Wonderful resource for a variety of perspectives

Im thinking of becoming a MTR host and find this a great resource!

Great real time inspiration

I enjoy this show a lot as a Mid Term Rental host and owner. It’s a great perspective from inside the shop of Furnished Finder. What I would love to hear are more stories about those that are still coming up in the journey vs someone that’s already making tons of money. Like a case study with a panel. For example, I’ve got 2 arbitrage units a that are barley cash flowing. I feel like I’ve followed all the tips on the show, but maybe a pro could pick it apart and help me find the holes. Stuff like that would be helpful for those of us trying to build a successful portfolio.
