The following are just my thoughts. Remember first and foremost that you have to be quite mad to even dream about running a bridge club in the first place; the revenue per square foot (and you need lots of space) never is enough, the expenses are high and the workload enormous. My husband and I each work 18 hours of every single day. The desks never clear! You will never get rich doing it but on a scale of job satisfaction, I reckon it’s a 10 out of 10. I feel sure that most of you have thought of much of this already but I am just going to roll it into my nutshell anyway.
