I recently spoke with a wonderful woman who has a lot of money, (in a good way), and she was telling me about her new “guest tower”. Don’t ask. Anyway, she had guests there for the first time, and she failed to include some basics — just over looked them, such as: a wastebasket in the bathroom; a full length mirror; and (her guests told her the next day) they would have loved a clock! The woman, who wines and dines with the best of them, was a bit embarrassed!

My advice to her and to everyone who has either a guest suite or, in most cases, a guest bedroom: Stay in it! That’s right. Spend a night or two. Use it and the bathroom. That is the only way. What did you miss? What would have made the “stay” even better? Play guest in your own guestroom. It is amazing what you will discover! Yes, I am happy to say she will be buying my book as soon as it is out…
Happy visiting with love, – Kathy
