Bed and Breakfast Finance: Podcast

Our Head of Partnership Chris McDonagh recently did a Q&A Podcast with Yvonne Halling, who  is the founder of Bed and Breakfast and the creator of B&B Money Maker  Business Transformation Program where clients typically increase their business by at least 25% in one season, while working less, paying less commissions and having more fun.

Yvonne ran her B&B in the Champagne region of France for 17 years, first as a hobby making less than €10k per year, before transforming it into a thriving and profitable business, making over €100k a year with just 4 rooms without any listings with online travel agents.

She won several hospitality and marketing awards and is now an award-winning consultant, coach and mentor for independent owners worldwide.

Along with her team, she helps clients to implement key business principles that are very much missing from the small hospitality landscape, which is why online travel agents such as booking dot com and Airbnb have pretty much taken over.

Yvonne believes that hospitality businesses are the hub of local communities, attracting new money by way of guests, and which couldn’t have come by any other means.

Returning the power to the owners, encouraging direct bookings via their websites, not third parties and restoring owners to their rightful place at the heart of their communities, along with educating and inspiring them on how to run their businesses on their terms in the 21st century using the internet, is Yvonne’s mission.

The Podcast covers many of the common questions we get asked around “How to Finance a Bed & Breakfast”.
