Hello! I'm the Founder and CEO of Epicurean Properties; a boutique provider of furnished short-term rentals based in Columbus, Ohio.
I don’t do a lot of consulting, but I’m happy to accept the occasional call and show other short-term rental hosts how to get more direct bookings and attract longer stays.
We started exclusively on Airbnb, but today 95% of our guests book directly and for 30+ nights.
Our portfolio has grown from 0-32 units in less than 2 years, and I'm happy to share exactly how we did it.
I've been a full-time entrepreneur since age 23.
My first "real" business was a valet trash & recycling company that I founded with a friend in 2010.
In 5 years, we built that business to 7 figures in revenue with teams in 5 cities across the Midwest.
We were acquired in 2018 by the largest company in our industry, marking my first successful exit from an entrepreneurial venture.
