Owner: Monique Greenwood

Akwaaba Bed & Breakfast Inns is the upscale lodging collection owned by husband and wife team Glenn Pogue and Monique Greenwood. The couple fell in love with inns when they stayed at their first bed and breakfast back in the early ’90s. As guests, they enjoyed the hominess and intimacy of the B&B experience, and Monique quickly discovered that innkeeping combined all of her personal passions – architecture and interior decorating, entertaining and meeting new people, and helping others create wonderful, lasting memories. She serves as president and CEO of the company.

Gary and the crew are heading to Brooklyn, New York to talk to Monique, who began "Akwaaba", a unique bed and breakfast that's getting rave reviews. Then they travel to Indianapolis to speak with Heather, who started "Retro 101," Indiana's first fashion boutique on wheels. And last, they swing by Milwaukee to meet with Ray, who created "Rays Indoor Mountain Bike Park" a place for anyone from amateurs to professionals to enjoy biking year round.
