Today’s expert guest is Lynn Smith, a short-term rental host and co-host for properties in Oklahoma City and the surrounding area. Informed by a mixed background in public health, event planning, and sales, Lynn started her hosting journey in 2020.
She’s a star member of our Hosting Business Mastery Method and has actually taught us so much over the years, that it came time to feature her unique perspective and approach on the podcast.
Specifically, she’s a master at turning hardships into opportunities. We talk about the technology she’s used to manage her business, hard lessons she’s learned to effectively manage a team, and how she maintains healthy boundaries to keep it all running smoothly.
