This is an entrepreneurial position where we will support you in developing your own business to run these things at wheaton labs. So the "great pay" is not an hourly wage paid by us, but the net business proceeds from the rentals and events.

1) Autonomy? Who would be in charge of the resort phase, Paul or me?
2) Where would I live, How would I eat as I was building this great resort?
3) Resorts usually mean services, ie: who will clean the guests tipi, make the guests bed, feed the guests? Would you be looking for direction from the resort director?
4) Any kind of budget to work with?
5) What kind of profit expectations do you have?
I take it you are looking for someone with experience to direct the "resort" with ideas towards the comfort and joyful experience of the glampors while trying to secure funds for further projects of world domination. Further, you are looking for someone with a bunch of ideas to entertain folks and make their visit enjoyable, memorable and exciting. All of this to be accomplished through the watchful, benevolence of yourself.
1) Yes you and your family can spend the weekend in a real live tipi where you can experience the warm comforting heat of a RMH
2) Come to the land of permaculture, get away from all the hustle and bustle of the big city
3) Ever pooped in a outhouse, wanna get in touch with how your ancestors use to do their business
4) Ever killed, dressed, butchered, cooked your own pig, cow, squirrel, bear, elk, porcupine, swan, duck, moose, deer, chicken, wanna? we can show you how for a price.
5) Ever run a backhoe
6) Wanna chop down a tree
7) Tour guides available for your personal trip to the back country to see lots of trees etc
Ever seen two pigs doing it?
9) Help with this years harvest. Bring the kids to dig up the potatoes and carrots and put them up for the winter.

Just kidding! It sounds like there is a tremendous amount of resources and support available.
The devil is in the details.

I've lived at a few camps and they all have their things and feels, I call it the site DNA, or what makes that place that place....
And if I'm not to hard to deal with here, maybe a picture of said tipi and surroundings, or link to one.....
Thanks a million!

I would view the opportunity to see so many permaculture methods in active and practical use as an investment in my own education. Consider the fact that I have little 'disposable' income or time to put towards such things. Seems to me that Paul has recognized a real viable revenue stream for his community that meets a real demand in the wider world.

You sparked my interest, C.E. Rice. I'd love to give you a hand with rental coordination, communications, fine art and design (my Chilean daughter went to art school and directed a mural painting workshop in Chiloe), activities such as setting up a treasure hunt based on the permaculture playing cards, staging a capture the Wheaton Labs flag competition, building a catapult for mostly safe medieval water bomb warfare with the ants, bringing musicians together for fireside festivals and staging Senoi-inspired dream enactment plays involving the entire community.
I'm done with my day job and will be traveling to Canada at the end of June to get started on the rest of my life. This coming chapter is going to be all about permaculture, art and music. I'll be busy helping to create a sunken patio, food forest, hugelkultur rows and moon gate in a residential area of Lethbridge during the month of July. Early August is doable if you're interested in having an enthusiastic full-time or part-time contributor as part of your team.
Long days and pleasant nights,
