Some of the smartest people I know have told me that working a "job" leaves you financially vulnerable.  If you get laid off, you are left with no solid income source until you get another job.  However, if you own your own business (or businesses), you can always go out and find new customers.

Is it time for you to take that leap and go into business for yourself?  This could be the perfect opportunity!

The inn and ice cream shop

Laflin & Wolfington Realty has a listing for an inn (or, bed and breakfast) in the tourist town of Bingham.  The 4,000 square foot inn, which sits on the banks of the mighty Kennebec River, has ten rooms and four bathrooms.  The inn also has two living rooms, an enclosed porch, and a hot tub.

Additionally, there is a carriage house that can be used to host parties and events.

Located on the banks of the Kennebec River, it provides the owners and guests with a place to launch small boats, kayaks, etc.

And, the place comes with an additional revenue stream.  The property comes with a seasonal ice cream stand, located on the same property.
