Warning: I don`t have my cat eye on.
When Oana sent me an email last week I was psyched. Because it was about Salad Box – this Romanian (yeah) healthy food love brand everybody knows – and because I was going to meet the owners. A young team who developed a successful business by giving people a simple alternative to fast food. Not that I`m not a fast food lover also. You know that but Salad Box is always among my favorite picks from all the restaurants I see in the food courts.
So I was going to be a Smoothie Operator in their new Bucharest location, strada Franceza. This new Salad Box location has a new branding and design, very modern and appealing, I would say. A S-M-O-O-T-H-I-E Operator? I have to invent my own recipe and to make it?!?! Well, this is a new and fresh challenge. Let`s do it. I got some advice from Clau, my team member fascinated by all things smoothie doable, I replied to Oana`s email with a YES and I went.
Well, first I felt a real motivation from their young team. And what Dan Isai said about believing in your idea and finding people who can turn from team members into family. Then, let me tell you that smoothie business is not an easy business. The quantity of each ingredient is important and there is a certain way and order in which you must mix them. Nu e chiar un maglavais aruncat asa impreuna intr-un blender cum ma gandeam eeu cu mintea mea de gaina. So I`ve learned a trick or two (so that you know, I`m buying a blender and once a week I`m planning to be a smooth Smoothie Operator at the office too #haha).
Even got compliments on my smoothie. From wonderful ladies. #Success
Left my Smoothie Operator job for a few minutes just to make my own salad assisted by Dan. Double Corn, rucola, sun flower seeds, pineapple, cheese and spicy olive oil. Just so you know.
I went for a tomato look, because the cabbage outfit was taken. Do you think I succeeded? The hat, the color of the dress as Tulpina, a?

Thank you for the experience Salad Box. And thank you for inspiring me to perform better in my business journey. But most of all, thank you for showing me that eating healthy can be delicious and fun.
