Larry Broughton, Former Special Forces and Hotel Entrepreneur Asks For Help…

April 8, 2020

Ep # 207 - In this special BONUS episode of the show, I'm joined by a former special forces operative in the Army's Green Berets, a keynote speaker for companies like Toyota, Walmart, and The Wounded Warrior Project, and a mentor to thousands of entrepreneurs, Larry Broughton.

This episode was originally recorded as an Instagram LIVE with the intention of sharing what's happening with Larry's businesses in the hotel and restaurant sectors in the wake of COVID-19. Larry has an authentic and raw message to share as a leader in the hospitality industry which has been decimated from the impact of Coronavirus.

In January 2001, Larry Broughton founded Broughton Hotels in Orange County, CA, and has developed the company into a leader within the boutique hotel industry. During what proved to be the worst two-and-a-half year period in the hospitality industry since before World War II, Broughton successfully acquired four hotel properties. The company’s portfolio now includes nearly 20 hospitality projects throughout California and Chicago, IL.

Since its inception, Larry has received several business awards, including Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year®; the National Veteran-Owned Business Association’s Vetrepreneur® of the Year; Coastline Foundation’s Visionary of the Year; Passkeys Foundation’s National Business Leader of Integrity; HSMAI’s 2018 Best of the Best Management Company of the Year; Fodor’s Top US Luxury Hotel; TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards; and Entrepreneur Magazine included the firm on their Hot 500 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies.

March 16, 2020

Ep 203 - In a special live broadcast of The Driven Entrepreneur podcast, I address the elephant in the room, Coronavirus, and what it means for business owners.

Many of my clients and friends (including me!) are entrepreneurs, small business owners, speakers, coaches, and other service providers.

I say we choose to focus on what we CAN CONTROL.

Please comment if you want a question answered or if you have your own idea to help support small business owners during these business bans.
