Fresh Cut Catering /
2010 - 2012, Jackson, MS | www.freshcutcateringandfloral.com
Nothing teaches you more about having a good attitude and working on a team more than catering. It’s hard work, you work long hours, and you always have to have a smile on your face. I think it had a profound effect on my work ethic and my ability to work under stressful situations while maintaining a positive attitude.
