Hospitality & Business Class

  • Syllabus Day of #WealthClass is Understanding what the daily life of running and operating a store with employees.

  • Freshmen Class: Learning about the basics of business Even just the basics of business can be confusing at first, get up to speed with what I have learned from school and experience.

    • Businesses, stores, restaurants, and hotels have about the same structure with the end goal to make customers happy so they come back and give you more money.​

    • This information is important to understand when owning or managing or just when trying to get to know an industry.

  • Sophomore Class: Employees the forgotten fruit.

    • We have all been employees, but some managers and owners have forgotten that and haven't adapted to caring for them because they can make or break a business overnight.

    • A successful business always has a successful owner or manager, that doesn't mean wealth, but it means the knowledge of both book smarts and reality of the beast. The best companies I have worked for understood both, but most all of them only understood books (Those restaurants failed...) Keeping in mind if your book smart, turn to the reality of how things work and get dirty first before teaching  

  • Junior Class: Operations Hell all of this is the same, but it is always talked about like it is so unique to the company, when in reality it is not. It is however extremely important to understand and perform so learn it here. 

    • Every business needs a formula to run and make money and the successful ones have figured it out and it is all similar. What makes some businesses more successful is from two things. From understanding and adapting to strengthen the journey of the future business while appreciating the now and the people who are running it.

    • The old school way of being a tough ass is over unfortunately so adapt to caring and getting your hands dirty.   

  • Senior Class: Getting Paid being relevant and adapting is huge and should be taken seriously. The markets are saturated and you are here to make things better every year and give value to your customers. If you fail in that department, you will most likely fail all around. 

    • When I say relevancy I am talking about your product, structure, marketing, and planning to save what you can, and make more when possible. I can teach you to avoid somethings I have experienced and how to focus on things that work. 

I am not held responsible if you actually don't care and can't balance your life and think that you are doing everything. These steps are meant to guide you to focus better, not to hold your hand to achieve it. First step is to actually care.
