Stoicism, the ancient Greek school of philosophy, resonates today more than ever. It maintains that your thoughts and beliefs create the world you inhabit, not external circumstances, so you need to take responsibility for your mind. Find out in this episode how this can be applied directly to hospitality.

We are joined by Jamie Ryder, Founder Of Stoic Athenaeum, who has a philosophy-led approach to his content marketing business. Tune in as we discuss learning to suffer less, three practices all leaders need to apply, and the power of journaling. He shares plenty of nuggets and resources, so check them out in the show notes below.
