Episode 7: Your Key Takeaways from VRMA

As many of you know, our live recording at the 2017 VRMA conference in Orlando didn’t record. Tech issues! We had lots of attendees share their key takeaways and it was a “magical” session as Tim says, but we did the next best thing – we asked all of you to send us your key takeaways from the conference and we summed them up on Episode 7.

Tim leads us into some juicy news about AHLA (American Hotel & Lodging Association) and well, I try my best English and Southern accents. Take a listen! 

Episode 6: Lemonade out of Lemons

Well, guess what folks…our live podcast at VRMA had some technical difficulties and while it was brilliant and full of rich takeaways from vacation rental folks around the world, it didn’t record.  But, we aren’t giving up! An email went out to all 1400 attendees asking for their “pay for the trip” takeaways.  So, look for a summary of all those goodies in Episode 7.  For this episode though, we did include three interviews we did with key players at VRMA – Mike Harrington (incoming VRMA President), Mike Copps (VRMA manager), and Ben Edwards (Tim says he’s the “most interesting man in vacation rentals”).  Take a listen.
