Ellen quit her corporate job without a backup plan and bootstrapped her first $300 freelance project into over $2 million in revenue by age 28.

Ellen has been considering entering the hospitality industry, and today she joins the show “STR-curious,” turning the questions around on us. We talk through her goals with short-term rentals, the importance of location, achieving an STR license, the metrics to consider when purchasing a property, and why you should be thinking about your exit strategy from the very beginning.
