Another great post from +Seth Godin . I always say, if you are reading him every morning, you are missing out!
We can choose to define ourselves (our smarts, our brand, our character) on who rejects us. Or we can choose to focus on those that care enough to think we matter. Carrying around a list of everyone who thinks you're...

From time to time, I'll post some of the feedback from the NPS system, especially when it highlights the good work the Front Desk and Housekeeping Teams are doing.

Feedback text: My wife and I had a great time. I appreciated the warmth and kindness of the staff. We would definitely rather stay there than at a hotel. Thank you for the warm hospitality.
Stars: 5 out of 5

About 3 months ago, we were introduced to a fantastic new tool for small businesses to measure their Net Promoter Scores. This is something that is normally only available to big companies and it's how they measure their customer satisfaction. It's been an amazing tool and a fantastic way for us to stay in touch with what our customers think of our business. I'm very proud to say that The All Seasons Collection has an NPS of 74! That's a fantastic score. Thank you to all of our guests that have provided feedback!

Congratulations to my friend +Enrica Rocca! Her cookbook, Venice on a Plate... but what a Plate just won Best in the World for 2014! What a major accomplishment and so well deserved. She is simply amazing! If you ever get a chance to spend the day with her at her cooking schools in Venice or London, don't pass it up - it's an experience you will never forget! Check out her book here

Who's holding the umbrella on your team? Another great post by +Seth Godin 
Harry Truman talked about where the buck stops. For every project, for every organization that lasts, someone is holding the umbrella. She's the one on the hook if things don't go well. She's the one who doesn't walk away from...

One of Fredericksburg's best restaurants. The decor is contemporary and beautiful with rotating works of art by local artists. The food is fresh and superbly prepared by Chef/Owner Leu Savanh. They fly in fresh fish weekly for their sushi bar and the menu never disappoints. They've started running weekly special events on Sunday that I have fallen in love with. So much fun, don't miss this one.

We stayed in one of the residences on the hill and I have to tell you it was one of the best vacations of my life. Little Dix Bay is phenomenal. The staff is quietly there to take care of your every need. The beaches are amazing and the water is unlike anywhere else I have ever been. The whole island was just quiet and perfect - no cruise ships here!

We traveled to Virgin Gorda with some friends and stayed at Little Dix Bay. They have been many times and told us we had reservations at the best restaurant on the island. I laughed when we walked up, because it doesn't look like a top restaurant from the outside, but WOW. Did I ever eat my words, and happily. This restaurant is absolutely fantastic! Service was spot on and the food is amazing. Don't be fooled by the outside, once you walk in, it's lovely and Rose the owner is a delight!
