Replacing Your Income Using Airbnb with Zeona McIntyre – Part 3 Investing

Extra Pack Of Peanuts Podcast 383 Replacing Your Income Using Airbnb with Zeona McIntyre – Part 3 Investing

Zeona McIntyre went from a $12 an hour retail job while side-hustling by renting out her place on Airbnb to owning her own Airbnb property to now having an entire vacation property management company that she runs while still traveling around the world.

This is part three of this series and we get into the investing side of it all. What should you be looking for when purchasing a property for hosting on Airbnb or any short term rental platform? We will be answering the following: investor partnerships vs solo, cash vs financing, turnkey vs work needed, how to keep up with the ever-changing laws and so much more. If you have ever played with the idea of buying an investment property for short term rental then listen closely because we are discussing it all.

Epic Trips & Micro-Adventures w/ Alastair Humphreys

Extra Pack Of Peanuts Podcast Epic Trips & Micro-Adventures w/ Alastair Humphreys

Do you allow your lack of funds to dictate your travels or lack thereof? Are you looking for an epic adventure or are you more of a micro-adventurer? Today’s guest is someone whose accomplishments will make you feel slightly guilty you didn’t hit the gym yesterday since they include cycling around the world for 4 years, rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, pulled a 600-pound sled across the Empty Quarter desert & for good measure, completed an unsupported trek across Iceland by foot and pack-raft.

It’s no wonder that he was the 2012 National Geographic Traveler of the Year, and Geographic Magazine calls him “Slightly bonkers but this a wonderful thing”, Alastair Humphreys from AlastairHumphreys.com and author of 10 books, including the latest My Midsummer Morning.
