Lyssa & Sophie ,

Great resource

Lots of great information nuggets in here! Highly recommend. :)

Learned nothing

The guys on the show like to talk about stuff that they used to do or about their background and nothing about how to run the Airbnb business which is what I came here for. If you’re going to do a podcast on a subject talk about the subject only not everything else. Waste of time. Now let me go back to The Cardone Zone.

Great Podcast

These episodes are all full of different & valuable information. Julian asks the perfect questions & covers a dynamic range of topics related to STRs. I cant wait to start my Airbnb business and apply the knowledge I've learned here.
