Mark Cuban once said, "Don't start a company unless it's an obsession and something you love.". Here at ALIGN, we are firm believers of this sentiment, as we thrive off of the positive energy that stems from doing what we love. Positive energy is essential for any entrepreneur's early mornings and late nights and it is the positivity within that creates a sustainable life for business owners.
Surrounding yourself by positive people doesn't hurt either. Enter Biju Thomas of Biju's Little Curry Shop. Author of a few books, endurance athlete, private chef, consultant, and avid restaurateur. How does he do it all? We've experienced first hand as ALIGN had the privilege of executing both a client wedding weekend and dinner for Governor John Hickenlooper, with Biju as our Private Chef. It's a combination of the innovation, drive, attention to detail, and laughs in between that keep his passion for food thriving. Each event was executed seamlessly and all guests left with a smile, a belly full of goodness, and a sense of community. There is an art to achieving this experience and he writes about it in The Feed Zone Table.
Biju-- a visionary with a story. He is constantly encouraging the people that work with him and for him to strive for excellence. From his right hand man, Larry, that has Chai making down to an art, to his PR team--he actually draws inspiration from his employees and colleagues and counts on them to enhance each customer's experience.
We should all grab a cup of chai and toast to the people out there that empower you to be who you are and motivate you to keep putting your most vibrant colors out into the world.
Contact us if you are looking for an amazing celebrity chef for a private event. We think we have our finger on the pulse here. In the meantime, check out Biju's Little Curry Shop's most recent location inside of the Wholefoods in Tamarac and experience, first hand, the positive chi within.
