meet my circle of friends...
these are the people who get me through the work week. they are all general managers of hampton inns across north carolina, and they are always a phone call or an email away when i need them.
this week, i had the opportunity to visit on of my friends and do a mock quality assurance inspection on his(beautiful)hotel. it gave his team a chance to make sure they are ready for the "real thing" whenever that pops up. (they will be outstanding, by the way!)
while he maintains that my visit was for their benefit, i honestly believe i received a gift as well. the role of "general" manager can be extremely stressful (think of all the crazy things that can fall into the "general" category... somedays it can be like the perfect storm!) visiting a friend from my "circle" gave me chance to vent, share ideas, inspire others and be inspired.
to my circle, "the breakfast club." THANK YOU!!
