We later decided to have dinner there ourselves. When i went to pay I commented on how good it was to see the place full and that I was glad the special had worked out for her. She commented how she knew it was mostly down to what i had done and that when she had left for their morning catering job there was just 2 people booked in and when she came back there was 60 booked in. I am pretty sure we got a discount on our meal in fact i'm positive we did ( not that i asked or demanded) she just said $x and i paid then walked out and realised it was cheaper than i expected but she did read out all our meals/drinks so i know nothing was missed.
I would have spread the word about it regardless because these are lovely people running a really nice family restaurant. But it made me think if there is something i am missing here. It just seems to be something i am really good at ( spreading the word about stuff) and that I am one of those people who 'know' lots of people without being really good friends with everyone and manage to talk without sounding like a sales speil. There has to be some way i can make a living doing something similar and make money from something I am naturally good at.
