Things are tough right now for most industries.

I spoke with Danny Meyer, New York City Restaurateur and Best Selling Author, about what the real estate industry can learn from the restaurant industry.

Danny has a formula with his business that I think you all should adapt immediately.

Being the best at what you do, having the best idea and working the hardest in the past were the secret sauces, today they are no longer enough.

In his words, “It only gets you to the 49 yard line.”

The way you get the other 51 yards is directly related to the way you make your customers feel.

Danny’s new book is entitled Setting the Table: The Transforming Power of Hospitality In Business and is available on Amazon.

I hope you enjoy this quick 2 minute interview with Danny Meyer and if you have any questions let us know!
