Test Your Bed & Breakfast Fantasy By Bartering

Who hasn�t, at one time or another, dreamed of owning a bed-and-breakfast inn? It�s the perfect fantasy of leaving the hectic life behind and being your own boss in an idyllic setting. But like everything else, what you think the life of a b&b owner might be, and what it truly entails, can be quite different. So before taking the big leap into a business you know little about, why not take the smarter road and find out what a b&b innkeeper actually does?

If you don�t have any experience in the field, you will probably need to take a course to learn the basics. Courses are available through Interim Innkeepers Network, www.interiminnkeepers.net.

Then go out and strike an agreement to work with a b&b owner, taking back as payment some inn script for your future use or as a trading vehicle to acquire other needed products/services.

As an experienced interim innkeeper you can earn $100 to $300 a day, depending on the size of the facility and whether there�s staff to do the housework.
