Being a home-based entrepreneur is the ideal solution for moms dreaming of balancing business and family. While there are many options available that offer the flexibility associated with working from home, one of the more rewarding options is that of running your own Guest House or Bed and Breakfast. After all, no one is better equipped than Mom to create the homely and personalised experience that make guest houses such a popular accommodation choice.
While Guest House Management can be an attractive, people-centric and fun career, many people underestimate the level of responsibility needed to start a guest house successfully. Giving your guest house the best chance of success, means setting a solid foundation and being equipped with the right knowledge and skills to take the complexities out of getting started. Knowing how to choose the right location, hire staff, deal with the practicalities of day-to-day management, and market your guest house will ensure you get off the ground quickly and meet your prospective guests needs with excellence.
The 10-week University of Cape Town Guest House Management short course, starting on 26 August 2013, is the perfect starting point for work-from-home moms looking to start and run a successful guest house. The course is presented part-time, and entirely online, by the University of Cape Town and online education company, GetSmarter, and has been designed for busy moms to complete in their own time.
