Out In The Bay - Chip Conley - 6/28/12
Boutique hotel entrepreneur Chip Conley on motivation and more
Chip Conley started in the 1980s with the now-legendary Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco's gritty Tenderloin district. A motel with rooms opening onto the pool, it was a '60s throwback filled with rock stars and Hollywood people. It was the first of his Joie de Vivre hotels, an award-wining boutique chain that propelled him to entrepreneur stardom. He is now a speaker, visionary and motivational author. On this edition of Out in the Bay, host Marilyn Pittman talks with Conley about his iconic lodging venture, his inspirations, and his latest book, "Emotional Equations." He's funny, articulate, and very open about being a gay business mogul.
