225. Creating The Nerd’s Guide To Financial Independence

Uncategorized Feb 02, 2023

After accumulating piles of debt and seeing all of her money go straight to bills, Sarah decided it was time to make a change and claim financial independence. Beginning in 2020, Sarah has since rebuilt her entire portfolio from 0 units back up to 13 units after a divorce, all with a three year old in tow and while working full time!

#STRShareSunday: On Waters Edge

strsharesunday Jan 22, 2023

It's time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing On Waters Edge!

This Gatlinburg, TN cabin is taking the whole cabin vibes thing all the way

Here's an interesting tidbit: a guest painted them a beautiful picture of the water from their deck, and gifted it to the host. Little did she know, the host was having a 12 hour brain surgery the same day the guest was painting this one-of-a-kind painting during her stay

There's a lot of chatter on social media about guests being messy or breaking things, but we don't always hear these kinds of stories: leaving an original piece of art to this host on a day where she really needed it without knowing what was going on in her world is just beautiful.

There are guests enjoying your space all the time, making memories that you may never know about. As we enter a new year with new challenges, we encourage you to lean in and make notes when hosts do something delightful like this. If you have amazing stories, share them on your social...
