Transcript from the Episode
The hospitality industry is like no other. I don’t know any other industry in the world where you can start a business, put a couple of pictures on one or two websites and be guaranteed to bring in revenue and buckets. This is a blessing, but it’s also a curse. It’s a blessing that you have guaranteed to get revenue. But it’s a curse because you are over-reliant on one or two websites to bring in your business and run your business.
Don’t over rely
I’m talking about Airbnb booking.com and VRBO. The problem is, is that when you over rely on another business to bring in your revenue, then you are building your house on someone else’s land, Airbnb booking.com, VRBO just like a funnel snap. I’ve got the ability to take away your business and your livelihood. And you may be wondering why this is a problem. Why will this affect you?
