When I first started Behind the Scenes Belle, I quickly learned that not everyone is overly excited about having guests in their home. It’s not that anyone was overtly inhospitable, most seemed to really like the idea of entertaining, it’s just that the felt there were reasons why it just wasn’t for them. So I took to social media and asked people to share their thoughts on their hospitality obstacles. I received some very honest and common answers:
Barrier 2. It’s so expensive
Barrier 3. My house is not clean or nice enough
Barrier 4. People can be so difficult
Barrier 5. I am just not comfortable with it
Because of the amazing responses I received and the interest in the topic, I didn’t want to group responses and tips for all of the hospitality obstacles together. So please stay tuned for a five-part series starting January 10.
By the way, if this series prompts you to be more hospitable in the new year, please see this post on making hospitality resolutions.
Stay humble, work hard, be kind.
