I have been thinking a lot lately about what it means to 'live the dream' (and make a good living). I've read books, asked for advice, pondered and pondered and pondered.
The common theme in every piece of advice I have had is 'pursue your passion'. I've got a few friends who have made the plunge and are doing quite well; a friend who started a DJ business, another who started her own consulting business.
So my mom has taken the plunge and started her own Bed, Breakfast and Barn. She loves being on the farm and feels like she is living her dream. She enjoys hosting, horses, people and guess what? She is starting to get guests with horses! How exciting. You can see her info at Territorialbbb.com
If you don't have a horse, come stay anyway, she also offers farm stays that allow folks to really get a taste of life in the country.
She has two guest rooms, two RV hookup sites (water/electric), stalls.
She is about 15 minutes from the Oregon Horse Center, 30 minutes from University of Oregon, 45 minutes from Oregon State University.
Come and Stay!
