Candid inspiration from two restaurant gurus at an AFAR Conversations:

"Write a narrative for the year and create a better you. We have the most educated people in the world, yet the most fear to take the leap." Marcus Samuelsson, chef behind Red Rooster, Ginny’s Supper Club and Norda Bar & Grill.

"Don't sweat the things you don't know. Celebrate the things you do know. You'll figure the rest of it out." Will Guidara, co-owner of Made Nice Hospitality Group which includes Eleven Madison Park and NoMad.

"It's not about creating what people want. It's about creating what you believe in." Will Guidara
