Preface

The goal of this ebook is to help you reach your goals as painlessly and easily as possible.

You want to break away from the daily grind of 9 to 5 and be your own boss. We want that too. But be prepared to work more than 8 hours a day, seven days a week, until you succeed.

It is not as big a sacrifice as you may initially think, because working for yourself can bring financial security, pleasure and many other rewards.

You are a good candidate as an innkeeper if you see yourself as a jack of all trades, who can wear many hats.  You will likely be remodeling and furnishing rooms, cooking and cleaning, marketing, bookkeeping, taking customer orders over the phone, and dealing with local and state laws, to name just a few tasks. Do it yourself will become the rule of the day.

Don't worry if you do not know how to do all of the above, so long as you are willing to learn and have a strong desire to succeed, then there will be no stopping you.

The greatest fear is fear itself. This ebook covers all the basic requirements and at a minumum will give you enough information so that you will know how to proceed.  Use this ebook as a guide not an authority.  It will help you to discover what questions to ask and will give you some idea about how to solve many of the most common tasks. 

By the time you finish this eBook, you will have a better idea about if you want to become and innkeeper and what is involved in reaching that goal.  Your next step will be to buy a good book with more current and specific guide lines and to visit B&B forums and ask a lot of questions.
