Hospitality career success

I think I took the right path, I wouldn’t want to change anything. I have done what I did, at the time it was right for me. I think you have to follow a little bit, that’s probably the female part, you have to follow your heart, you have to know what you want and then go for it. And I have been lucky throughout my career to actually have also had people who supported me, so mentors who then saw what I was about and they challenged me and they brought me into other positions and that’s how my career developed. And it’s also a little bit bringing yourself in and do what you like to do. That’s, I think that’s the main thing, don’t let ego get in front of you, I think that’s a little bit, well into today’s world what is probably also part of it. But ego has nothing to do with it, it’s just if you find something that you like to do, then do it, do it with your whole heart and you will further yourself there. You don’t have to really try to climb, climb, climb, it will come automatically, even in today’s world, because there will be people outside who recognise the strength that you bring to the table.
