My colleagues and I have been in the hospitality industry for over 30 years with a passion for bringing a great experience to guests.
The stress of increasing the profits for the company at the cost of the employees and the clients kept getting bigger and bigger. New processes were introduced that I could not agree with as the client was getting less and less. I kept working hard trying to convince myself that I am doing this for my family, to provide for my kids - to get the paycheck. But deep down it did not sit well with me and my values. All through life I enjoyed helping people. Help them have a great hotel stay, have a great vacation, become a better employee or a better person.
So, one day I quit my job, well actually, I was asked to leave because I was the voice within the company that pushed the hardest against an initiative that I did not agree with and that did not sit well with my values.
The day that I was asked to resign was the day where I had the best night’s sleep in a long time. I was able to take a long break, I followed my passion and became a certified coach and followed my passion for helping people. I also opened a vacation rental business as I thought that was something I knew how to do, as I made big profits for the companies I worked for. I quickly found out that I now had to compete with all of the other vacation rental businesses, not the guests that are purchasing their vacation.
Well, the saved money was running out and I was facing not being able to provide for my family. I kept pushing to try to get a vacation rental business off the ground but could not get many clients because the homeowners went to other companies. I knew exactly why.
I was honest and couldn’t tell the wrong story to sign up new clients as I was competing with all the other management companies with their false claims and promises. Promises of high rental income, inflated occupancies and a high return on investment. Nothing was mentioned about the hidden deductions and everything that is omitted in their rental agreements. I saw myself going back to exactly the thing that I left – making a profit at the expense of the client.
"I don’t want to be in the rip-off business again", I said to myself. I want to help all the people that have a dream of owning a vacation rental home and not losing their shirt or being ripped off. I knew that it is possible to own a profitable vacation home if you make the right decisions.
I enjoy helping people and that was the reason why I studied how to be a leadership coach.
I now had my plan - Help all the future or present vacation home buyers to learn and free themselves from the greed of the management companies.
So, I took mine and my industry colleagues’ knowledge and created some unbiased resources to help every future and present vacation home owner make better decisions.
I know that I will make a few enemies along the way, as I will give my experiences on how management companies take more and more of the owner’s revenues. But again, I believe in my high values and my passion for helping people. Our organization wants to add value and help people buying a vacation home, help them make a good investment and help them have fun owning a vacation home.
All of our experiences are now written down on paper to help vacation homeowners become more successful. Use our knowledge to help you find the right vacation rental home and be aware of the mistakes you can make that can make owning a vacation home become a nightmare.
