At some point in your life if you haven’t already, you’ll look back at yourself and think, “I was clueless”. Be it a rite of passage or an acknowledgement of personal growth, admitting you were young and naive is good for you.
Hopefully you’ve seen the movie, if not, Clueless is one of those “cute” movies with positive life lessons, and feel good messages that’s become a classic. We’ve all been young and clueless at one point in our lives. We learn that the more you know, the more you realize how much you don’t know. That each generation stands on the shoulders of the generation before them and so on.
I started my food service career as a server, completely clueless to how big of an industry I was getting into. With integrity and curiosity, I just kept learning as much I could about food service and have a feeling that’s just going to be who I am.
There is always something to learn and always someone who new to meet, you just have to be open to it. The American Culinary Federation Chefs Association of Arizona meetings are a place for food and food service professionals meet and network, get to know more like minded people in your community. Reduce the clueless moments throughout your career, stay connected, get involved, and share your knowledge.

Original post from BuzzFeed from TNT Franklin & Bash
“In 1995, Clueless laid down the laws of social survival for an entire generation. In 2013, Beverly Hills High School’s resident rule breaker Travis Birkenstock, better known as Breckin Meyer, continues to bend the law as a lawyer on TNT’s Franklin & Bash. “
