How to be a Great Host
Determine your goals
No matter your reasons for hosting, the importance of the alignment between personal goals and hosting cannot be understated. Financial, personal, and professional aspirations can all be achieved with effective preparation and presence of mind to work with your end goals in plain view. The results may not only improve your quality of life, but the lives of your guests.
Surround yourself with resources
Get to know the talents, services, and opportunities available to you from your neighbors in the surrounding community. They are an invaluable resource and may provide exactly what you need during a critical time. Building relationships is a significant part of effective hosting. At times you may be unavailable, and those forged relationships will be your saving grace!
