Wisdom Nuggets

  • What it takes to build a successful hospitality business: Jason shared some of the main things that helped build a successful business. He emphasised the significance of three primary elements: Word of mouth (build your community), Social media, and Community building (Collaborating with some other business owner or company). 

  • Know your audience: Jason revealed his initial policies for one of his businesses, such as not having a TV and DJ stationed there. However, he had to make some adjustments based on his customers’ interests. Recognizing the importance of meeting their needs and ensuring their comfort, he embraced change rather than turning a blind eye to their preferences. Knowing your audience/customers helps you to know how to serve them better.

  • Start with the end in mind: If you start with the end in mind from the beginning (organizing, structuring, implementing), you're going to be set up for success. This proactive mindset ensures that you lay a solid foundation, enabling you to navigate challenges more smoothly and achieve your desired outcomes earlier rather than finding yourself in a state of scrambling to figure things out down the line.
