I have worked in an office environment for several years, was laid off the end of March and have been trying to "find Myself". I love chatting with people from all different areas. We own a timeshare and have traveled the US quite a bit. Widowed a few years back and am becoming an empty nester soon. I love baking and cooking for others, mostly for the pleasure of seeing them enjoy my food. I was looking at a bunch of B&B's online lately and am pretty curious about owning one myself. This was pretty informational. Thanks! I can see how it would be a lot of work, and unless you find a great manager or assistant to fill in when you have someplace else to be it would be difficult to get away yourself!. its definitely worth some thought. Being self employed has always been a dream for me as well.
