The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


You Can Tell How Proud Someone Is By How They Act …

I’ve written about my best mate and his new venture, Frothy Coffee.

Well a few weeks ago I went to Nottingham to see him and I have to say, it made me so happy.

Not just because he’s doing really well or even how he’s doing it – though some of his ideas would put big agencies to shame [offering dog biscuits and water so dogs get used to stopping at his stall so their owners end up buying a drink] -but how he is between customers.

The way he cleans.

The way he tidies.

The way he looks around to make sure everything is right.

The way he prepares for what might be coming up.

The way he makes warm, welcoming comments to people passing by.

He loves it.

Every single thing shows he absolutely loves it.

And you know what?

That feeling is infectious.

You want to have a coffee at his place.

You want to have a chat and even a sit down.

He pulls people in and suddenly strangers start chatting.

The love and pride he has in his job translates to something special … something as warm and welcoming as his drinks.

Everyone should feel this way, but not everyone does.

Many dream of starting their own thing, but few do it.

And to them I say they should go and see the Frothy Coffee man, because when you see the pride and joy Paul has doing his own thing, you’ll realize that no amount of fear can stop you wanting to feel that fulfilled.

I’m so happy and proud of you Paul.

Good to read Paul is doing well and having fun. Pride in your performance is always a sure sign you’re doing something you enjoy. Good photo of the 2 of you too.

Yep … pride is a real signal of a happy employee. I’m shocked how many companies ignore that, choosing to value speed or client satisfaction over the feeling of pride of a job well done. Truly well done, not in terms of ‘being liked’, but doing the right thing in the right way to the best of standards.

campbell and standards should never be fucking used in the same fucking sentence ever.

I love your friendship with Paul. It can sometimes go to places that are a little concerning, but this post is lovely. Congratulations.

I haven’t written about his large appendage in ages … maybe it’s time to do that again given you seem to be missing it. Hahaha.
