When we're bogged down with the daily hassles of life, we tend to lose our perspective.  No one knows that better than a small business owner. We end up focusing all of our attention on the never ending small and insignificant things that demand our attention  and we forget to see the beautiful interconnectedness of all things.  Apparently a trip to outer space changes all of that in an instant.  For 40 years, astronauts from all over the world have reported something called the Overview Effect, a cognitive shift in awareness that occurs after seeing Earth from space.  Check it out:

An Ode to the 98 Bottles Staff

 It takes a village, not just to raise a child, but to run a business.  Every employee’s part is essential to the success or failure of any operation. When you have exactly the right mix of people it all just works magically. In a small business this reality is amplified tenfold by the simple fact that there are less people to do all the work.  So everyone’s whole-hearted participation is key.  There is nothing more beautifully inspiring than gathering together a group of highly capable people, offering a little guidance, and then letting them loose to create while you stand back and watch the whole thing come alive.  At 98 Bottles we are blessed to have the most amazing staff. We are small but we are mighty!  Every single employee is unique and interesting, smart and motivated, funny and kind.  Our amazing kitchen staff manages to consistently put out delicious and beautifully presented food every single day, even when we are slammed with up to 80 guests who all arrive at the same time for shows in The Back Room.  Our server/bartending staff (who most of you know as the men in plaid) provide the very best customer service because they truly care about the people they serve.  Each and every one of them has their own distinctive personality and style and we are so proud of all of them.  So this is an ode to the 98 Bottles staff.  Thank you for all you do every day to help make 98 Bottles a success.  You guys are awesome-you make coming to work a pleasure!
