Learn What It Takes To Be An Innkeeper August 16 – 18, 2013

Ever thought of breaking out of your corporate job and running a bed and breakfast? Sound like just a dream? I’m living proof that you can make it happen and, for me and many other professional innkeepers, attending an aspiring innkeeper’s seminar was a critical first step in making the dream a reality.  
 
One day several years ago I was sitting in a conference room, literally thousands of miles away from home, while everyone else in the room was shouting at each other. I was an outsourcing consultant and project manager that helped large companies make decisions on outsourcing and those are never easy decisions. I loved the work but I was tired of the full-time travel and constantly being surrounded by stressed-out people. So on that day, in my mind, I made a sudden decision to find something else to do – something where I would instead be surrounded by happy people.  
 
So my journey began, but I had a problem…I didn’t have a destination. I continued working as a consultant as I began exploring other career possibilities and after several months I began to focus on professional innkeeping. I began reading books and a lot of information on the Internet, but the turning point was attending a weekend aspiring innkeepers seminar at a bed and breakfast. During that weekend I learned I did have what it takes to be a successful innkeeper and, also that weekend, I committed myself to making the leap from corporate stress to relaxed innkeeper. Here I am, just a few years later, happy to see the smiling faces that walk in the door of my inn everyday.
