All roads may lead to Rome but some are a lot prettier than others.
At Marzipan we strive to make the Design process exciting and enjoyable for our Staff and our Clients. We believe that when there is good synergy and good communication between Owner, Operator, Designer & Project Manager that the results are tangible in the end product.
Every new project is a fresh challenge and one which we embrace without preconceived ideas.
Last Tuesday we had an important Design Presentation to Clients & Operator at the Marzipan Studio.
Naturally we wanted to provide lunch for the event and we spent several weeks prior liaising with the caterers, so were confident that we had covered everyone’s needs. I did wonder why providing sandwiches and salads for twelve was costing such a fortune until the food arrived and I realized we had enough for at least 40 people not 12.
HOW EMBARRASSING. We actually couldn’t stop laughing as it was so extreme. After the clients left we had to ask a friend to pick up the leftovers and take them to the local soup kitchen.
We crammed everything we could into the back of her car but Marzipan were still eating wraps and chicken salad a week later! At that point I realized that if you are a Jewish Mother the question that you ask corporate caterers is not “Have I ordered enough?’ but “Have I ordered too much?”
Once upon a time in a far away land there was the desire to do more and do better. When you start writing your own story the possibilities are endless. Every day is an adventure and even when it’s hard it’s fun. For the first time in my career I fully understand this quote:
“Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”
