Ever wanted to 'sack your boss' and move to that dream home in the country or by the sea? You could help fund your new lifestyle by running a B&B. Whether you are 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 though you are completely new to the hospitality business and have not run your own business before. This work shows how to: plan and prepare your business - budgeting, pricing, regulation and compliance, 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; focus on marketing your B&B - setting your strategy, networking and making local contacts, advertising and PR, creating your own web site; and expand your business and ultimately sell it - 'cash in your chips'.
