under the radar, unbeknownst to many people

This January saw the launch of my small party personal event catering company (think parties from 1 person to 16 people)
Intimate in your house, haute cuisine from a classically trained professional.

And my boss (I still work full time at a restaurant) threw me a HUGE bone...
CEO of a big company in Minneapolis wants dinner Monday, he had contacted Paul who threw him my way

I'm just venting a little, trying not to stress as it's my first event, and not a small one, and not for a guy who wants a special birthday dinner for his GF or wife...
If I fuck up (pardon the french) it looks bad on a baby company, he won't recommend me to friends, but most importantly it will reflect poorly on Paul
I just hit panic mode really, Paul gave me the weekend off to prep / shop etc... but man... I haven't felt this nervous in a long time.

Nervous is good. Keeps you alert and sharp. Good luck!

Cooking's cooking, you got this. We often get celebrities and senators where I'm at, whenever servers come back nervous I tell them they're just another customer, just be yourself and do what you do, you'll be fine.

It's only food; the same stuff you've been cookin' every day for how long now?
It's just another day at work :)

If you weren't capable... you wouldn't have been asked/recommended.

Easy. Just make sure that he likes the food, and that he likes you. Hiccups will always happen. It's not what happens, it's how you deal with it.

Good luck!

I shouldn't panic, but I am.
This is a great chance to Network with potential clients and if it goes right.. then maybe by next year I'm my own boss.
