“Discover the ONE THING that Makes the Difference Between an Average Restaurant and a Phenomenally Successful Restaurant Business”

It all happens at The Howard Partridge Round Table featuring the World’s #1 Leadership Expert Dr. John C. Maxwell

May 15th-17th Houston, TX

Plus, special restaurant owner sessions with Jim Laube and Joe Erickson from RestaurantOwner.com!

Dear Friend and Independent Restaurant Owner,

Could there be ONE THING that can make your restaurant more successful? Is there one single thing that can make the difference between average success and phenomenal success in your restaurant? Is there just ONE thing that can change EVERYTHING?

The answer is yes there is!

The ONE THING is becoming a better leader of your business

John Maxwell says everything rises and falls on leadership. He goes on to say the toughest person to lead is ourselves.

The term leadership may not excite you as a restaurant owner, but what leadership can do for you should excite you…

  • When you become a better leader, you get more cooperation from your staff
  • When you become a better leader, you can reach your biggest goals faster. If you have a big dream, but you’re not very good at leading the team, you’ve got to give up the dream, or build up the team.
  • When you become a better leader, you can get your restaurant organized and systematized so you have less stress in your life and less chaos in your business.
  • When you become a better leader, you learn how to run your restaurant by the numbers rather than emotion which helps you make more money.

FACT: Your restaurant won’t change until you do…

The #1 reason small businesses don’t grow (or do as well as they could) is what I call F.T.I. (Failure To Implement).  If you want to have a phenomenally successful business, you’ve got to become a phenomenally successful business owner.

BE-DO-HAVE

Zig Ziglar said “if you want to have something different, you’ve got to do something different. If you want to consistently do something different, you’ve got to be something different”.

Zig also said “you were born to win, but to be the winner you were born to be, you’ve got to plan to win and prepare to win before you can expect to win, but when you plan to win and prepare to win, you can expect to win.

The exclusive leadership coach for Restaurant Owner.com

Hi, I’m Howard Partridge, and my journey as a business owner and international business coach has proven this to be true. As I became a better leader, I became a more effective business owner – which launched my business and career into the stratosphere.

I’m originally from L.A. (Lower Alabama!). I grew up on welfare in a little 600 square-foot shack with 7 kids crammed into it. My mama fed us on a hundred dollars a month from the welfare department. When I was 18 years old, I climbed onto a Greyhound bus and arrived in Houston, TX with 25 cents in my pocket.

I became a waiter for several years and then got married at age 23. With our wedding money, I started my first business out of the trunk of my car. That was almost 30 years ago. After 13 long years, I felt like a slave to my business. I worked 24/7 and couldn’t go on vacation without the cell phone and appointment book.

Then I learned how to become a better leader. I built a team and built systems which helped me transform my business into a multi-million dollar, turnkey operation.

I’ve owned 9 small businesses altogether and I have 4 successful businesses today. I’ve had partners, bought businesses, sold businesses, owned real estate and done network marketing. Whatever mistake, challenge, or issue you can think of, I’ve probably made it, solved, or faced it.

For the past 17 years, I’ve helped countless business owners around the world build phenomenally successful businesses, I have two #1 Amazon.com best-selling books, and I work with some of the world’s top business experts. I’m honored to be the first Zig Ziglar Certified Legacy Trainer in the world, and the very first founding member of The John Maxwell Coaching Team.

Today, I enjoy being the exclusive leadership coach for RestaurantOwner.com. Restaurant owners are becoming better leaders, they are improving their staff and their profits. It all started for them at one of our conferences.

The conference gave me uncountable new ideas as well as solved lots of problems. There is no doubt that this investment of time and money will pay for itself many times over.

-Clint Proctor, Carolina BBQ, RestaurantOwner.com Member

Phenomenal event for leadership. Many times as a small business owner, you feel you don’t have the resources and Howard and his team are able to deliver that in one package.

Alice Ng, Ginger Rootz RestaurantOwner.com Member

“If you want to be a phenomenal success, hang around people like my buddy Howard here… he not only knows the way, but shows the way… John Maxwell

- John Maxwell , World's #1 Leadership Expert

Are you ready to become a phenomenal restaurant owner?

 If the answer is yes, then be sure to attend The Howard Partridge Round Table featuring Dr. John C. Maxwell. Other than the Grace of Almighty God and the people He has put in my life, attending live events has had the biggest impact on my life and business.

Attending a live conference gets you out of the pressure cooker, and gives you time to work ON your business, instead of just IN it. A live event gets you around other people who you can learn from.

 I’ve done many small business conferences over the past 17 years and I am told over and over by attendees and experts alike that our events are the best they’ve ever attended. (See what attendees have to say below).

(Business owners travelled from around the world to attend my most recent conference which featured Michael E. Gerber)

What is The Howard Partridge Round Table all about?

Each of my conferences has a specific, unique purpose. The mission of this conference is to help you become the restaurant owner you need to be to take your business to the next level.

This is why I’ve invested a huge sum of money to bring in John Maxwell. John, myself and the team will help you become the business owner you need to be to take your business to the next level.

The conference opened my eyes to the reality of where my business is, was and where it needs to be and how easily it can get there!

Bethany Adree, The Snack Bar, RestaurantOwner.com Member

During my 11 years of running my small business, I have found few events worthy of taking time (valuable time) away from work. This was definitely an exception. 

Robert Keto , Moe's Southwest Grill

Are you ready to finally have the restaurant you’ve always dreamed of?

Imagine this… your business is humming along, your staff is happy, and you’re living the life you’ve always imagined. Is that even possible? The answer is “YES!”. I’m living proof, and my conferences and systems are helping small business owners around the world do the same.

But it starts with becoming the person you must be to build the kind of restaurant and life you want.

Remember, you don’t have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great. I hope to see you at this special one-time only event.

Sincerely,

** ATTENTION RESTAURANT OWNERS **

Aaron Jones , MoJo's, RestaurantOwner.com Member

I thought it was too good to be true. So, I went online; determined to find the truth about Howard Partridge. After an exhaustive search ofnthe internet, I couldn’t find one derogatory comment.

Since becoming an Inner Circle member, my managers are thriving because they have guidelines and structure.  They’re helping devise their own systems.  AND, they’re starting to free me up to do what I need to do: Work ON my business instead of IN my business.

CONFERENCE AGENDA

Registration Open at 7:30am.
First Session Begins Promptly at 8:00am.

DAY 1: Thursday May 15th, 2014

THINK and Become Phenomenally
Successful
– Howard Partridge

John Maxwell says the difference between highly successful people and those who aren’t is how they think (and what they think about).

This quote says it well…

When you change your thinking, you change your beliefs
When you change your beliefs, you change your expectations
When you change your expectations, you change your attitude
When you change your attitude, you change your behavior
When you change your behavior, you change your performance
When you change your performance, you change your life

In this session, you’ll learn how to change your habits which will increase your performance as a business owners. You’ll learn a process to use when you face the various challenges in running your business.

Learning what Howard calls The 5 Levels of Being Phenomenal will help you press through the issues and dramatically improve your performance, therefore improving your business.

As an independent, certified John Maxwell trainer, Howard Partridge
will present two John Maxwell programs…

The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth
– Howard Partridge

(Live them and Reach Your Potential)

The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.

In John’s newest training program The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, he says To reach your potential, you must grow. And to grow, you must be highly intentional about it. Learning these laws will help you learn how to grow and develop yourself so you have the best chance of becoming the person you were created to be.

John goes on to say “To discover your purpose, you need to grow in self-awareness. To become a better human being, you need to grow in character.

In this session, you’ll learn how to apply the laws of growth to your own life, so you can become the person you need to be, to lead your business more effectively.

Becoming a Person of Influence
– Howard Partridge

(How to Positively Impact the Lives of Others)

John says that leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less. How do you gain influence in someone else’s life? By adding value to them. When you don’t value people, you de-value them.

Zig Ziglar said “you can have everything in life you want, if you just help enough other people get what it is they want”.

Therefore, becoming a person of influence – having a positive impact on the lives of others will have a tremendous impact on your business. When you can get others to buy into you and your vision for your business, you can begin to get greater results.

All of business is about relationships. If you want to understand how to influence people in a positive way, be sure to attend this session.

Ziglar Legacy Training

DAY 3: Saturday May 17th, 2014

Dr. John C. Maxwell – The World’s

#1 Leadership Expert

This is a rare opportunity to see John Maxwell in person. The normal settings where you could see John Maxwell would be in an audience of thousands, or you would pay ten to twelve thousand to attend a weekend event with him (I’ve done that).

There is nothing like seeing John live. You’ll be glad you came. One of the reasons I brought John in is that he is getting a little older now and I didn’t want you to miss the opportunity to meet him.

For years I told myself “go meet Jim Rohn” and I never did. Many people tell me they would have like to meet Zig Ziglar in person, but now it’s too late. Don’t make that mistake. It will be worth every penny and whatever you need to go through to get here.

About John Maxwell…

John C. Maxwell is an internationally renowned leadership expert, coach, and author with more than 22 million books sold. Dr. Maxwell founded The John Maxwell Company and EQUIP, organizations that have trained more than 5 million leaders in 185 countries. Every year he speaks to Fortune 500 and 100 companies, international government leaders, and organizations such as the United States Military Academy at West Point, the NFL, and the United Nations. A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week best-selling author, Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership has sold more than 2 million copies. Developing the Leader Within You and The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader have each sold more than 1 million copies.  You can follow him on Twitter @JohnCMaxwell and read his blog at JohnMaxwell.com.
