Hotels, Short-Term Rentals, and Everything in Between Can Grow Together

Josiah Mackenzie joined me in Denver to record this episode in person and I couldn’t have walked away from a more refreshing conversation. This episode is dedicated to the heart and spirt of hospitality for all type of brands, businesses, and operators out there.

Josiah’s career in hospitality started working the front desk at a small property on the California coast. From there, he built a hotel marketing website which eventually 70,000+ hoteliers used each month to learn how to increase demand for their properties. Josiah wanted to learn how to turn demand into revenue, so spent a few years at a revenue management technology company before spending the past few years working with hotel owners and hospitality real estate investors at Juniper Square. But it was during the years he spent helping to build what became one of the biggest hotel operations technology companies in the world (ReviewPro, 60,000+ hotels) that he learned something that has stuck with him since: operations is the most important part of a hotel business today.
