You don’t have to wonder how do to it anymore because we’ve laid the foundation for you. All you have to do is to read below!
Reach Out to Investors – Chris managed to get investors interested quickly in his dream by contacting manually at least 500 people a day. In the beginning, sacrifice long hours of your day to reaching as many people as you can. Even if you manage to get at least one investor interested, you’ll be successful.
Find Your Business Model – Chris says there are two business models. The first one is to find people that have a room, apartment or house for renting. Second one is to find people willing to invest in your business. The choice is yours.
Additional Tips to Running an AirBnB Business – As a part of any business, it’s important to know your ROI, margins, gross revenue, costs for management etc. Chris gives his tips on doing just that on the podcast.
“All the business models I just gave you don’t cost a thing except will power. All you have to do is pick up the phone and start dialing. If you want a paid version, where you have capital to work with, the smart business 1 on 1 is to buy a pre-existing model that’s already working”

Top Key Quotes
“I reached out to 500 people – manually. Not InMail, Linkedin all that automated stuff. I manually reached out to 500 people in 48 hours.”
“You’re a rentopreneur. You’re either going to apartment buildings or you’re going to somebody who has a vacancy in a house or somebody who has an extra room. If I was starting out right now, I would reach out to a friend or a family member who has an extra room in a house or their apartment, reach out to their listing person and tell them you want to add an addendum in the agreement that you’re going to put people in AirBnB. You don’t want to be a slime ball on his business.”
“If you have a following on Instagram or social media, if you have friends and family in your immediate circle, I can give two business models. Reach out to friends or family members who have an extra unit or extra place or apartment or in their house. The second business model, is to find people with capital, people with money.”
“I come from the gutter. My companies are doing almost 3,5 million dollars. How is that possible? I’ll tell you why, right here and right now. It’s because I didn’t quit.”
