Bed and Breakfast Owners
Because you'll essentially be maintaining a home as a bed and
breakfast owner, you should take family and consumer science
courses. These courses can prepare you for the requirements of
shopping and cooking for a group of people, as well as budgeting
household finances. But a bed and breakfast is also a business, so
you need to further develop those budgeting skills in a business
fundamentals class, accounting, and math. A shop class, or some
other hands-on workshop, can be very valuable to you; take a class
that will teach you about electrical wiring, woodworking, and other
elements of home repair. English and speech classes will help you
to communicate with your customers. Classes in a foreign language,
such as Spanish, will help you to communicate with customers who do
not speak English as their first language. Computer science-related
classes will help you learn how to create and manage databases,
design Web sites, and otherwise use computers and the Internet to
promote your business. Finally, you will need to be constantly
marketing your business to potential customers, so be sure to take
as many marketing and advertising classes that are available.
