Acquire strategies to start a business, boost an existing business or financial strategies to get ahead in life with SUU Community Education this fall. Two new courses are now open for registration for those who desire to keep learning.

Home hosting has changed the way many people vacation in today’s world while also becoming a way for others to earn extra income. But, before becoming an innkeeper, Julie Robinson, owner of Boho Hospitality, had many questions.

On Sept. 29, Robinson is instructing “DIY Inns: Is Hosting Vacation Rentals Right for You?” This two-hour seminar will teach participants all about DIY Inns including: how different home environments can be adapted for short-term renting, how to make the most money out of a space, and the intrinsic value of opening up their doors to the world.

On Oct. 13, “Everything You Need to Know About Vacation Rentals” will teach participants how to design their space, market their listing, manage time and guests, and make the most of the hospitality experience. Participants for both classes should come prepared to ask questions.

A four-week course entitled “Women in Business: Planning for Success” begins on Oct. 11. Learn how to develop effective strategies and business planning, and walk away with a list of resources to help start or improve a business. By the end of this class, participants will be able to define a product/service, set financial goals with a plan to achieve them and define a customer base with plans to reach those customers.

Since 2016, instructor Jennie Hendricks has been developing and teaching continuing education classes to realtors, as well as teaching classes on advertising and marketing.

SUU Community Education establishes community partnerships by generating fun, cultural and educational opportunities for those who love to learn. Subjects including culinary, arts, writing, yoga, dancing, pickleball and more, are taught by local professionals for the purpose of increasing participant knowledge and developing new skills.

Since its launch in Jan. 2018, SUU Community Education has enrolled more than 500 community members in classes specializing in developing new hobbies and skills.

This fall, there are more than 30 classes designed to build your resume, learn something new or develop a hobby or skill. For more information, visit suu.edu/wise, email bewise@suu.edu, call (435) 865-8259, or stop by their office at 136 W. University Blvd, Suite 003, Cedar City.
