  • 08:54 “A lot of times, it’s not necessarily money that is somebody’s issue- it’s somebody’s education around money.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 10:00 “When we’re purchasing the property, we’re buying it with value in it.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 14:12 “Debt is like fire and water. Fire is great to heat your house and cook food, but it could also be a disaster scenario, as in California. Water is the same thing. It’s important for life, but it can also take people’s lives. So debt, if it’s used wisely is an accelerator of wealth.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 17:36 “We want to develop a process for our business because it’s easier to have a model to do something if you want to replicate it rather than try to reinvent the wheel every single time.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 19:21 “At the end of the day, the money supports the mission. So any business needs to be able to make money to survive and continue.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 21:30 “It’s a lot more fun to work on a business than working in a business.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 23:12 “Money can be raised but time is the great equalizer.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 32:07 “Make your listing accurate and don’t make the expectations too much outside of what the actual impression is going to be.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 32:26 “Accuracy is kindness.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 33:06 “The customers that have complaints are typically the ones that are giving you the stuff that people wouldn’t tell you.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 34:01 “Your listing is like a newspaper or a billboard. The first thing is, it has to be as catchy… in the thumbnail image and also your title.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 37:34 “Match the right guest with the right property.” -Michael Hamilton
  • 48:12 “Making the choice to not have to go to a 9–5 provided a lot of freedom. Choosing a path like this is, there’s more freedom, but there’s also more responsibility.” -Michael Hamilton
