This seminar is designed for you as it covers everything you need to know to start and operate a B&B. Running a successful B&B is much more complicated than people think, in fact some people have even called it a ‘no brainer’. But because it involves people and business skills and a commitment of time and effort, it is very important to fully look into the business to see if you are suited to it before you take the first steps. You may find out, as many have, that the business is not for you and the small investment in a seminar will save you thousands of dollars. One author has written, “The difficulty of successfully starting and operating a B&B is often overlooked because of the emotional appeal and the romantic notions that surround the subject.” The course includes a 1 year free subscription to BBCanada.com.
Group seminars are held in Courtenay. The cost is $200 for singles and $300 for couples. It is really recommended that spouses attend as they will be a big part of the business. The course includes a seminar manual, a copy of our book, lunches, coffee and snacks. The B&B has three rooms so you can book accommodation there if you are coming from out of town.
There is lots of time for questions and discussion and to network with other prospective B&Bers. We usually do one seminar in early November and one in March. Please contact us to see when our next group seminar will be held or refer to our website www.bbbookandseminars.com.
We also do private seminars for people who would like more individual attention. These are held over two days at our home in Lillooet and include one night’s accommodation, a seminar manual, a copy of our book, lunches, snacks and refreshments. The cost of private seminars is $400 per couple.
