Breakfast Diva Lifeline

Everyone needs a lifeline now and then.  Whether through scheduled video chats or phone calls, get the answers you need as you need them.  If you are considering a kitchen renovation, change in breakfast style, service, or need food preparation support, having a step-by-step coach over several weeks or months is critical. Maybe you just need a deep dive into what to serve a gluten-free guest with a dairy allergy for a ten day stay, or have questions about meal planning. Through scheduled, virtual appointments get the answers you need from the Breakfast Diva. Lifeline plans begin at $90 for 2 hours and completion of the Lifeline information survey.

For existing innkeepers, curated specifically for your demographics, style and operations, together we would create a customized plan of hands-on, in person coaching to curate your very own brand of breakfast excellence. We begin with the content included in the Breakfast Inn-tensive, include your specific needs, concerns and ambitions, and continue with Breakfast Diva Lifeline service for six months following the workshop.
