Hospitality Mavericks

by Michael Tingsager

We wanted to show there was another way to build and lead businesses. So Hospitality Mavericks was born. We wanted to gather together the world’s Mavericks who do things differently from the norm. They are leaders from all walks of life who have shown and proven that there is a better way forward without cashing out on their values; ripping off their people, community and planet. That was over ten years ago. Since then we've worked with and interviewed more than 200 leaders, thinkers and experts on the best way to build a business that makes a positive impact on all stakeholders. We are the home to impactful leaders that KNOW and DO things in a better way. A network for those seeking a different path. So don’t just be like the others! Dare to Be Different ✊

It is not how many books you read…​…but the ability to implement the ideas from the book to enhance your life and business.​I used to read over 40 books a year.​But retained any of the information and saw a small impact.​So, I established a rule: before starting a new book, I had to write at least five to ten bullet points summarising the key takeaways from the current one.​As a result, I started to read fewer books, but I learned more and saw improvements!​This year, I've decided to revisit...

We are back in the arena. This time of the year, I set big goals and ambitions for the year ahead and beyond.​🎯Goals are, in my view, a picture of a perfect world in the future.​But life and business are not perfect.​You are not always in control of what happens in life and business.​That can side-track you from reaching your goals.​You might lose hope, faith, energy and confidence.​It happens to me.​Well-defined goals are essential, but the real magic happens daily in those repeatable...
