PurposeReview of her Business Options

Reviewed all her rents at her location

She decided to increase her rates for each rental area, and make the studio a monthly rental, rather than weekly.

Tasks to do:

Calculate the new rents to see how much that will net her

She also qualifies for the digital Grant

Wants to add to her digital store, and needs to promote her paintings and notecards, then promote her website.

Dee sent her all three documents

She will need to work on this before she even thinks about submitting for the grant. She is fine with seeing Dee in March.

Comments or Questions

Before Covid I had run my retreat where people would come and stay for a weekend or sometimes a month but not much longer. With Covid I had to have guests stay longer and now I am trying to go back to having guests only visit short term (one week min up to a few months) but the numbers do not add up. I am making more with longer term guests but want to figure out how to manage everything and go back to my former plan. I am older and have had serious health issues so having the longer term has been good for that too. I need to find a way to attract guests who want to come to Flower Hill Farm Retreat for what it is -- make it the destination. Thank you for any help with this. Carol
