Let's talk about Peter X. Kelly.
What Peter lacked in formal culinary training he more than made up for in mindset and at the end of the email, we'll give you some of his inspirational quotes.
In 2006, he defeated Bobby Flay and rose to become an Iron Chef. Making him one of the youngest chefs at the Highlands Country Club in Garrison, New York, at the age of 23.
When asked if he was nervous to be such a position and so young, he explained that ‘the risk of failure should not be seen as fearful but motivational’.
Kelly went on to open seven successful venues across America.
Today Kelly's restaurants and catering business generate a staggering $10 million in annual sales.
The restaurant business is a difficult one.
In Kelly's instance, the combination of calculated risks and hard work paid off.

To show our respect to Kelly’s motivational story, we bring you some top quotes surrounding his hard work and motivation in business.
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.”
“Some chefs, if you ask for a well-done steak, they say no. With Peter, if you want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich he’ll do it, and it will be the best peanut butter and jelly sandwich you’ve ever had.”
“Inspiration is everywhere.”
“I looked at it this way. I was only 23, and if it failed, I’d pick myself up and do something else.”
“Spend more time with customers rather than racing all over the place, become customer-centric.”
