How to set up a Bed & Breakfast…and manage it?
“Of course, one day, I change my life and I will run a B&B in the sun!”.
You have certainly heard that phrase in your life. Perhaps you expressed this feeling yourself. Is it a utopia? Certainly not because nothing is impossible but everything can be organized.
Dreaming is essential in this kind of project because it is an ideal of life that is sought after. It is by definition intangible and irrational.
The purchase of a property and its daily B&B operational activity nevertheless requires a whole series of objective and rational data.
