Tourism Management: I opened my own Bed & Breakfast

After graduating at HZ, what kind of career prospects have you explored?
“Currently I own my own Bed & Breakfast in Middelharnis (NL). Before that I worked at the Sales Department of an events agency, which was just not for me. I also worked at the municipality in the Department of Civil Affairs. I really liked working here, but it was a temp job. Therefor I decided to go for it and open my own business: the Bed & Breakfast. Fun fact, I already started on this idea during my graduation period."

Owning your own business is not nothing. How do you see the future?
"Running a B&B is a fantastic job. From online pricing, invoicing, marketing to making breakfast and cleaning the rooms: I do everything myself. That is also what attracts me the most to entrepreneurship. The Bed & Breakfast is doing really well and I’m thinking of setting up another business next to it. I think something in tourism as well. I also hope I can open an even bigger and successful business in the future."
