A must listen to podcast Melinda Pye Simply Splendid Home Staging and Photography

Thank you Thanks for Visitings Annette and Sara!! I absolutely love listening to and learning from you ladies. You are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the STR market and have made it easy for anybody to understand how this industry works from soup to nuts. You are both honest about how exciting the work can be along with the pitfalls and reality of sweat that has to go in in the front end when starting any STR adventure!! You are also honest about and can now laugh at some of the mistakes you’ve made along the way which helps remind me we are all human and it’s all takes time. You have amazing guests too! So THANKS again you dynamic duo!!

Very informative

I first found the thanksforvisiting episodes when searching for more info on airbnb. After listening to several of their episodes and not knowing anything about airbnb at all I have learned so much from them, I personally feel they have everything you need to know about running a short term rental business from A to Z. I am almost done with all of their episodes and up to date and am blown away by all the info, they really create a win-win for other people to succeed at airbnb/short term rentals as well.
