Short Term Rental Hosts:
Without The Right Strategy, You Are Leaving Money on the Table
You can grow and scale your business without sacrificing hospitality or your sanity
"I’m not lying or inflating the point that you guys have CHANGED THE GAME! I don’t even know how it was before you girls jumped on the scene but truly and wholeheartedly you’ve created a COMMUNITY! A thriving, breathing and living community making it a safe and DOABLE place for people like me to jump in and have the confidence to DO THE DAMN THING :)!
Please PLEASE keep doing what you’re doing and keep the community thriving with creative, kind and KNOWLEDGEABLE hosts. I’ve learned so very much and I have so far to go! Thanks again SO MUCH for making this possible for me to chase after a dream I would never have found attainable without your clear, concise and actionable steps.”
Here's the thing:
There are so many short-term rental hosts out there who struggle to strike the right balance between profit and hospitality.
They either prioritize profits, cutting corners with discount bedding, generic coffee, or (yikes!) subpar cleaning services.
OR they go above and beyond stocking the place with premium local roasts and organic, 1000+ thread-count sheets and other luxuries that eat way too far into their bottom line.
Still others find themselves trapped in a DIY rut: taking on all the things, scrubbing toilets, answering messages at 3 AM, making emergency repair calls on weekends. Yuck!
Are You Running Your Short-Term Rental the Right Way? Or Are You Constantly Scrambling, Guessing At The Right Rates, Caving to Discount Requests, So Overwhelmed You’re About to Throw In The Towel?
You got into this short-term rental business because you love hosting. Hospitality is in your DNA, and nothing makes you happier than providing a beautiful space for a guest.
The DIY route was fine in the beginning, but now you’re struggling.
You need reliable bookings, at rates that actually make you a profit.
You’re tired of guessing about which amenities will get you the most bang for your buck.
You can’t stomach the idea of following some “guru’s” advice and just cramming more “heads in beds” to increase capacity.
PS: This program is PERFECT for total newbies to the STR industry!!
We have helped loads of students start their STRs from scratch, avoiding all the usual pitfalls and growing pains from the beginning.

If you’ve ever thought…
there’s got to be a better way to host
If you want the secret to making reliable profits, without sacrificing guest experience...
We Can Help!!
We Have Both Been There.
We have both been there, wasting our weekends away scrubbing toilets, fluffing pillows, and stocking coffee bars, just to have our little bit of free time interrupted with an urgent message from a guest.
We were barely making enough to justify the hours we put in to these rentals. And we certainly were not tasting that FREEDOM we expected when we launched our hosting businesses.
Definitely NOT at the bottom of that mop pail.
We spent months doing short-term rentals the hard way, until one day we realized we could marry the right mix of marketing, systems, and financial know-how to turn massive profits without sacrificing guest experience.
Want to learn how we did it?
We’ve bundled all of our knowledge, expertise, skills, industry experience, and hospitality background (plus the many lessons we learned from mistakes made along the way), and we have created our one-of-its-kind GAME-CHANGING Hosting Mastery Program.
Let us take the guesswork out of hosting for you, so you can avoid all the hosting mistakes we made and run a wildly profitable business.
Wondering why it’s been such a struggle to start or scale your STR business?
Don’t beat yourself up! Real estate is notoriously tricky, and short-term rentals are a whole other ballgame. We know you’ve tried it all.
You YouTube’d all the things. Read all the blogs. Asked your Aunt Sally the real estate agent to help you crunch some numbers.
You even ventured into those free Facebook groups to ask for advice (and then slowly backed yourself out of there once you saw all the guest-bashing, woe-is-me complaining)
You listened to those bro marketers yelling about getting rich with real estate, just buy their seminar and they’ll teach you how (why are they always yelling??)
Real people who made real mistakes and learned real lessons while building a guest-centered, hospitality-driven short-term rental business.
Shouty, “heads in beds” guru guy is not your answer.
(Or don’t. But don’t blame us when your 5-star rating plummets.)
You knew the exact cost per day to run your rental…so you can set your prices confidently?
You had a calendar full of dream guests…so you can rest easy knowing your STR is in good hands?
You had the right team to support you…so you can avoid hosting burnout?
This is all possible when you follow the proven Hosting Business Mastery Method!

"I would encourage anyone who is diving in to the short-term rental industry to learn as much as you can from Annette and Sarah."
"We have had our short-term rental for 22 years. Being a part of the Business Mastery Method led by Annette and Sarah has helped fine tune some of our practices and procedures. In addition, it has been an opportunity to connect with others across the USA in the same field. Keeping up with best practices has always been a priority of mine. Annette and Sarah have helped me learn new technology that will be useful, too. It has been a great experience. I would encourage anyone who is diving in to the short-term rental industry to learn as much as you can from Annette and Sarah. They are the best.”
"The lessons that were taught here took the guesswork out of creating the systems needed to structure the business."
“I feel it's so important to treat our short term rentals as a business. This in turn allows us to scale over time with much less effort. The attention to details is what truly sets us apart. The lessons that were taught here took the guesswork out of creating the systems needed to structure the business."
"The course provided a HUGE resource that allowed me to easily quantify my expenses. It was a game changer!"
“These first two years I have been SO MUCH about operations and the guest experience, which has been great! It's garnered me all 5 star reviews and I simply LOVE what I do. But I had no idea how to truly understand where I stood financially in my business. That may sound crazy, but it's true. I had no idea what it actually cost me to host a guest in one of my units for one night. I was truly intimidated by numbers and scared that I couldn't figure that aspect of my business out. But the course provided a HUGE resource that allowed me to easily quantify my expenses. It was a game changer! Not only do I now have a good grasp on my finances, but I am so much more confident in myself as a business owner. It's a win/win!!”

"Our business' net profit grew by 187%."
"My husband (aka our numbers guy) just did the math and we found out our business’ net profit grew by 187% last year. 🤯 (Hmm, that’s also when Hosting Business Mastery Method began…) I’ve been saying this community is worth every penny, and now I have the data to back it up."

Who are Annette and Sarah, anyway?
Together, Annette Grant and Sarah Karakaian are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, and seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
Between the two of them, they have over 2,000 five-star reviews, their boutique hosting business brings in over 1 million in revenue, and they are on a mission to show others how to host with heart.
Each brings her own unique talents to the table.
Sarah is a details-obsessed operations guru whose determination & design-savvy took her from Broadway to HGTV & ultimately a thriving real estate business.
Annette is a professional people-person whose business-savvy led her from food & beverage server to multi-million-dollar business builder.
Three years ago, the pair connected at a city council meeting in Columbus, Ohio, where they showed up to fight for the right to operate ethical, hospitality-focused short-term rentals in their city, or as they like to say “the right to have strangers sleep in our beds.”
They quickly hit it off and discovered they had a ton in common.
Most importantly, they shared a deeply held belief in the power of heart-led hosting in the short-term rental space.
There were plenty of gurus teaching people how to turn a quick profit in real estate, but no one was preaching a guest-centric approach.
The duo became business partners, marrying their unique skill sets, personalities, and talents to teach others how to host with heart.
Today they are known for their value-packed podcast, Thanks for Visiting, which is packed actionable and impactful advice for short-term rental hosts at every level, from brand new to experienced.
Annette & Sarah are the founders of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, a one-of-its-kind membership, course, and group coaching community designed to help aspiring & experienced short-term rental hosts achieve reliable profits without sacrificing guest experience.
The Hosting Business Mastery Method was created to fill the huge gap in the industry between the “gurus” who push corner-cutting “heads in beds” tactics and the hosts like Annette & Sarah who strive for heart-led hospitality and impressive profits.
Annette & Sarah don’t just hide behind their laptop screens. Far from it!
These ladies practice what they preach, running a hosting company that generates over $1 million in revenue with metropolitan and vacation rental properties.
They keep up on all the latest trends, technology, and practices in the industry so they can bring their listeners and members the best, most up-to-date information.
Rumor has it, they are working on several exciting projects behind the scenes, including a joint real estate portfolio that is sure to put their names on the map as among today’s strongest female real estate investors.

Now, the details.
The HBMM Course content is broken into
Four Essential Phases:
Phase 1: Build Your Brand
Mission, Vision, Vibe
Network = Net Worth
Mindset. Is. Everything.
If you’re like a lot of our students, you got into this business because you love design, hospitality, travel, real estate, or some combination of the above...but you don’t have a ton of tangible business-building experience. Phase 1 will walk you through the pieces you need to put yourself in the entrepreneurial spirit (and if you get stuck, bring it to the coaching calls and the community — we’re all happy to help!)
Phase 2: Master Operations
Your Dream Team
Without the right team, systems, and safety mechanisms in place, you’ll never stop scrambling. We teach you exactly how (and who!) to hire, which systems make all the difference, and how to avoid disaster with some simple but often-overlooked safety checks.
Phase 3: Prioritize Profit
A Business Without Profit is Just a Hobby.
We know you want to make a profit. Yet too many of us want to bury our heads in the sand, ignoring our numbers. We break down the real deal when it comes to finances: how to establish your pricing strategy, track your profits & expenses, and maintain control over your numbers. Plus, we have a pretty sweet spreadsheet that does most of the work for you.
Phase 4: Forecast Your Future
STR Management Strategy
Where Do We Go From Here?
The fourth phase has you envision the future. What growth pathways exist, how can you continue to grow and scale in a healthy & sustainable way? What other opportunities are out there in the STR world? Phase 4 will have you busting out the vision boards & dreaming big.

“I just wanted to share a huge win I had yesterday that I would not have had if not for Sarah and Annette. Long story short…I spoke to them about finding a real estate mentor and they suggested I reach out to someone who’s doing what I want to do. A local investor/developer who’s been rehabbing and revitalizing our historic downtown with multi-family lofts for the last 10+years came to mind.
Then last Saturday he was on a boom lift as I happened to walk by his project and we set up a meeting for yesterday. We met for four hours, walked his project and he asked me to get on board. It honestly could not have gone better. Thank you, thank you, Sarah and Annette for that advice! Truly grateful.” -TJ Hess
