Help fund your new lifestyle...
"A couple of years ago, everyone was talking buy-to-let.
Now it's B&B"   The Daily Telegraph, 7th April 2007
Ever wanted to "sack your boss" and move to that dream home in the country or by the sea?
This book shows how you could help fund your new lifestyle by running a B&B.
Whether you have just started thinking about running a B&B, or have already made the decision and are ready to start planning your business, this book will tell you all you need to know. It will help you to provide quality accommodation even if you are completely new to the hospitality business, and perhaps have not even run your own business before.
The book is also useful for those already running a B&B, and wanting to know how to tackle the latest 2006 regulations, or wanting to hone and develop their business and boost its profits.
Louise and David Weston run their own successful B&B in Dorset. David has worked in the holiday business for 17 years and now runs his own marketing consultancy, specialising in tourism and hospitality. They bring both personal and professional experience to this book.
This book will help you to:
Plan and prepare your business - budgeting, pricing, compliance with regulations, accounting and taxation, and defining your market
Decide what to offer - in guest bedrooms, for meals and for drinks
Deal with the practicalities - managing reservations and keeping records, taking payments, maintaining safety and security
Market your B&B - setting your strategy, networking and making local contacts, advertising and PR, creating your own website
Expand your business and ultimately sell it - "cash in your chips"
