If you’re reading this, I love you. Now as a human being we are supposed to love all humans and I try to do that but I fail often whether it's at the grocery store, in traffic...you get the picture. But YOU I really do love.
If you’re reading this I am where I am because of you. I started doing food tours almost seven years ago and it was like when the Wizard of Oz switched from black and white to color. I really liked this job right from the beginning. About five years ago, I started to get the idea to start my own food tour business. After prodding from my wife, my father-in-law and my friend Jon Chattman, I decided to take the leap.
OK, I started a food tour business. I know how to give a food tour. I know some cool facts, and I know some great food stops. I’m good at giving tours but how do I get people to come on the Tours? Well. At first, they didn’t. A few people here and there but not enough to really have a sustainable business. Then something happened. I started to get more and more five-star reviews on TripAdvisor and people were finding me there. If you’ve been on my tour and wrote me a five-star review on TripAdvisor, I love you. You are the reason my business is successful.
If you’ve been on my tour and you put a picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram - I love you. I am where I am today because of you. Thank you. If you took my tour and then told someone about it, I love you. You’ve helped my family to stay fed, warm and clothed. It sounds cheesy but it’s real. These are the facts, folks. I am where I am today because of you. I got a message today asking about a tour. The lady is visiting from the UK and said, “I was at my doctors office last week and she told me I had to take your tour." I love that doctor. Again, I also love you all who are reading this.
This is my Valentine to you all - thank you for sharing my posts and clicking the "like" button. You are helping a hard-working man care for his family by doing something he loves and therefore you are also making the world a better place. I love you. I’ll see you on a tour soon - keep in mind: one out of every one doctors recommends me!
