Don’t give up easily, because there’ll be many obstacles or roadblocks placed in your way. If you enjoy challenges, you’ll enjoy the hotel industry. It is physically and mentally very challenging but also extraordinarily rewarding, a lot more than most other industries, providing you’re willing to stay the course!

Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
