There is time for coming together around the table with Bryan Dayton, Boulder, Colorado

August 25, 2022

At its core, food is a cultural experience. Bryan Dayton wants to bring that experience to his patrons with each of his five Colorado restaurants.

His interest in food and the restaurant world began at an early age. He washed dishes, mopped floors, and even bartended later on. This experience, accompanied with an impressive travel résumé, gave him the foundation he needed to start his own businesses. In this episode, we discussed the need to share these experiences with others and how that coincides with our inherent need for social interaction.

How does Bryan make time for travel, work, and everything in between? By making Zero Excuses and bringing humility and perspective to his work. 

Key Takeaways:

– Traveling provides a way to connect to other cultures and yourself

– Having a wide array of interests gives perspective

– Humility enriches your outlook on business
