Hey there I'm Richard. I'm a father, entrepreneur and former Wall Street Hedgefunder. I've owned a small portfolio of real estate investments since 1998 and traditionally I generated rental income through long-term rentals. About 4 years ago a buddy of mine mentioned Airbnb hosting for short term rentals. It sounded crazy at first, but I was willing to give it a shot. Happy to say in 2016 I generated over $500,000 in rental income which is 2-3 times what I would've generated long-term.

Now I want to share what I've learned over the last 4 years to help you get started on Airbnb and Homeawy and / or take your business to the next level.

My mission is to build a community of people who embrace the short term rental idea and share their own thoughts and learnings. I've learned plenty the hard way, and I don't know everything, but if we build a community we will all crush it in this space.

Stru

Excellent job Erika and richard . I can’t wait to listen to your new weekly podcasts. Keep up the great work and excellent content

Too much Erica. Give me old school Richard

I’ve watched and listened to every one of Richard’s original YouTube’s and podcast and love them. He’s so intelligent yet down to earth and will break things down for everyone to understand BUT now that Erica is included in everything, all the videos and pods are just them ooogling over each other. I could barely get through any of the recent pods but will give them another shot because Richard is so informative, knowledge, and actually cares about educating people. Give me more actionable knowledge and less gushing over each other. I’m here for the STR content!! Give us more of what we used to get.

Excellent content & quality!

BLOW. AWAY. What a treat that was to listen to. You guys are natural cohosts and your energy and intension flows fully, and loud & clear over the airwaves. Hats off to Charles for the excellent sound quality and production. I (like Charles) listen to a ton of podcasts and your’s is among the best produced I’ve come across. Bravo team ... when’s the next one??? Bring it on!
