Become a Bartender – Speed & Multitasking

If you're serious about becoming a bartender, and more importantly, if you're serious about making a lot of money bartending, you'd better know how to be fast and that means multitasking. As you know, there is nothing worse than the sloth bartender who takes forever to get your drink order, and then once they finally do take your order, they take an extra eternity making it and then ringing it up. Why is speed and multitasking so important? In the first place, nobody is going to tip you well if they have to wait to get their drink, which means you can expect a couple shiny quarters for those 4 cocktails you made. And in the second place, if you're making 50 drinks per hour instead of 150 drinks per hour, your tips are going to be three times less (see how quick I am on the math). In this video, I'm going to show you how exactly how I train my bartenders to...

7 Steps to Becoming a Bartender With Absolutely No Experience

7 Steps to Becoming a Bartender With Absolutely No Experience

I'm just gonna say it: Bartending is AWESOME! Before starting my business Bar Patrol in 2010, I spent 15 years pouring beers, shaking martinis and creating awesome shots and cocktails for guests who had come to my adult playground to frolic. And in the process, I was walking home with $300 - $400 per shift each and every night. Not bad for someone who is simply facilitating a party. As many of you know, a large portion of my business is training people with no experience to become bartenders, so if that's you, and you've come here in search of information on how you can get started raking in fistfuls of cash day after day, night after night, you'll want to check out the video below, 7 Steps to Becoming a Bartender With Absolutely No Experience.

How to go From Barback to Bartender in 5.2 Seconds

How to go From Barback to Bartender in 5.2 Seconds

Ok, maybe not 5.2 seconds, but fast stuff is so cool I just couldn't help myself. As you may or may not be aware, the entire purpose of my bartender online course, TheRealBarCourse, is to get you well-trained and then get you a bartending job as quickly as possible, but if you're a barback or are looking to get hired as a barback, there are highly effective ways to accelerate your path to becoming a bartender quickly. Because the truth is, if you are looking to become a bartender and you have no experience, getting hired as a barback is one path you can't go wrong with, for a few reasons: 1) You get your foot in the door 2) You get free training on how to become a bartender (if you pay attention) 3) You still make decent money (the average barback walks with $100+ in tips on the weekends) 4) If you play your cards right, you can move up the ranks from barback to...

7 Things to Consider When Choosing a Bartending School

7 Things to Consider When Choosing a Bartending School

The #1 question I have been asked throughout my career by people who want to become a bartender and who are considering signing up for TheRealBarcourse is: "Should I go to bartending school?" Followed by the second most asked question: "How do I choose the right one?" Just to make things clear, I am not anti-bartending school as long as you can find one that does it right. Problem is, I have yet to find many that qualify. In fact, I have yet to find one that does it right from beginning to end, which is why I created TheRealBarCourse. If you want more details, CLICK HERE. However, each little squirrel must find his/her own way, so when you're out there researching, here are 7 things you should consider when choosing the right bartending school or course for you. 1. THE COST We all know this is the first question on everyone's mind, so let's get right to it. As with anything you purchase, you should consider if what you're buying is worth the...

The Online Bartending School to End All Bartending Schools?

The Online Bartending School to End All Bartending Schools?

Before you say anything. I'm fully aware that I'm a walking contradiction. I tell people who ask my advice about bartending school not to go, and yet I vehemently tell people to sign-up for my online bartending school/ bartending course. You can find out more about my course here. Seems like an self-serving thing to do, doesn't it? And technically it is, because I get paid for it, but trust me, it's a very difficult position to be in. What it comes down to is that all other bartending schools and online bartending courses are very different than mine. The truth is they are teaching their students the wrong things when it comes to helping them become a bartender. Or maybe not the "wrong" things as much as they are leaving out 70% of the lessons necessary to help people actually land the job. If you really want to know what I think about bartending schools, watch my video. My point is, imagine if you were Lebron James,...
