I wanted to just talk for a minute about continuing education, a very important element in any career and Innkeepers are no different. We just wrapped another WBBA (Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association) conference. It was held in the Dells for the second year, and a good time was had by all. Lots of educational opportunities, and networking with Innkeepers as well as vendors. It is amazing the different businesses that can apply to or have some role in running a bed and breakfast. I think in some ways, you can begin to believe as either a business owner or an employee that your situation is different than everyone else’s, that no one can understand where your at in your business and/or career. Nothing could be further from the truth. As I was visiting with other Innkeepers, people that I look up to, admire and esteem…their stories and where they are at in life are much the same as mine. So as we are now re-energized, we soldier on until the next time we meet, know that we are all in this together, this thing that we call business, as well as life.
