General Management

By: Annissa Lemon

Becoming Successful.

Growing up and staying in hotels that my dad managed was always exciting. Being able to watch what he did, how he was able to handle things that were problematic, and how he was able to make such big decisions that can have a big effect in the hotel always caught my attention. Now that I am older, and I am able to understand more of the things that he does, the general management field interests me even more. It may be a difficult job, but I know that in the end it all will pay off being a manager of a successful business.
