A lot of that is “nice but out of reach”, either due to state laws and/or our insurance coverage

B&Bs and any sort of “guest stay” or even tourism-type events are specifically not covered, because they’re such high risk of claims. We had a CSA for a few years and it didn’t work out very well for us.

The stuff I’m mulling right now tries to meet three criteria:
1) minimal new setup, up-front expenses, and/or permits
2) makes use of something we already have in abundance
3) can be done year-round rather than seasonally

So far I’ve come up with the following:
website articles
pet food
wood craft products
wool/fiber products
professional svcs, probably for some of the software products I used to design/support

The website articles are particularly appealing, because I enjoy writing, I can write a full article in only a few days, and I can sell it over and over again without any additional effort. So that’s where I’m leaning at the moment. The wood crafts and wool/fiber products appeal to my arts-n-crafts side, but there’s a lot of prep work involved. The professional services/consulting is also appealing, because if I work for three hours, I get paid for three hours. But a lot of those professional contacts and networking have moved on to vastly different fields, and/or that work has been shipped overseas. So article-writing might be the primary, then perhaps crafts work over the winter. That’s a good wintertime activity anyway.

I have never heard of this kind of training

But I’ve never worked in the ‘corporate realm’ either. Not sure how one “teaches” humility to someone who is so full of themselves to begin with. Sounds like someone figured out a scam, ahem, a ‘unique training track’ and someone has taken the bait, I mean, bought the manual. I guess the best that can be said is that the company has some money to be spent and they found someone to take it. LOL Nothing like a good match.
