“I have control over the energy that I am contributing to the world.” – Sarah Dandashy
Our guest today possesses some unique superpowers: the ability to connect people and get stuff done.
Sarah Dandashy, founder and creator of the web series Ask A Concierge, has been dubbed the darling of the concierge community. She’s been recognized by the Les Clefs d’Or Concierge, a not-for-profit association made up of professional hotel concierge members.
Being a concierge and working in the field makes sense for Sarah, as she herself enjoys traveling – plus the fact that she actually studied Foreign Service in college.
On this episode, Sarah takes us back to her history, her lineage, and her experiences as a concierge. You’ll be amused to learn that what The Grand Budapest Hotel portrays actually does happen in real life!

- What it’s like to be a concierge
- How one’s background and connections are super helpful in getting stuff done, especially in the hotel and hospitality industry
- Lots of different hotel and concierge stories from Sarah herself
- How the concierge community is just that: a community of individuals constantly tapping on one another’s resources in order to serve clients
