How to Work a 9-5 & Be a Successful Real Estate Investor with Profitable Short-Term Rentals

Can you have the best of both worlds – working a job that you love while being a successful real estate investor and building wealth? If you’re Rachel Gainsbrugh the answer is yes. Rachel was facing what so many of us face, huge student loans – I’m talking over $500K, and a passion to figure out a revenue stream that would help her create a life she didn’t need a vacation from.

After a lot of research, Rachel found short-term real estate rentals, mainly through Airbnb, and was able to create a 15X revenue stream, which basically changed her life and her family’s. In this episode, we dive into Rachel’s story of success as she shares with you how to find the right properties for short-term rentals, how to avoid some of the biggest mistakes when it comes to real estate investing, and how to work a 9-5 job and still be a successful real estate investor. I hope this episode inspires you to think that if Rachel can do it, you can too. Let’s start talkin’.
