Ever since i was able to talk and walk I have been a die hard IU fan and now that I am a senior i am one step away from possibly attending my dream school. As an undergraduate i plan on pursuing a business career that would allow myself to reach and receive a Bachelors degree with a major in Business Operations while obtaining a Marketing Minor which will authorize me to move on and reach my goal of owning my own business in more specific terms owning a Chick-Fil-A. Ive been working at Chick Fil A since I was fifteen and have recently been promoted to the management team which I am very humbled by since I am only sixteen.
Many people lately have been raving over Chipotle, and Chick Fil-a lately. I have always thought to myself what is so great about these two food chains. Many people like Chipotle, and then there a a lot of people that love Chick-Fil-A. I just want to figure out what is so great about these two places, and figure out how they are the same, and how they are different.
Eating out can be a fast, easy way to get a meal quick. But do we really know what is going in our bodies? Through research the numbers for a typical meal at Chick-Fil-A was found a recorded and also an alternative meal was found and recorded. The amount of total calories for typical meal at Chick-Fil-A is 1270 calories and my daily estimated calorie needs for one day is 2188 calories. As seen, research was done on an alternative meal which consists of 690 total calories. The alternative meal was moderately easy to lower the calories at Chick-Fil-A. At times there is belief which there is no healthy, cheap food item on fast food menus, but if looked and searched healthier meals can be found.
I aspire to emulate the moral convictions of Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A. Truett Cathy never compromised his morals for his own success. His restaurant franchise has succeeded operating only six-sevenths of the time of his competitors. This is due to his commitment to keeping the Sabbath. I see this level of commitment in myself. I never take a shortcut that will compromise my morals. Instead, I work for my success the hard way. Last year, I found myself in a class where a large majority of my peers would cheat on quizzes and tests. I worked hard studying my notes and reading my textbook, and fought to make grades similar to theirs. My instructor would curve our quizzes and tests, so it was devastating when there was material
My journey with Chick-fil-A began when I was 16 years of age. Even as a teenager, I understood the value of a dollar thanks to my parent’s direction. I wanted to have the freedom of driving my first car and beginning my financial future. As soon as construction began on Reynolds Road FSR, I recognized I wanted to work there. I completed my application online and delivered it to the trailer marked “Now Hiring” in the parking lot. Little did I fathom that this one act would transform my life forever. Rob Watkins opened the door and asked if I would come in for an interview later that week. I replied “sure” with much excitement. Later that week I went to the interview and Rob hired me on the spot as his first employee. I was ecstatic! The paperwork
Early in life Truett Cathy’s family was beaten financially and emotionally by the Great Depression. His father, an insurance salesman, wasn’t getting a lot of work, so he was going through a tough time. As a result, Cathy looked to his mother for emotional support. It was a rough time for young Cathy but he made do. Since his father wasn’t bringing in a lot of money, his mother also provided financial support for the family. She was renting out the house and taking in boarders. This inspired Cathy to help out too. Cathy helped the family out by selling Coca-Cola, operating a paper route, and performing odd jobs. It was a lot of grueling work Cathy had to do, but he did for his family This got the family through this horrible time. This also gave Cathy a great work
It was crazy how it all started. It started when with me sitting in Koppi Item in Indonesia. I was face timing Amy and she was so excited about her new job at Chick-fil-a. I couldn’t believe it. I was so excited to hear all about it. My family and I were obsessed with that place. I remember asking her to hook it up with a job when I returned home. Little did I know was that I would actually get hired just two days after I returned to the states. I remember sitting down with the hiring manager, Aaron, and being extremely jet lag. Aaron to be honest I thought you were a strange one. I didn’t know if it was cause you were the first American person I was interacting with that I hadn’t just spent 3 months with. Lol. I remember you

The topic of gay marriage is a heavy subject matter with our society. There are two sides to this topic; one, you’re against it, and two, you’re pro same-sex marriage. William J. Bennett, a well known conservative who worked under President Ronald Reagan and President George H. W. Bush, has the belief that same-sex marriage would alter the definition of marriage changing it to something that could potentially cause confusion and chaos within our society, emphasizing why gay marriage should not become legal. Bennett expresses his perspective against same-sex marriage in his article “Against Gay Marriage” and in his book “The Book of Virtues.” Individuals who are pro same-sex marriage presume that homosexual couples are just as equal as heterosexual relationships. Andrew Sullivan, former editor of the New Republic Magazine, argues the point of legalizing same-sex marriage in his article “For Gay Marriage.” Sullivan defines his definition of what marriage is clarifying that marriage is ultimately is a “bond between two people” (Sullivan 30.) While both authors address same-sex marriage, Sullivan focuses more on why same-sex marriage should be legalized, however, Bennett seems more concerned with the negative impact on society same-sex marriage would have.
In final, if I were judging Kim Davis for her actions ethical, I would say she is being unethical because she is not using Joseph Fletchers Christian Situation Ethics because she is not doing or seeing anyone with love. From Gods teaching he wants us all to love one another, well-being a devout Christian as she claims, she isn’t doing so. She is using hate and selfishness to worry about herself.
In late 2012 a gay couple made up of Charlie Craig and David Mullins walked into Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood Colorado with Craig’s mother and a binder of wedding ideas as well as an optimistic attitude. According to the couple when they walked in and asked the baker, Mr. Jack Phillips for a wedding cake following that he asked who it was for. The couple reported that after they said it was for them he denied them a cake because of his religious views which condemn same-sex marriage. The baker did add that he offered them anything else in his shop just not something that would make a “statement” against his beliefs. Now, because of this incident the 7 year anniversary from the time they met was spent in court on December 5th 2017. This
The rights of LGBT community are still currently seeking universal acceptance. Even though the declaration adopted by the United States in 1948 states, "Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration without distinction of any kind ..." has not helped as it does not cover the sexual orientation of an individual. As a result, some countries in the world are developing techniques and systems to begin the legislative favor and enforcing laws that protect LGBTs against discrimination. Even an influential organization like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are joining to finally eliminate discrimination by constantly protecting them against crimes and advancing equal views on each sexuality.
In a competitive world market, businesses must have a thorough understanding of the processes and systems used within the company in order to determine whose interests need to be taken into account when implementing policies and/or programs. This stakeholder analysis is integral to growth and development. For large corporations which have multiple divisions and companies within their corporate structure it is essential to look at all aspects of the business model to identify stakeholders. Establishing the given responsibilities of the various divisions and the direct role they play in the economic success of the firm must also be considered. Many of the largest and most lucrative corporations in the world are those related to supporting military
Marriage equality, a situation where same-sex couples have the same legal right to marry as opposite-sex couples, but it can also be a marriage between two people who practice different religions, or are different races.
