Show Notes For This Episode
- Set your intention. There is some great discussion at the beginning about how things flowed naturally toward her goals once Janice set her intentions and became crystal clear on what she wanted to do.
- Tips on opening a B&B. This was a real eye opener. Janice build her B&B from the ground up. You may wish to buy one that's already established because it's likely to be largely compliant with local regulations — and there are lots of them.
- On becoming a destination location. What you need to create something that will attract people from near and far, including using social media to connect with customers and propsectsin.
- Creating multiple streams of income. Janice does not rely solely on income from overnight stays at her B&B. This is a great discussion about the multiple streams of income produced by her location.
