Something I’ve Noticed is a Game-Changer For Many of My Clients is: Meal Planning!
I just spent 8 days working as a private chef at 2 back-to-back retreats. That meant shopping for, prepping, cooking, and presenting a total of 7 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 5 snacks, and 7 dinners (plus dessert and cake for two birthdays!) for dozens of hungry attendees.
