Golden Nuggets


  •  You don’t need 1000 short-term rentals to get yourself to the point of having enough cash flow to make that happen because, at the end of the day, short-term rentals are a business; they’re a system. 

  • Regional drivable places are both accessible and affordable, covering the entire spectrum of things that can go wrong in the economy. They’re just a little bit insulated from a lot of the outside factors that other types of markets are not, so that’s why I like to focus on them.

  • You need to take a good hard look at what you’re buying and what market you’re buying in. If you have to analyze it as separate asset classes to see if it will work, you shouldn’t cross asset classes once you can’t mix everything up like that. You need to keep everything separate.

  • My children are certainly welcome to join the family business if they want to, but the entire reason that we’ve set up this business is to allow them to do what they want to do and chase their dreams.
