The Benefits Of Bartending - Articles Surfing
Bartending can be the highest paying food service career out there. Me, being the positive person I am, I try to always find the benefits and lessons in everything, so this is, in my opinion,a list the best benefits of bartending. I personally, make more money than anyone else, including the other bartenders & managers.
Freedom... Forget about working the 9 to 5. I have freedom to sleep in and get up whenever I want. My shifts are generally four to six hours MAX. So I make twice the cash in half the time of most people out there.
Flexibility... I could get a full-time gig at a nightclub, casino,restaurant, bar, or sports venue. Or hire out my services part-time for weddings, yacht parties, banquets, etc. The ridiculous amount of flexibility in bartending gives me time to work on my internet business. I can arrange to have my shift covered anytime, there is always someone willing to make some extra cash.
Connections...Celebrities, business owners, and movers & shakers! I am in a position of to make someone's night, and when I do, people want to help me out in crazy ways- anyway they can. Which reminds me...
Free Stuff... Everyone wants to be the bartender's friend, everyone likes to be "connected" with the person in the know. I cannot list how much free stuff I have been given... from designer clothes, roses, Laker tickets, free merchandise at other establishments, to several Ben Franklin's at a time, It is unbelievable!
The opportunities I have attracted are incredible. From job offers, investment opportunities, free stuff from liquor companies, to a movie audition....one man offered to pay for my car when it was damaged!
Travel Anywhere... I could easily travel the world without a shortage of work. Ever wanted to go to Europe for a year but thought you could not afford it? Want to go live in an exotic travel destination? Caribbean? Jamaica? Australia? Cruise ship? Bartending is a good skill to learn.
Skills... I may not want to be a bartender forever, but the skills I have developed will benefit me down the road forever. Not only physically, but the human behavior knowledge that I have learned is priceless.
The situations I have been in while bartending have boosted my confidence, problem solving ability, personality and salesmanship,communication skills,etc...All these are necessary steps to becoming successful in all facets of life. There are times, I feel that I am on a higher level than most people I meet, No substance abuse involved ;)
