Inspirational, educational, and chock full of tips and tricks to familiarize yourself with the inner workings of the hospitality industry—including links to online videos to supplement your learning—this book puts financial literacy at your fingertips.
There’s a common belief in the hospitality industry that the financials are best left to professionals who can sort out the complex interplay between the different departments of a hotel. This idea is just a myth—one you can bust wide open with The Prosperous Hotelier. Having confidence and knowledge around the financials is the key to a successful hotel career and—to a very large extent—your own personal prosperity.
This book is about the business of hotels. It’s written for two groups:
• non-financial people who want to become leaders with business mojo
• financial leaders and managers who want to bring everyone in their hotel into the loop
When everyone’s on board, everything runs more smoothly and we’re all part of something bigger and better—together.
This book shows you not just how to get comfortable with the numbers, but how to dance with them. It’s inspirational, educational and chock full of tips and tricks to familiarize yourself with the inner workings of the hospitality industry—including links to online videos to supplement your learning. The Prosperous Hotelier puts financial literacy at your fingertips!
