Hello, friends! It’s Richard, founder Short-Term Rental University and Airbnb super host.
On today’s Monday blog where we talk about things that are in my mind, not necessarily relating the air B&B, we’re gonna talk about 2018 and things that I personally want to improve on both professionally and personally.
Why put this out on YouTube and in writing for the world to see? There’s an accountability measure by being transparent, being communicative, by putting goals out there and having it out on display.
1.) I think it’s gonna help me actually achieve it and
2.) I can look back years later or my grandkids can go back and say “Here’s what daddy or granddaddy was thinking about in 2018.” So hold me accountable!
Let’s start with business.
I think there’s a couple of things that I’m primarily focused on.
- YouTube channel and Blog
- Short-Term Rental University
Business Goal #1: Content
I really want to provide as much content, advice, motivation, and education to help more entrepreneurs. I want them to be able to generate more success, grow their businesses, and grow themselves. I find it incredibly rewarding, personally, and there’s just no substitute for that feeling. Once I’m in this zone and helping people out getting comments and feedback, it becomes addictive. I’m loving doing it and I want to do more of it in 2018 as well as be more helpful.
Business Goal #2: Transition
The second business goal is I’m transitioning my business from air B&B hosting and management and so on into a broader opportunity set which I’ll call development. I’m doing more Airbnb deals globally and there’s a lot of time and energy involved in these larger deals. There is a lot of financial resources tied up in it so that comes with a lot of variability and uncertainty. I really want to take my real-estate Empire and business to the next level starting in 2018 and we’re off to a great start with these methods and transactions. I’m doing three different deals in Jackson Hole, I’ve got one large development deal in Bali, and there’s a couple of other things that I’m looking at.
Now I have to execute, the right the idea was there and now I actually have to get it done!
Let’s turn towards personal.
To me this is really meaningful and broad, it is really just two words. The first word is experience and the second one is adventure. I’m on a life journey and I just want to live life to the fullest every single minute of every single day. The object of my desire is to experience a life filled with adventure so I don’t care if the experience is involving travel. trying a new food type, skiing a slope that I’ve never done before, etc. I just want to experience it all, I don’t want to turn anything down and I want to be open-minded in 2018 and beyond.
What’s really cool, from my perspective, is that you guys are a part of this journey. My business goal is STRU, my personal goal is the experience. I’m going to be traveling and documenting all of this. If you don’t follow me on Instagram or Twitter, check it out. I post things there in real time that are different and unique from this channel and these articles so come see what I’m up to on a daily basis.
