To be on holidays all year round - nice to imagine indeed. But what happens
if you can't go on holidays yourself but have to provide them for others?
Instead of having fun you might experience stress in what should be the best
time of the year. And to be able to go to Hawaii and live in the sunshine
in retirement can be a stony path for you. A path of wrong decisions,
unfortunate chance happenings, customers staying away; but also success,
fully booked accomodations and a fat wallet and bank account.
But you and your level of business sense are ultimately responsible for your
success. As a junior businessman with a rather limited starting capital you
can't afford too many bad decisions. Starting with your choice of real
estate, the kind of buildings you put on, the internal decorations and
choosing pricing levels you must not make mistakes. But even when the
holiday makers stay away from your rental accomodations, you have other
ways of income. There are your hotdog stands, papershops and icecream
parlors along the white, sandy beaches. But here too you have to provide
the stock and logistics, so the sales will not slow down. And again your
sense of pricing must be competitive. You have more assets: You buy small
lakes and offer fishing licences. This too is a busy job: pricing policy,
attracting customers and constantly looking after your fishing stock is
important, because without fish there are no fishermen.
So you see, you have both hands full to satisfy your customers and to keep
your bank account in the black. But it is not only your bad decision making,
which can drive you into financial ruin. Break-ins, housefires, and bad
weather conditions can cut deep holes into your budget. Someone who has no
insurance in these circumstances is soon made to look real silly. But smaller
defects in houses sum up too and, if not attended to, can bring you to your
