the one! This episode is a recap of what I learned in my first year as Host of Restaurant Unstoppable.  It is a summary of the most valuable lessons I've learned from interviewing over 75 successful restaurant professionals. I went through every episode and tallied the most common answers and summarize them all. I'll wrap up with explaining the evolution of the show over the past year and my vision for the future. Lastly,  I can't way to wrap up an end of year show with what I was grateful for in 2014.
