I was told many years ago by a very wise man to not turn your hobby into a career. I think this is a problem with many innkeepers, they think what they enjoy as hobbies will make a good career, then they hate it. Hate the people, hate the whole thing.
On the same token, we become innkeepers and give up our own time and hobbies and in so doing this we starve ourselves of what WE need. I have not heard it rallied over and over on this forum yet like the old forum - but it used to be said "take care of yourself first" and "make sure your own quarters are nice and not buried with business stuff, ironing, etc so you have a place to retreat to."
I am sure there was other advice about this that MOST innkeepers do not adhere to and think they can just make do. Our well being depends on having our OWN space, having it as nice as possible, not the last care of the inn. Your loved ones get the raw end of the deal when you give give give to guests and burn out. Take care of you!.
