A beautiful hotel with a pool and a great location! You can’t wait to go on your next vacation at a beautiful resort like this, but it is so expensive! Where does all of that money go and who accounts for all of it? How can the hospitality industry be sure the money is going to the right placed? How can a hotel know that an employee isn’t skimming some money off the top? This is where Hospitality accountants come into play.
First let’s figure out exactly what “hospitality” means. Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines hospitality as, “generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests or hospitable treatment.” So the hospitality industry is an industry that caters to this exact type of need. The industry includes a broad category of fields within the service industry and includes lodging, food and drink service, event planning, theme parks, transportation, cruise line, traveling and additional fields within the tourism industry. Obviously, this is a long list of different fields, but they all have one thing in common – each of these fields wants to make the customer happy and feel at home.
After you pay for your room, or your cruise, for example, the money you pay goes onto the hotels books. Continue Reading “Hospitality – Booking a Room is Just the Beginning”
When my boyfriend proposed to me, we both agreed that we did not want a long engagement. We are very traditional, and we wanted to be husband and wife sooner rather than later. We planned the wedding for the summer months, which gave us just over half a year to plan everything. There are a lot of kids in our family, so we did not want the traditional wedding and reception that most wedding days consist of. I did a search for entertainment hire so I could find a company that hires out the different things that we were looking for.
I wanted to have a live band for the adults, but I also wanted plenty of entertainment for the younger guests who would be there. Continue Reading “Wedding Entertainment for All Ages”
The modern internet is necessary for consumers and businesses. When ever expanding data needs are not met that spells trouble for your company. Technology tools that enable everyday functions only go so far. Often times it is important to get the professional opinion of a data consultant to determine the plan for your organization.
Every day we see developments in cyber security and operational requirements that must be overseen by someone trusted in your circle to help navigate the waters with the right planning and execution guidance of your data needs. Historically the evidence shows every year that the speed of technological development increases. This is a computational law and recognition of this fact equals profits to those who can keep up with the changes.
It’s very easy for a company without a data consultant to become outdated and obsolete before they realize it’s too late. Continue Reading “Why You Need a Data Consultant”
I love shopping online because I get such great deals there. Here in my hometown, we have just one main store. If we travel maybe 20 minutes or so, we have two more options. That is how far out we are. Because of this, there is really no competition, so prices can be high on a lot of things. I wanted to buy a leather handbag not that long ago because my old one was fraying pretty badly, but I knew that I would end up paying top dollar if I shopped locally.
I went online to look at a few different sites, and I found a lovely navy leather purse that is the right size. Continue Reading “It is Cheaper to Buy Online”
Crime is not a huge problem where I live. I think the worst that happens is some kids might spray some graffiti on the street from time to time. I cannot say much to that because my friends and I would do the same when we were their age. I am not advocating it, but I do understand it. Even with that being the worst crime that happens, I still wanted to look at Pyronix burglar alarms when my mom bought a house not too far from me. I was not worried about someone attempting to break into my home, but my attitude changes quickly when it comes to my mom.
She lives about a mile away in a small one bedroom cottage. It has a fence around it, but I know that fences don’t keep anything out that want to go in. Continue Reading “It is Cheaper to Install a Security System Myself”

We wanted to do something different for our vacation last year, so we told the kids to all put on their thinking caps. My husband and I did the same, then we discussed what we came up with one week later. All the ideas were great, but our oldest son had the best idea of all of us. He had researched walking holidays in Spain. It was something none of us had heard of before, but he discovered it when he was looking at various destinations to vacation at in Spain.
Our entire family is very active, and we enjoy hiking a lot. We are not professional mountain climbers by any means, but we are definitely not amateurs either. Continue Reading “We Enjoyed Our Walking Holiday”
Last year I opened up a store that sells odd items. I got the idea for the store from a television show about a couple that sold creepy and mysterious items. I figured there had to be a lot of people in my area that had those types of things sitting around in their attics and basements, collecting dust. The store gave them a chance to part with those items, while giving others a chance to buy them. I browsed CCTV systems and had one installed before opening the store, because I had a feeling that it would come in handy.
I get all kinds of people in my store, from normal people, to those that I would classify as weird. They’re all customers to me, and if they can keep my store thriving, then they’re all welcome. I noticed something funny about one of the people who walked into the store one day. Continue Reading “A Weird Man in an Odd Store”
When my sister and I were kids, we used to go out with our dad on the weekends. Sometimes we would fish, and other times we would shoot clay pigeons. Whatever it was, we had a lot of fun. Then, we turned into teens, and hanging out with our friends became more important to us. Now that we are older, we were talking about some of the fun times we had, and we both remembered how much fun shooting the clay pigeons was. I decided to look up clay pigeon shooting lessons to see if there was an instructor close by who would be able to give us a refresher course in it.

My daughter is an incredible artist, and I have used her artistic abilities in my own company. Give her a pencil and paper, and she can seemingly make characters she draws come alive. Some of her drawings are on billboards around town, and they make me proud every time I see them. When she told me that she had done some work for another company that involved using a business that does motion graphics in Singapore, she was really quite animated herself. She told me that while her drawings for my own company are great in the two dimensional world, she thought that this company could make them three dimensional and much more interesting.
