Hey there I'm Richard. I'm a father, entrepreneur and former Wall Street Hedgefunder. I've owned a small portfolio of real estate investments since 1998 and traditionally I generated rental income through long-term rentals. About 4 years ago a buddy of mine mentioned Airbnb hosting for short term rentals. It sounded crazy at first, but I was willing to give it a shot. Happy to say in 2016 I generated over $500,000 in rental income which is 2-3 times what I would've generated long-term.Now I want to share what I've learned over the last 4 years to help you get started on Airbnb and Homeawy and / or take your business to the next level.My mission is to build a community of people who embrace the short term rental idea and share their own thoughts and learnings. I've learned plenty the hard way, and I don't know everything, but if we build a community we will all crush it in this space.
