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:
wood craft 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.
