Buying a Bed and Breakfast?
Do you want to be a successful B&B innkeeper?
If you answered yes to either question -- or both of them -- you're in luck. Any combination of the services offered by "The B&B Lady" can help you avoid problems, and save you time and money as you build your bed and breakfast business.
Which B&B should you buy? How much should you pay? What will it take to make or keep your B&B inn successful? Every inn I've evaluated has sold in the price range I reached through my analysis. You can benefit from my experience by learning the secrets of pricing and evaluating the B&B inns you consider. I can help your purchase decisions be sound, contributing to your succesful innkeeping through my real estate counseling.
My services include real estate counseling,
ebooks. Which are best for you?
Furthermore, most innkeepers don't earn as much with their B&Bs as they would like, and even struggle to pay their bills or maintain their property.
Myth 2: Buying a B&B is as easy as buying a house.
In reality, running an inn requires much more attention to detail and time than having house guests. And buying a bed and breakfast is much more involved than buying a house. Much more.
Determine what to look for when you buy an inn and how much money you'll need. Learn how to brand and market your B&B for maximum profit; make more and spend less with a strong brand. Understand your strengths and weaknesses to increase your success and customer service. The "how-to" of daily operations can be made easy -- and profitable.
Most B&B consultants tell you that for success you must have a certain number of guestrooms, include a restaurant in your business plan, or be in a specific location. But they fail to ask one important question: How do you define success? Is it the amount of money you make, the lifestyle you want, or raising a family? I work with your definition of success during our real estate counseling sessions to help you reach your goals.
With my more-than 20 years of experience in the B&B industry, I can help you make your B&B business dream viable. If self-directed education is your best style of learning then my consulting services are ideal for you.
Seminars -- to guide your successful B&B purchase and profitable operations.
We live in a busy world. Our busy lives tend to keep us from doing the research and preparation that should be done to make wise business decisions. Do you want to make a good investment and make money with your B&B inn? From my years of experience with thousands of aspiring and active innkeepers, I've learned an important truth:
What does it take to buy a B&B? How do you run (or manage) an inn effectively for profit? What is the "right" price to charge for your guestrooms? Can you run the bed and breakfast by yourself or do you need help? Learn the "secrets" of successful innkeeping with my "how-to" classes that I've given to hundreds of aspiring innkeepers.
As I interact with active and aspiring innkeepers I observe their lack of understanding of what outstanding customer service and high quality can do for their business.
Determine the level of quality and success you want to provide through guidance provided in my seminars. Learn how superb customer service brings your guests back. Ascertain what quality does to improve your bottom line and how it builds your B&B inn's reputation. Several of my graduates have attained a four- diamond rating because of their understanding of service and quality in this business. Many of my graduates have related more to the service and quality associated with the three-diamond rating and have been pleased with the resulting profit and reputation of that level of service.
My B&B seminars are especially great for those who want structured learning as they pursue their B&B.
Guarantee your B&B success yet one more way
There's so much to learn about B&Bs -- where do you start? Ebooks! Find the full gamut of information in my ebooks as you do in my seminars.
Which B&B do you buy? How much money do you need to buy a B&B? How much money can you make with your bed and breakfast inn? Can you navigate the purchase process without a B&B Broker? Is the asking price reasonable? Are there enough guestrooms for you to have the lifestyle you want and the income you need? Gain these insights and more, by studying and doing the exercises found in my ebook, Buying A B&B.
My B&B ebooks (delivered by e-mail or CD-ROM) feature detailed lessons and worksheets that result in a customized business plan. Many new innkeepers stop there, thinking that buying the "right" property was their only concern.
How can I be most successful owning and running my bed and breakfast? My five-ebook series, The B&B Balancing Act: Business versus Hospitality, takes you from building a solid foundation under your B&B dream through the first three years of operation of the bed and breakfast you bought or developed. What a great learning tool and resource!
Buy the individual ebooks from the series, or buy the complete set and receive two bonus eguides covering job description and checklists, and an operations manual.
Most people don't have enough the time to take four -- or more -- days out of their busy lives to learn what they need to buy and operate an inn successfully. However, they do have the time to learn the information necessary for successfully buying the right B&B and operating it profitably. You have the time to study from the comfort of your home or office -- at your own pace. Reading my ebooks gives you the keys to success as you need them.
Buy one or the whole set of ebooks and save money while you learn the secrets to successful bed and breakfast innkeeping.
