I agree that the title of this thread and your question above are not the same...Breakfast Diva said:What ONE thing do you wish you had been told before you became an innkeeper?
I read every post on our predecessor forum... there was nothing that I wasn't told before I became an innkeeper. Of course, being told and understanding what I was told are not the same thing...
I would tell an aspiring that if they are willing to work really, really hard, that there's no reason they can't be an innkeeper, too. Maybe not a 8 room, lake front inn... but somewhere there's a niche and a way to pay for it.
The first innkeeper I ever talked to about innkeeping told me that innkeeping was "Brawn! A lot of muscle! Long days and hard work!" I didn't understand why, so she elaborated. She was sooo right!
So, I was told, but it's the thing I'd tell an aspiring... innkeeping is not for the lazy or faint of heart.... but if you're willing, you're able!
