A Response to 'Are You Retired, or Do You Work?'

"I want to be one of those seniors who's had a relatively easy time. Now, that doesn't always happen. As I found out with my hernia surgery and my hip replacement and my COVID and I guess COVID is an age related. Yesterday I was kind of curious about this condo building that's being built in St. Petersburg. And it's being spearheaded by John catsimatidis in New York, who's the really amazing businessman. He owns the supermarket chain. And he bought WABC radio. Prior to buying WABC radio, he worked a lot with the station we're on in New York. I am 9 70. The answer. I went over to check out their building this the biggest building on the West Coast of Florida. It's going to be like, I think 60 stories tall. And I was just kind of curious. I've never, I would never buy a condo sight unseen. I mean, they do this slick sales pitch where they beautiful artist renderings and everything and the model. I'm thinking, you know, the guy and the guy was good. And he asked me not knowing what I do for a living. Are you retired? Or do you work? I almost broke out in tears. I almost started crying. I was like, who the heck are you? What do you mean am I retired? Do I look like I'm retired, kid? Is about this 30 something year old guy? Are you retired or do you work, mister Gallagher? No, I work, pal. And I'll be working long after you're gone. 'cause I get cats and Matias to fire your butt because you're asking people they're old.

'The Adversaries' Author Ned Ryun on the Idea of a National Divorce

"Greatness, senior fellow Ned Ryan author of the adversaries a story of Boston and bunker hill. Ned, welcome to Mike Gallagher show. Yeah, no great to be with you slicked her. Oh, well, it is great to be with me. I'm amazing, said the modest Los Angeles trial lawyer. Hey, you've got a terrific book here. The adversaries. I've read it. I loved it. And frankly, I cribbed a little bit about bunker hill, the battle of bunker hill for my upcoming book, the fallen rise of the United States. We've been talking about a national divorce. This was kind of a divorce 250 years ago. Marjorie Taylor Greene's tweeting about it, what do you think of the concept? I got to tell you, kirkus, I think there's two options. One is the national divorce. I mean, we're looking at two very divergent world views on how you approach governments, inherent rights, which honestly occurred is not something new. I mean, this is when you look at the genesis of the progressive movement early 20th century, they were always attacking inherent rights, all of these things. And now it's coming to full fruition. So you've got the national divorce angle or an angle that I also like as well in which we beat them into submission enforcement unconditional surrender. So I think that I love when you talk like that. Makes me want to have a cigarette in a cuddle.

How I Stopped Feeling Inadequate and Comparing Myself to Others by Vironika Tugaleva of Vironika.org

"I used to feel like a never be successful. Like never measure up to the accomplishments of the people around me right. After i first began coaching and speaking i spent much of my daily life comparing myself to people i consider successful and i never measured up. Go on website after website. Feeling my heart sink as i wondered. How will i ever be able to do this. How can i ever get people to listen to what i am saying. What if i'll always be. Nobody would if no one cares. What if i'm not good enough. The shame was overwhelming and so was the anxiety. After i quit my day job and became even worse i left my career of study. Mayfield either excelled academically and professionally to pursue a passion. That left me feeling inadequate and insignificant. I was too young too inexperienced to unguarded to unqualified. I wasn't slick enough sexy enough or well dressed enough. I was just me and for a while there. That was a painful reality. I fought these demons in my head secretly as i tried to share a message of love. I followed my constant sense of inadequacy as a coach as an author as a people helper back. Then i didn't see that as judging my work the same way i once judge my body i thought i'd made huge leaps and myself love journey and i had i wasn't on learning yet close to a year ago. I had an epiphany. I was invited to come on television my first ever appearance on tv to talk about my story and the love mindset. I wrote about my experiences at the time for now. Just summarize a story for you very simply. I'll terrified then. i had an epiphany. It was the kind of epiphany that felt good. But it didn't hit me hard. Some tiffany's make your eyes alight up and you know that they're changing your entire life. No this wasn't like that. This is the kind of tiffany that feels nice. Be don't realize his life changing until you look back and see that everything is different. was this. This is not about me. It's about the people i help. My job is not to be successful. My job is to serve. That is how i succeed. That little tiffany cleanse all work related anxiety out of my mind day by day as i reoriented my sense of purpose in the world

Want to be somewhere else. So he still people travel. But it's just of course is the booking window. It's for sure. And i'm even doing the same thing with vacation. Rentals you know. The girlfriend and her family wanted to go to leavenworth for the weekend. So like we're randomly just picking up last minute days and times to to go do these things so I've got yeah like hotels constant like it's never been for me. It's always been like there's always those spur of the minute trips as a traveler. You're going to see but Going into the vacation rental side too. I think like i was captured on airbnb. And we're like all right. We're gonna go for this day. And i'm seeing a lot more properties even now except like one night stays there was a lot. They're like oh do tonight minimum or whatever so now but now. Hey we'll take anything come in for the night. They're starting to let their guard down a little bit but It's been interesting to watch like both being in the industry and consumer Bastard they had a question regarding for leo in a golden lab for this pent-up like party anticipation right. Where that we're expecting i like. What are you guys expecting like predicting anything for like win. Like vaccine is open or like the government is like all right. We're we're going back to normal in the sense of not having to stay at home and be locked down..

So i kind of knew instantly joining going home where we needed to be in terms of making sure we eating with risk but we see all principal fight because it's being a protection so that means paying out claims for damages liability Just removing risk factors in the first place so problem with people like noise and also creating our own tools which is a super hulk to make sure we can reduce the risk by basically getting old guest to go through an id verification database check before they book to make sure that not a problem guests. That's had a policy or kohls. Liberal damage will trash vacation rental place before they come and that's awesome Does god how tech is the company sits above it. that's the insurance risk management sue balkans the product the idea being that we can help property managers endara host.

One another it can do the guests screening on the front side of the booking before the guests arrives. It's not a hundred percent certain you're gonna catch the person trying to throw a party or even it just gets too drunk and makes decisions that they wouldn't normally make.

That's important to you because it is. It's constantly evolving space for. I guess the second one i would say is for the audience out there. Listening are the technology vendors property managers other stakeholders in the space. Still contact us and reach out. We need to find the experts out there. We haven't found you yet. We wanna talk to you. And it's an interesting conversation with property managers. Because they're left to educate their homeowners potentially on insurance. That's that's a good one. We'd love for them to refer them to us for that. We wanna be able tiv- bridge that gap on education across the board. So yeah i. I was We were talking about this before. The recording is like a lot of property managers and listen so if you're probably listens bring your owners to extra obviously get them educated and and the idea to that these homeowners you know want that want property managers. We do need to figure out how to bridge that gap the homeowners can come on then figure out what they need to do to navigate finding a management company. That's right for them so we've talked. Vr may and we're going to continue to kind of work through that because there's definitely some overlap and synergies.

"And I always do the same example, you know, when I started it back in ninety-nine as a receptionist. There was a lot of human connection because you had to manage such a low level of technology that all the time you've read was spent with the guests. I can tell you I still have friends that I met in your tail. They were guests of mine until like twenty years ago. Yeah and over the through the years we kind of lost that because receptionist and brought up his manager general managers. Well, they started focusing more on things such as taking care of reservations not inserting information into the PMS checking the channel manager checking the checking Bays, etc. Etc. And so I think we lost that human touch if you can remove the logistic of travel, like if you can have a machine taking care of the logistics of travel like everything from PMS to checking in checking out people excetera. You can get these people to do something. Better and something more useful. So I think you can actually bring the human touch back by improving your technology stack.

"Is kind of a unique opportunity for the podcast that will do a lot of vacation rental stuff a lot of hotels, but actually interview somebody on the ground. In the middle of the pandemic specially in a big. Like Chicago is pretty cool. I'm excited to have you on the show on big brain a little bit and see where where the conversation where lead with. Just the the ship in hospitality especially especially with big name brand like the sheriffs. So again. Thank you for being on the show. My man are you guys in Chicago Yeah Doing? Alright we're kind of in the last. Week of summer here it's a great temperature outside and yet just didn't enjoy in Chicago right now but as he said, there's a, there's a lock on the pandemic has certainly impacted our business. So excited to share a little bit about that and how it's impacting our business your conversation. Eric Tammy too. So Marcus, let's dive in. I always love to just get the meat of the episode and you are. So who is Marcus? What do you do and how did you get to where you are today? Awesome. Yeah. jump right in. So as said, the doctor sales marketing for the hotel also your the showed Grand Chicago I'm responsible for overseeing all sales marketing efforts. Were about one hundred and twenty million dollar business. So really my responsibility falls on achieving that annual revenue for the hotel I. Think I mentioned to you at one point earlier on you know sometimes when people? When I tell people what I do they say Oh, so you you book weddings. And Yeah, you know in some regard yes that's certainly one avenue we love to host. Large wedding sear at the hotel but we also with a lot of large associations and hosting annual events, big exhibitions but then you also we have such a great location here in downtown Chicago that were really ideal prime location for travel and business travel. So there's a lot of different avenues. Of ways that we reach in help to support people through their means of travel. Yeah and just to give the slick talkers perspective of the property how big is your property rooms square footage event space you know all that stuff yeah. So twelve hundred eighteen rooms were how one of the largest hotels here in Chicago and over one hundred, twenty, five, thousand square feet of as events so as I said. We can do events as large as up to four thousand people a little bit different right now and these. Were on the fifty person Limits, but can't wait to your back to getting people intentionally close again someday soon. Yes. Yeah and with the right you know procedures in place and. It's just it's so crazy especially with big spaces I think you know we we talk so much on the show about vacation rentals and hotels, and all these like certain things I've been impacted by the the virus and and just the way the new norm is but I don't think we actually talk about like the much like the the wedding venues and the places that people gather you know others there's gathering places like lobbies in restaurants, but legit gathering spaces like base or convention center or whatever Yeah I think that honestly taken the biggest impact from this whole thing. Yeah, it really has through all. The crisis is in some ways I think if that's the way to describe it that have happened over the decades, there's never been one quite like this that has. Prevented us from being able to be close to one another Most of the situations that have impacted our business have been more primarily financially driven, and so it's no caused a little bit of a bump. But this you know restricting US feed able to meet get together. That certainly took a big toll that I don't think that people quite realize how big of an impact the hospitality industry has on. Our. Especially, United States are our economy. Yeah. Seriously economy just our neighborhood in general. You think about Chicago is a whole. That's a big city with a lot of people and as a lot of jobs as a lot of. Families and mouths to feed and there, and so it's it really does take a big impact especially on her name in our our local area. I do WanNa ask that Kinda what how did you get into the industry like how did you start off in hospitality and then was your journey look like leading up from your winning to where you are. Yeah. So I'll say I in some ways. I feel like I've always been a little bit in. Some form of hospitality I grew up on a farm. In Iowa and we were and all organic farm raised through everything that was part of our kind of sustainable living. In through that I as a young.

"This episode. He's kind of like the Joe Rogan of a hostile industry. Right now are right. Welcome back to Slick Talk Hospital podcasts. Everybody I'm your host will slickers and today I have David Grossman from renew systems out in Chicago. S Right. We're just outside of the wonderful city. Excellent wall go ahead and introduce yourself Who are your background and what you are what you what you do currently avenue. Well we'll thank you nice to be here to all the listeners of my name is David Grossman. I company called renew systems that is been in existence since nineteen ninety one. We started out as a general cleaning company Outside of Chicago and one day came across a hotel and ever since then in our primary focus so we handle deep cleaning services so typically not the the third shift janitorial or housekeeping but rather than the periodic More intensive project-based cleaning to dress almost any need inside and even outside the hotel ranging from the carpets in the hallways drake's the furniture and the gas rose grout and swimming pool decks. Were good at restoring and polishing marble and other stone and then so many specialty needs now a tells odors and stains cooking issues a smoking issues and then we Over the years broadened our service go a number of specialty needs whether they're stains in the carpets or chandelier cleaning mattress cleaning A new services replacement of mattresses recycling mattresses so a very wide variety of services that we take care of me. Now have a thirty locations across the company Across the country and in five other countries we operate primarily as a franchise model where we have one company locations leverage a one in Chicago. So we use that to test new services and to have a real good pulse of the business and in the other offices are owned and operated by a buyer franchisees. You come to us with a wide variety of backgrounds but We think they have the right skill set and importantly personality that fits well with our culture in providing a lot of training and ongoing support. So that's what we do our preferred vendor with many of the big brands. So we take care of limited select service in in a number of the The full service properties In the Throughout our thirty offices the big brands as well as a lot of independent boutique properties too. That's awesome. I love the the fit of the cleaning services that go into stuff that obviously housekeeping and maintenance can't hit all the time has really hard especially when you try to do like stuff like that yearly or bi yearly so. I think that's pretty awesome. Because I just sends off that that relief of extra duty for the staff and so Have you been with the company since Nineteen ninety-one or what's your kind of a start with renew no I I joined in in twenty ten. There was one time a change in ownership so I came in then That the the with passes Boehner left by the founder on remained in the rest of the team and south minute that quite a bit prior to a two thousand ten I was. I spent time in management consulting and then in private equity in for many of those years. I was looking for a company that I could get involved with. A very intensive AH level ownership in operating and Was Very Selective. Took the better part of ten years in eventually found renew and then just put my head down along with our management team and we just got to work doing a lot of little things to support our franchisees and try to keep relative business. And now we've had some good success since then some of it for reasons beyond our control but I think the the teich focus has been a critical of factor in our success.

Like I'm always about direct bookings and in I think your telling me a little of a story beforehand that year so yeah it'd be nine the scenes we were talking a little bit and you know. I think because of you know how long I've been in the industry industry. I have some stories once upon a time as I told you the guy called me up on the phone when I was managing a hotel and and I think I was the assistant manager. Okay property and he said Hey if you give me ten rooms also for you guys probably expedient okay. Oh yeah that's what what happens. That's what it was back them and and so we used to do business but now we do it a little bit differently and and the the OTAS has some good value for our guests. We recognize that we partner with them. We're in a market. That has a good presence isn't for. Ota's online travel agents as we call yes on some some my call him you know sees or audios organization but Yeah so partnerships are important for us It's important for our guests We have We have our rate parity parody with them. So whether you book here at the hotel directly here you're a royal loyalty program member book directly with us. Are you go online. You're GONNA find the same rate will match rate yet. And that's what the brands do. Excellent I want to go too much of your time because I know my story. Oh I do I do buy WanNa hear your mostly the craziest or funnest or most memorable full moment and the industry from from your time of a service life had a few I you know I I think I mentioned I've had the pleasure of hosting postings dignitaries US presidents yeah and some sports figures you know basketball players Shaquille O'Neal and and login vet for him would you invent for him What we yeah that that takes back to Grading the eight foot debt I call it the NBA debt the eight feet in length because wound when I got to this hotel we were hosting NBA teams and our regular kings things or or too short. If you're seven six you don't fit in so I went and contract with the bed manufacturer and and they created a twelve hundred quail topic. Eight foot bed for me and I was the first one that heavy for beds in the in the Portland market and and that was that was pretty good stuff and the NBA team. You know they really enjoyed that. Their feet were dangling the whole time. There's yeah even even the six foot five guys created that in in I've had the pleasure meeting some Nice Actors there's an actress and my most memorable moment was Morgan Freeman Morgan. Freeman was filming in in the city that I was in and and we had dinner together and saw what an original guy. I really enjoyed that and and that was nice memory for me. Yeah so it's it's. It's a great industry. It's an industry that you never know who's GonNa walk in now where they're going to be at and who's who's passing through and and we treat everybody the same whether you're you're represented a country are just yourself in I. I believe in you know taking care of yes is the answer was the question. What's the question? Yeah Yeah that's my philosophy and and that's what what I like to see happen with my team members properties and so. That's what I'm about awesome. Well I just really want to say thank you for your time and appreciate it. I think this is really just fun to chat about the experience in the background of what most people don't really get to see or hear about specially with you know imagine companies and owners and Franchisees and all that stuff and of course dinners with Morgan Freeman so advocate stuff.

Yeah now we're fourteen hundred hotels worldwide the largest third party hotel management company in the world. Yeah and Tom Hi pleasure working with Ambridge here to manage this This financing for Red Lion Awesome so getting back to again my my story I started out the young man many years ago and and Work for a company that was then called Vance hotels which became west coast hotels els and and coastal tells them and I I worked with them for over thirty years. Yeah helping them out and and How many people Started well when I was there in the corporate office there were four of us. Who Have you including US secretary? Well we call them the secretary back then and now. Her name was Wendy. And so I had to find a building company At that time and then I landed myself at their flagship property and in Portland Oregon. Okay yeah I was there for seventeen years and I got a lot of a lot of fun stories with that town not too far from where I am seaside. So that's right that's right you're over there and see site to make it a little stop over on the way that's awesome and So I retired from them. Okay for a couple years. I had a grandson. I wanted to spend some time with yes friend of mine said hey you wanna come work for interstate which is now ambridge and I said Okay and I came back and manage the Crown Plaza in Lake Oswego were given up a lot of Eight months ago so I came here to full circle. Full circle right around awesome awesome well. I'm curious just kind of impromptu question but was was it like going from a branded a hotel like a I H G with the Crown Plaza and then to maybe like the management style the management company style is. Is it for us with your experience. Kind of curious. You brands or brands. Yeah I g Red Wine Marianne. He'll coach now. They all have their way of doing things. And what they WANNA represent And you have your compliance with the with the different brands. The management is as you know behind the scenes. Were the ones working that the asset for the owner. A lot of times you have you'll have an owner of a hotel and and you'll have a a brand flag as we call it. Yes and then the management company so you have three entities that are involved with the property like this one. Yeah and so Oh hell yeah I answer to a lot of people say a lot of hands in hot the the most important person I answered to again. Yes yes yeah so. I have of a lot of working with the guests and actually the associates here. I believe in in good foundations good associates and supporting associate so so they can do their job and take care of the guests definitely. Yeah that's what the podcast about we talk about all the time. So that's awesome somewhere to refer to it as it was actually put together through through Harvard's called service profit chain service sweat service profit chain okay. It's the foundation. Is You know work work with the associates. Take care of the associates them take care of the guests and the end result is good stuff. Yes awesome as sanctuary successful. Then it's been it's been successful. One in there is that I've I've got involved with and I'm happy day in honor to be here. Excellent well So what we can jump into. The the brand is for our else about the experiences about the guests. It's about kind of creating the come visit. Visit US kind of feel where where. I'm kind of curious with This property is specifically. What under remodel? Three years ago three discovery created this new book Put this together a guest rooms and public spaces and Yeah you got sweating here in New York the coffee bar the bicycles and awesome. And so that's that's what you know hotels you they they. They put money aside so that they can you know improve their partner assets or properties continue to be successful when the markets in awesome. Well I guess some behind the scenes type of stuff. What is a I guess for a lot of the listeners that we have with the podcast there all either very a young and hungry in the industry They're either very experienced or they're just kind of dabbling in restaurants or whatever else. There may be in in hotels and hospitality. What's a piece of advice that you'd think from the thirty five years you could pass down any of the forty eight thousand listening this month? While the Westerners opt their view hospitality is a fun exciting industry in part would say the listeners out there I think that Every day is different. Yes if you want routine in you want something to same everyday this is not yeah. Don't do this Sunday hotels. This is your wake up in the good morning and you start your day and and you know you got a plan. Yeah but you know the plan's GonNa vary because you have a lot of moving parts and so it's an exciting industry I I I love what I do. You've got to like people. Yes people were the biggest part of this. Say That's probably what makes things change so much got so many different personalities and different travel all arrangements and all sorts of things going on that you do to prepare for this hotel we get guests that come in and actually you know mostly Canada. Yeah this is. This is the capital of the state. And so we got a lot of people coming to do business in Olympia. But also we're we're right next to some some you know some pretty good attractions like the greenforce okay. People come here and they want to go up there and camp and hike and his midway between Portland Oregon and in Seattle Washington and so it's a good stopping point for an ice Arnuhar and a good stays good place to stay and we've got twelve acres. Okay here ground. So we're we're we're pretty nice. Little resort yeah. I don't know that he's necessarily exciting. Yeah we have sixteen thousand square feet of meeting spaces. Twelve groups okay. Yeah we can do parties at Tanner. Six hundred well I know. There's a lot of businesses right around the corner all over the place right. When you pull in and saw kind of noticing that the the business traveler's probably heavy here we get some good? We're good fortune with some business travel so and one hundred ninety three rooms here of this are okay. It's a good size full-service cow with the restaurant and bar. Yeah the coffee. Best Part my favorite So I guess for the brand itself A lot of Hotel chains and brands and all sorts of affiliates. They have a rewards program. And I'm just kinda curious to begin just a little bit about the Helo rewards. You know a lot of Mary. I'm very familiar with I started out as a Marriott employees and myself and so you know silver platinum or silver goal platinum August stuff so most of the hotels that are branded Brandin. Loyalty points program..
