Climbing to the Peak

peakcover1.jpgJeffrey interviews Chip Conley, founder and CEO of Joie de Vivre Hospitality Group.

USA Today called Chip one of the “14 People to Watch” in 2001 along with Julia Roberts and Disney’s Michael Eisner.

TIME magazine wrote that “few boutique hotels are as genuine as those run by Joie de Vivre ” who now operate over 40 hospitality businesses in California making it California’s largest independent hotelier.

Chip has won numerous awards including Guerrilla Marketer of the Year from the American Travel Marketing Executives, Emerging Growth Company of the Year from the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, National Humanitarian Hospitality Company of the Year, Northern California Entrepreneur of the Year from Ernst & Young, and the Experience Stager of the Year at a conference in Las Vegas in which Joie de Vivre beat out competition that included Disney, Cirque de Soleil, and Ian Schrager Hotels.

The hospitality industry offers countless opportunities every day to give great service to life with joyful energy.

As Chip himself says: “you are where you sleep.”

A great truism as many spiritual masters have said, there is no past or future – just the eternal present of now, and half of it you will spend sleeping!

Listen to an amazing man talk about his life and work and how they are really one in his consciousness as he gives back to the world in a big way.
