How I Make $150 Per Hour As Bar Inventory Auditor

*(At the end of this article, grab a FREE copy of my latest book, The Bar Auditor's Handbook: The Undergound Playbook for Earning $150/Hr. as a Bar Inventory Auditor, which shares the exact blueprint system I used to build my 6-figure auditing business) I have no idea who you are, how happy you are with your current career right now or how you got here, but what I do know is that in the summer of 2010, I was at the end of my rope. I’m talking curled-up-in-the-corner-sucking-my-thumb end of the rope. After spending two decades working in bars for tips and managing uninspired employees, I took a look around and suddenly realized—as many hospitality workers do—that the path I was headed down was aimed directly at dead-end brick wall with very few options that would help me avoid the endless late nights and relying on 18% gratuity to pay for my retirement. Be honest: Almost nobody wants to work in a bar/restaurant forever. Almost...

10 Awesome Novelty Drink Ideas For Your Bar

If you haven't read WHY you should find a novelty drink for your bar, go back and read 7 REASONS YOU SHOULD CREATE A NOVELTY DRINK FOR YOUR BAR. If you don't need any more convincing and are ready for some ideas so you can get started creating buzz at your bar, let me share with you the best 10 novelty drinks I have had that I couldn't stop thinking or talking about with other people. 1. The Big Ass Mule. I have to put this at #1 because it's the one we chose for our bar. Not to mention Moscow Mules popularity has spread faster than the zombie population on The Walking Dead. The way we do it is to fill the 96 oz. cup with ice, add 4 oz. of lime juice and empty a 12.68 oz. bottle of Tito's into the giant mug. Then top with ginger beer. One of our biggest sellers, especially on the weekends.   2. THE OUTRAGEOUS BLOODY...

7 Reasons You Should Create a Novelty Drink For Your Bar

For those of you new to the subject of novelty bar drinks, they are the equivalent of a cat chasing after and swatting at a piece of yarn you dangle in front of it. Stupid cat. I own one myself (not by choice) She sits there with that superior-to-the-rest-of-us attitude, yet the moment there's movement, she just can't help herself. She tries to pretend she doesn't care, but like an addict with a line of cocaine sitting on the table, she eventually can't stand it anymore and pounces on it. It's quite entertaining to watch, and in the same way my cat is attracted to it's precious yarn, people are enthralled and fascinated by novelty drinks.

Your Bar Manager Sucks!

Your Bar Manager Sucks!

Many people may not know this about me, but I’m on a committee to pass a bill that requires bar managers to do “management ride-alongs” with other successful managers before they are allowed to get hired as a bar or restaurant manager.  Alright, I lied.  After all, committees are hard. It wasn’t until I started my business five years ago that I really started paying attention and putting managers under a microscope, and since then the lack of leadership and accountability I have witnessed has started me down a rabbit hole of madness. I’m talking curl-into-a-fetal-position-and-suck-your-thumb kind of madness.  Forget postal workers. Apathetic bar managers incite me to be 21 times more likely to carve someone’s eyes out with a salad fork than a mailman. I can only compare it to Chinese water torture (drip, drip, drip).  That single drop splashing on your forehead is nothing at first, but witnessing bar managers leaning indifferently on the end of the bar for an hour without moving...
