Experience - Growth - Journey
Wil Slickers started working for a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel in Spokane, Washington and shortly realized his passion for people and hospitality was his dream life and career! Wil played many roles in the hotel of over 700 rooms, and after a few years there, he wanted to learn and grow more by learning the operations side of the business.
So, like any single 23 year old, he moved to the Oregon Coast to manage a small collection of independent properties and restaurants while starting a podcast! With a change in ownership, he then moved over to a smaller 70 unit, all suite hotel property. During this time the podcast really started to take shape and lead Wil to take the risk to quit his day job and venture out to run the podcast full time right before the start of 2020.
During this last year of full time entrepreneurship, Wil Slickers has created more podcast episodes, industry connections, and industry concepts than he would've ever imagined! Now, with a high demand for content, tools, and resources for anything involving hospitality, with a Hospitality & Revenue Management Certification through Cornell University, Wil has dedicated his time to individual and big name operators in the vacation rental and boutique hotel segments of hospitality while still growing the show and industry network globally.
