#217 B and B’s Offer Offer an Attractive Alternative For Business Travelers

Bed and Breakfasts offer an attractive alternative to bland hotels when traveling for business. Host Lydia Di Liello welcomes sister-in-law Laura Di Liello to the show today to discuss the ins and outs of running an inn and how staying at an inn can help you return home less stressed. Laura started her career as an electrical engineer in the automotive industry. Her experience traveling around the world and staying in countless hotels led her and her husband (also an electrical engineer) to leave corporate culture behind to run an 18-room inn in Pennsylvania. Laura details how to choose the right location, how to tell the good from the not-so-good, and how to get the most out of your stay.
