Today, I'm excited to kick off our newest segment of #ThoughtLeaderThursday. In this weekly segment, we will feature a guest post from a thought leader in the STR industry who has a unique, actionable perspective on the future. My goal with this #ThoughtLeaderThursday segment is to highlight valuable ideas and perspectives from around the STR industry that you otherwise may not have seen during your busy day.
Today's post is from Zafar Mawani. Zafar caught my attention after posting a very thoughtful and prescient post on an STR forum we are both in. Among other interests, Zafar's company manages 10 STR in Chicago. Additionally, he has an impressive educational and professional background that gives him a unique perspective on the future of STRs in 2020.
I think hearing the following perspective will give STR managers and owners some hope that it's not all doom and gloom, and that STR owners and managers can help this crisis.
