Hospitality Mavericks Podcast Show


A new school of thought.

Moving your business from where it is now to where you want it to be is one of the greatest quests of being a leader.

Most leaders don’t really give this the time and focus needed to make their businesses great.

They follow the old outdated way of leading and growing their businesses because it feels easier.

But you and your business can be so much more.

We imagine a world where leaders KNOW how to build businesses that DO more than make a profit.

They make a positive impact on people, communities and the planet.

They dare to be different.
