    250. How My Dad Started SHERATON HOTELS During The GREAT DEPRESSION | Mitzi Frank Perdue

    250. How My Dad Started SHERATON HOTELS During The GREAT DEPRESSION | Mitzi Frank Perdue

    We Talk About How Her Dad Founded SHERATON Hotels During The Great Depression, In One of The Greatest Conversations I’ve Had, In Elevating Beyond Podcast History, With Guest Mitzi Perdue! 
     
    Mitzi Also Shares The Story Behind The Story of her late husband, Frank Perdue, starting with no employees yet employed 20,000 at the time of his death, building a multi billion dollar company.
     
    How They Built The Legacy of Perdue Farms, Which Now Grosses Over 6 Billion Dollars A Year, & Has Prospered For Over 100 Years!
     
    “My Husband, Frank Perdue, started with Perdue Farms, he was one of 5000 farmers on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Using marketing, he catapulted his company into the top tiers of agri-buisness, and in a good year, we sell to 50 different countries. I can talk about how a shy country boy became an international marketing icon.
     
    During the Great Depression, my father and my uncle co-founded the Sheraton Hotel Chain.   It was a time when people were discouraged and were running away from real estate.  Father had a secret sauce, a timeless secret for creating success no matter how bad the economy. By the time of his death, he employed 20,000 people and owned 400 Sheraton Hotels.  
     
    Your audience may enjoy some of his extraordinary techniques. You won’t read about them in business books or study them in business schools.
     
    I can share stories that only a daughter might know.  And as a daughter, I was forever asking him why he made his decisions to do this or that.”
     
    - Guest Mitzi Perdue -
     
    Mitzi Perdue Is Also Author of HOW TO BE UP IN DOWN TIMES, with NY Times Best Selling Author of The Chicken Soup For The Soul Series, Mark Victor Hansen, & Preston Weekes.

    Mitzi (in all her spare time, haha,) Also Founded CERES Farms, using some of her Father’s techniques. Today, CERES Farms is one of the larger producers of wine grapes in California. If you’ve  ever tasted any of the following wines, you may have sampled my grapes: Kendall Jackson, Mondavi, Bogle, Folie a Deux, and Toasted Head.

    About Mark Victor Hansen: http://markvictorhansen.com/about-mvh/
     
    Hansen was born to Danish immigrants, Una and Paul Hansen.[2][3] He grew up in Waukegan, Illinois.[1] He graduated from Southern Illinois University in 1970 with a B.A. in speech communications.

    Also, he has appeared on TV infomercials, talking with and supporting Anthony Morrison, who introduced his internet product. In this sales page, Anthony Morrison introduces his product in a video, where he takes us by the heart, taking his private jet to go "helping" 3 retired (or close-to-retire) men making money with ClickBank and CPA and PPC on Google.
    Mark was turned down 144 times trying to get his book published. He kept going when others told him it would never work-that it wasn’t a good idea.
    Mark and Crystal are heavily engaged and invested in clean, renewable energy through ownership in two companies, Metamorphosis Energy and Natural Power Concepts, based in Hawaii.
    Today with almost 500 million Chicken Soup for the Soulbooks sold, Mark is glad he held fast to the principles of perseverance, excellence, and belief in one’s self that have allowed him to create extraordinary achievement in his life. As one of the world’s most respected thought leaders, he is known globally as the Ambassador of Possibility.
    Mark Victor Hansen is probably best known as the co-author for the Chicken Soup for the Soulbook series and brand, setting world records in book sales, with over 500 millions books sold.
     
    Mark also worked his way into a worldwide spotlight as a sought-after keynote speaker, and entrepreneurial marketing maven, creating a stream of successful people who have created massive success for themselves through Mark’s unique teachings and wisdom.
     
    With his endearing charismatic style, Mark captures his audience’s attention as well as their hearts. Having spoken to over 6000 audiences world-wide with his one-of-a-kind technique and masterful authority of his work, time and again he continues to receive high accolades from his audiences as one of the most dynamic and compelling speakers and leaders of our time.
