How to run a B&B course – insight into what it’s really like & how to do it!

Considering a change of lifestyle to escape the rat race, live your dream lifestyle, supplement your pension or build your own business by running a B&B or small hotel?

If this is you, and you are at a turning point in your life you are in the right place! Ten years ago, I was in exactly the same position. Today, after many steep learning curves, I run a successful business, and can now share some of the ways to make this style of business work for you! I hope the content of ‘So you think you want to run your own B&B (or small hotel)?’ gives you food for thought and excites you about the prospect of seriously exploring this way of life.

Whether you have already made a firm decision, or you are looking to weigh up your options, we offer you the unique opportunity to participate in one of our two and a half day courses.

My goal is to help new and prospective B&B and small hotel owners save money and make more money by getting it right first time, and avoiding some of the pitfalls I encountered!
