So much great info!

I love this podcast. So much great information from people with real experience. They’re in the trenches just like so many of us, and they share what works and what doesn’t. Plus they are just fun to listen to and bring up different perspectives to consider. Keep up the great work!

Devoured every past and current episode

I am actively pursuing purchasing my first STR in the next couple months. Thanks For Visiting has provided me with invaluable and insightful knowledge and the inspiration to make my dream into a reality. This was the first STR podcast I started listening to on this journey, and has and continues to be one of the best sources of industry information I have found. I have listened to every past and current episode. I now follow many of the industry guests. Plus, Annette and Sarah are delightful and relatable, and I love their passion for creating amazing guest experiences.
