This is a question I am often asked, and was the motivation for my writing of the book “Your Full Guide to Owning & Operating a Hospitality Property – Successfully”.
As a travel authority with decades of hotel, resort, inn and bed & breakfast visitation experience, I wanted to share my expertise and knowledge with current and potential hospitality property owners and manager who do not have the benefit of a ready-made organizational structure, branding and marketing that chain properties provide.
If you’re not sure you might benefit from this book, let me ask you a couple of questions.
- Is the idea of being your own boss sound appealing to you?
- Is the thought of sharing your corner of the world with guests intriguing?
- Have you ever thought about owning or operating your own independent hotel, resort, inn or bed & breakfast, but were not sure the steps to take to ensure success?
- Do you currently own a property and are looking for ways to increase your bookings and profit?
If you have answered YES to any of these questions, this book is for you.
In this book, I will share with you more than just quick-fix tactics but instead how to develop successful long-term operation methods.
For easy use, this book is divided into four separate series.
Series #1 – Your Hospitality Property Organizational Structure
Series #2 – Employee Development
Series #3 – Marketing for Your Hospitality Properties Success
Series #4 – How Do You See Your Property
In this book, you will have access to 47 chapters of proven methods for the operation of a successful hospitality property, plus 64 links to resources, charts, diagrams, lists, checklists, forms and pdfs to help your property grow.
I cover such topics as how to set up your organizational & management strategy, how to create an operation manual, how to develop the right mindset, hiring & training employees, dealing with customers, marketing strategies that work and how to develop your property.
You will learn to stay two steps ahead of your competition, increase your bookings and patronage while enjoying a fun & fulfilled life as a hotelier/innkeeper.
If you have dreams of becoming a successful independent hotel, resort, inn or bed & breakfast proprietor, this book is designed to get you started and to grow your business.
