For about a year now, I have had a strong desire to share the outrageous stories and happenings of people.
While we all have a little bit of crazy in us, I believe some tip the scale at a ten, while others mellow around a one or two. It’s those tens that really get me. I wonder what they are thinking, what their reasoning is, and most of all how they have survived this long.
I started a job at a beach resort that I would grow to love and enjoy, and I realized these people were everywhere. They came from all over the world – Crazy doesn’t have a country of origin. It doesn’t have an age. It can occasionally be blamed on alcohol, but otherwise it’s just plain entertaining.
While it is amusing, I also learned more than I ever did in college in just one year at a beach resort (Not to discount my higher education, for that was immensely helpful, too). From learning how to sell a room, to what I should do if chaos erupts or how to give people a positive answer when you’re really telling them no – I obtained much and still have a long way to go. I believe a lot of these principals can apply to the hospitality industry as well as anyone running a business or working with customers.
My intention is to share these insights with you, so you can perform better at work, gain more confidence in your abilities, and approach situations knowing you can solve any problem (even if no one has encountered it before).
Please share your ideas with me – Stories – Insights and Advice. I’d love to hear from you.
