We’re both big fans of Eric Cacciatore’s leading podcast in the industry, Restaurant Unstoppable, so it was a real pleasure having Eric as our guest this week. We’ve actually both been on the podcast before (links below).
Eric has an interesting story. He’s a former commercial airline pilot who made an unlikely career change. In this conversation, Eric shares what this transition was like, the origin of his successful podcast, what he learned in the early days when he was first starting out, and what some of the things are that he has learned over the course of nearly 400 interviews, featuring the best professionals in the hospitality industry.
In this episode, we discuss:
- What it was like going from a “real job” to taking a leap into starting a podcast in the restaurant industry.
- How to persevere through the early days of any project, career or business when you’re not seeing immediate results
- The biggest lesson Eric has learned from the most successful hospitality professionals
- The top books for restaurant success
- The importance of staying focused on your vision
- And much, much more…
